'FATALITIES IN THE HUNDREDS': Hurricane Horrors Revealed as Florida Officials Assess the Damage

posted by Hannity Staff - 9.29.22

Floridians are reeling from Hurricane Ian’s destructive impact; one local sheriff says they already suspect fatalities to be in the hundreds.

We have fatalities in the hundreds,” Sheriff Carmine Marceno said, although noting he couldn’t confirm specific numbers. “This is a life-changing event for all of us. We tracked that storm up the coast of Florida, it was very unpredictable,” Marceno said.

“We still cannot access many of the people that are in need,” Marceno said. “It’s a real, real rough road ahead.”

President Biden has approved a Florida disaster declaration for many counties hit hard by Ian.

“Assistance can include grants for temporary housing and home repairs, low-cost loans to cover uninsured property losses, and other programs to help individuals and business owners recover from the effects of the disaster,” the White House said.

Florida Governor Ron DeSantis confirmed that thousands of Floridians will need help rebuilding, and shared ways that Americans can donate towards those efforts.

“Thousands of Floridians will need help rebuilding from #HurricaneIan. To contribute to the Florida Disaster to help those in need, visit FloridaDisasterFund.org or text DISASTER to 20222.”

From ABC News:

Ian’s winds weakened to 65 mph on Thursday morning, downgrading the system to a tropical storm as it moved over central Florida. The storm made landfall on Florida’s west coast on Wednesday as a powerful Category 4 hurricane.

Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis has declared a state of emergency.
