Hurricane ian slams south carolina after deadly march across florida

Global News published this video item, entitled “Hurricane Ian slams South Carolina after deadly march across Florida” – below is their description.

A resurgent Hurricane Ian slammed into the South Carolina coast on Friday afternoon, making another landfall after a deadly march across the Florida peninsula that washed away houses and stranded thousands along the U.S. Gulf Coast. Ian was expected to bring life-threatening flooding, storm surges and winds to South Carolina, Georgia and North Carolina. Officials in all three states warned residents to prepare for dangerous conditions.

“Every single minute counts,” President Joe Biden said at a Friday press briefing. “This is an American crisis… likely to rank among the worst in the nation’s history.”

At a separate press briefing, representatives from the U.S. Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) also provided updates on the details and anticipations of Hurricane Ian as it moved inland from Florida to South Carolina, urging local residents to stay updated with local reports.

The hurricane came ashore on Florida’s Gulf Coast on Wednesday as one of the most powerful storms ever to hit the U.S. mainland, transforming beach towns into disaster areas with catastrophic flooding and winds.

There have been reports of at least 21 deaths in Florida, according to Kevin Guthrie, director of the state’s Division of Emergency Management, at a morning briefing. Ian was forecast to weaken rapidly as it moves inland across the Carolinas and was expected to dissipate over western North Carolina or Virginia late on Saturday, the National Hurricane Center (NHC) said.
