Category 4 Storm Ian Leaves Widespread Damage in Florida

Hurricane Ian

Hurricane Ian is expected to make landfall in South Carolina on Friday, after causing catastrophic flooding and damage in Florida. Ian made landfall on Florida’s gulf coast on Wednesday as a category 4 storm, with Fort Meyers taking a direct hit. Around two million homes and businesses remain without power. President Biden said Thursday, “The numbers are still unclear, but we're hearing early reports of what may be substantial loss of life.” Catholic Charities USA has launched a disaster relief team to mobilize in Florida. Every dollar donated to Catholic Charities hurricane relief fund will benefit victims and recovery efforts.
