Hurricane Ian has reached a category 4 storm. Our teams are preparing to respond to the potentially devastating impact of this storm across Florida.

  • 130 – 156 MPH winds
  • Ian made landfall in southwest Florida just after noon today and is expected to bring significant damage to Central Florida
  • It’s been 101 years since a Hurricane hit eastern Florida
  • The majority of the west coast of the Florida peninsula is also included in a Storm Surge Warning
  • The strongest winds, the highest storm surge, and the spin in the atmosphere is an extremely dangerous combination.
