Residents of Florida and the Carolinas are picking up the pieces after Hurricane Ian left a path of destruction in its wake.
Ian hit Florida on Wednesday with winds near 150 mph, making it a high-end Category 4 hurricane. Emergency responders in the state have been conducting rescues by air, land and boat to save people trapped by the floodwaters. Gov. Ron DeSantis called it "a 500-year flood event."
After sweeping through Florida, Ian restrengthened in the Atlantic before making landfall in South Carolina on Friday.
"This is a dangerous storm that will bring high winds and a lot of water," South Carolina Gov. Henry McMaster tweeted. "Be smart, make good decisions, check on your loved ones, and stay safe."
