Hurricane Ian left lasting devastation 

Last week we were all watching and waiting to see the effects of Hurricane Ian. It looked like a monster storm that was barreling straight for the Gulf Coast of Florida at Cat 4 to 5 levels with sustained winds of upwards of 150+ miles per hour. What we were not ready for was the absolute destruction Ian brought to Florida and other parts of our countries South Eastern States.

The damage is immense, cities like Fort Myers, Naples and towns and islands in between are possibly forever changed, their coastlines are washed away, Ian blew, rained and flooded everything in it’s path. For us in in the Northeast it’s hard to fathom the amount of damage and destruction until you see images that are mind blowing and unforgettable.

Former WCVB Ch.5 Entertainment Report tweeted a picture of the inside of Naples home showing the incredible amount of water just waiting outside her sliding glass doors. The photo literally brings it all home, because this is just one of thousands of homes that are either lost or severely damaged from Ian’s powerful wrath.
