THE WRATH OF IAN: Shocking Footage Shows Extent of Damage from Deadly Hurricane

posted by Hannity Staff - 9.29.22

Shocking footage from Fort Myers, Florida has surfaced in the wake of Hurricane Ian; power boats, yachts and jet skis were ripped to pieces and litter the area as few structures are left standing. The New York Post reports that the area is “decimated and unrecognizable.”

From The New York Post:

City officials had handed out evacuation orders the day before the the storm hit, but some residents stayed, believing the hurricane would hit further north, as forecasters predicted.

Robert Negrin, 74, and his wife Jane, 65, rode out the storm in their 24th floor apartment overlooking the Caloosahatchee River, which was shaking as it got battered by the storm on Wednesday night.

“Our building was swaying” when Ian hit, Robert said.

“We had water in the tub for our toilet, which was sloshing around. It was frightening.”

When the couple realized Hurricane Ian was going to hit them directly instead of Tampa Bay, it was too late to leave.

“We couldn’t get a hotel room, the gas stations were out of gas and we were told the highways were packed,” Robert said

“Once the hurricane path changed it was too late to leave,” Jane added.
