Boots on the Ground for Hurricane Ian

Hurricane Ian made landfall on Wednesday afternoon as a category 4 hurricane with sustained winds of approximately 150 mph. It did a lot of damage in Fort Meyers and some of the surrounding ocean front communities.
 
As soon as it hit land, the storm lost a lot of strength. Most of the damage is right on the ocean front and only a few miles inland. The majority of the damage was either from high winds or related to the storm surge that came in from the ocean. Overall, the storm damage is a lot more localized than original forecast predictions were indicating.
 
We partnered with Cajun Navy for the initial response and had a team on the ground when the storm hit. They have been involved with search & rescue, as well as doing situational assessment regarding the storm damage.
