Hurricane Ian hit Florida's Gulf Coast with catastrophic force, unleashing winds, heavy rainfall and ocean surf. All this made it one of the strongest storms in the United States in recent years, as reported by Reuters.

Ian is reported to have made landfall near Cayo Costa on 28 September. The US National Hurricane Center noted that winds reached 241 km per hour. But then the speed increased. The hurricane nearly reached Category 5 on the Saffir-Simpson scale, the most severe classification for storms with the highest sustained wind speeds.

The story said Gov. Ron DeSantis said Ian had caused life-threatening storm surges — waves of wind-driven seawater flooding the coast. They reach a height of 3.7 meters. Local forecasters also warned of severe thunderstorms and possible tornadoes.

National Weather Service director Ken Graham said this is a storm that Americans will be talking about for years to come.

“This is a historic event” , Graham said.

The publication writes that the city of Fort Myers Beach was almost flooded by flood waters. Locals saw the ruins of houses floating downstream along with cars. Ion is considered one of the most ferocious hurricanes to hit the U.S. mainland in recent years.

Ion has cut power to at least 1.1 million homes and businesses, according to local utilities.< /p>

It is noted that the hurricane came to the United States from Cuba. There, he left most of the population without access to electricity.

We also recall that in Alaska there are more and more lakes “boiling” with methane. These relatively new bodies of water are so filled with climate-damaging gas that you can see it bubbling on the surface.
