In the article, “Florida Begins Hurricane Ian Recovery” (BTW, btwadmin, 2022) I learned that the aftermath of hurricane Ian led to efforts in recovery. After Hurricane Ian, a Category 4 storm, struck Florida, thousands of people were affected. At least a hundred people in Florida were killed, with a good percentage of them still missing. The aftermath of the hurricane left 400,000 Floridians without electric power, thousands of houses and businesses destroyed, and schools shut down. Roads were washed away and bridges were damaged. To aid recovery, the Disaster Survivor Assistance Team was deployed to help civilians with federal assistance. The Florida Division of Emergency Management distributed food, water, and ice to affected residents of Florida around Fort Myers. Thousands of volunteers are also helping with recovery in Florida.
Florida is constantly under destruction from natural disasters, specifically hurricanes. The government should continue its efforts in providing the affected communities with resources and temporary relief, like short-term homes and assistance. A famous YouTuber, named Danny Duncan, had his hometown in Florida struck by a hurricane, Englewood. He traveled back to his family’s hometown to help families affected by Hurricane Ian by providing supplies. Danny Duncan even says, “I don’t know what I can do to help besides put it out to millions of people that could potentially then help. I mean, I feel like I can’t really do shit myself but I’m going to try. Obviously, it feels, overwhelming.”
