Hurricane Ian, September 2022

Hurricane Ian was the third-costliest weather disaster on record, the deadliest hurricane to strike the state of Florida since the 1935 Labor Day hurricane, and the strongest hurricane to make landfall in Florida since Michael in 2018. It“came ashore on the western coast of Florida with an unforgiving storm surge”. It then moved up the Atlantic coast, hitting North and South Carolina. More than 100 people died in Florida as a result of the storm’s devastation, said  The New York Times,  more “than any hurricane in almost 90 years”.  The total death toll was 161.
