Florida Governor Ron DeSantis visited a Waffle House and provided meals to locals, leaving everyone pleasantly surprised as he helped cook and prepare breakfast. “.@WaffleHouse is one of the first restaurants in Charlotte County to reopen and provide hot meals as we work together to serve Floridians after #HurricaneIan.” DeSantis wrote on Twitter. “Thank you for providing meals to the linemen working to restore power.”
Recently, Hurricane Ian made landfall close to Cayo Costa, Florida, as a Category 4 hurricane with wind speeds of 155 mph, just 2 mph short of a Category 5. In a Facebook video, Lee Area Sheriff Carmine Marceno stated that there had been roughly 35 fatalities in the county as a whole. “It’s with a heavy heart that I say that number,” Marceno said. Only a few days later, Ian, a Category 1 hurricane, made a second landfall in the United States close to Georgetown, South Carolina, as reported.
President Biden stated that Hurricane Ian’s destruction in Florida is likely to “rank among the worst in the nation’s history.”
“We’re beginning to see the scale of the devastation in Florida which is likely to rank among the worst in the nation’s history. Our hearts break for the folks whose lives have been devastated by this storm. We are with you. And we’ll stay at it for as long as it takes.”, Biden’s Twitter said.
