Videos from all over Florida have been flooding in, demonstrating the incredible strength and destruction that Hurricane Ian has produced. This natural disaster was not one to be taken lightly. People lost houses and loved ones on a scale our country has not experienced too frequently due to powerful winds and raging floods.
This time-lapse video shows the storm surge’s approach to the Fort Myers Beach region, from the first trickle of water to the scene that looks like it should have been on the open ocean. In the end, even the shanty that is visible to us is washed away. Thankfully, reports indicate that the occupants of the house managed to leave without incident—even after floating away.
