President Joe Biden spoke Thursday about the havoc that Hurricane Ian wrecked in Florida after it made landfall on Wednesday.
"It is still moving across the state today. This could be the deadliest hurricane in Florida's history. The numbers are still unclear but we are hearing early reports of what may be substantial loss of life," he said while speaking from the FEMA headquarters in Washington, DC.
Biden said he spoke to Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis, mayors and the commissioner, who, he said, are worried, but the President commended them for the "incredible" jobs they're doing to "save their cities, their towns" and their infrastructure.
Biden also issued a message for Floridians.
"My message to people in Florida, at times like this: America comes together. We’re going to pull together as one team, as one America," he said.
