Hurricane Ian: Live Chopper Feeds Over Florida Disaster Areas | Tracking the Tropics on WFLA now


Authorities throughout southwest Florida will hit the road on Thursday in communities battered by the massive Hurricane Ian to assess damage, clear debris and respond to calls for help as millions of Floridians remain sheltered in place.

Ian, now weakened to a tropical storm, made landfall near Cayo Costa, Florida, on Wednesday afternoon, bringing powerful Category 4 hurricane-strength winds, rain and surge to the doorsteps of millions. Many coastal communities remained under several inches of flood water on Thursday and many more were left without electricity.
