Meanwhile, Florida is struggling with massive storm damage. Florida Governor Ron DeSantis said nearly two million homes remain without power. Many areas are largely cut off from the power grid, and almost one area. Thousands of people are being housed in emergency shelters.

Florida authorities currently estimate at least 21 people have died from the storm. However, these numbers are not yet clear.

As a Category 4 hurricane, Ian made landfall in Florida on Wednesday with winds of up to 240 kilometers per hour. It left in its wake devastation and floods across the southern state.

A state of emergency has been declared in South Carolina due to the hurricane. US President Joe Biden called on residents to follow the authorities’ instructions.
