1. @Randi Bagley-Goodwin illegal form is kidnapping but dodging a storm is good probably only thing DeathSantis has ever done

  1. Homes on fire in spite of the deluge from the air as well as from the sea. It’s mind blowing.

    I’m from The Netherlands. We had our fair share of flooding over the centuries. Hence we developped technology to prevent the country from disapearing under the waves.

    The Dutch were hired by the Coast Guard to prevent further damage being done to New York, to New Orleans and to Los Angeles. Having seen this, I believe we have to help our friends in Florida as well.

    My heart bleeds for the Floridians. Stay strong🌷🇺🇸🥂🇳🇱🌷.

    1. @N R

      Good day to you.

      No anyone can donate. After Hurricane Katrina an initiative in The Netherlands aimed at $1 per Dutch citizen. In stead of that $25mio was collected, about $1,50 per citizen. No doubt there will be something similar this time.

    2. @R McDud Mk2

      Good day to you,
      Now is a chance to live up to expectations. I’m waiting for Trump to blame the Democrats/Biden for this.

    3. @René van Baren, promotieonderzoeker filosofie The farmers being displaced for the Tri-State City. Claus Schwab needs his new world order headquarters at the behest of the worlds best farmers.

  2. OMG, they are going to have every bridge checked to make sure they have not been damaged. This is going to be a lengthy recovery for many Floridians. Praying for you all.

    1. @David C it doesn’t matter what it cost it shouldn’t have happened but they are lucky they dodged the storm so that’s good 👍

    1. Gotta keep pumping the real estate market in Florida…this is a once in a lifetime storm, right guys? Keep buying my swampland pls!

    2. It’s going to get a lot worse too. FL will get hit time and time again as oceans warm up and eventually a cat 5 (or even 6) will wreck the place. And you will not be able to get affordable home insurance there either after a few of these (unless you’re rich) . It’s already incredibly expensive in some areas. Expect that to get worse as well.

  3. Very sad / I hope ruined areas are cleaned up and allowed to go natural – we need undeveloped coast lines especially now in order to protect both ocean, gulf, and people.

    1. @R McDud Mk2 That still wouldn’t have stopped 150mph winds or 2 feet of rainfall in only twenty hours.
      And you’re underestimating the cost of sea walls tall enough to handle that big a storm surge.
      And where would they go?

      There is no projecting the path of a hurricane and every one is different, walls protecting the entire Florida coastline would cost hundreds of billions if not trillions. When we’re clearly not willing to invest that much in anything other than propping up corporations.
      When, as currently in demonstration, we’d rather continue starting wars for power and profits and propping up unsustainable economic and energy systems even as the world burns up and gets swallowed by the oceans.
      Quit with the bs fantasies and get real.

    2. @The Great CornPop-Holio then stay away fr this channel that you can’t stand , and funny how you are here little boy.

  4. After loss of life, and/or loss of your home mid storm, the absolute worst part of a hurricane is after it’s gone.
    There you are breathing the freshest air you’ve breathed in years, bright sunshine, no power, maybe even no running water and surrounded by utter devastation. Mosquitoes come out to barbecue as you slave away cleaning up 🦟🦟🦟🦟🦟🦟🦟🥴🦟🦟🦟🦟🦟🦟
    Best wishes to Fla for a speedy recovery

    1. Florida would be in good shape if their governor spent as much time improving the state as he did commiting fraud and worrying about legal immigrants in other states.

    2. @chew itt well that wouldn’t be a problem if DeSantis hadn’t gone out of his way to cost the state a couple billion dollars in tax revenue from Disney with his anti-gay bigotry 🤣

    1. @P J And every Christians don’t need Life Insurance if they’re all going to Heaven? Right? Unless they can’t afford it.

    2. @arizjones Compassion and having a heart doesn’t require a banner. I am not preaching against religion. Humanity doesn’t require assembling in a building once a week like most people do and call it faith.

    3. @Kris Frederick Who said anything about a banner or a building? Get over your condescending garbage, where you talk down to people that pray for them. Like I said what have you done?

    4. @Kris Frederick People get life insurance for those that are left behind to be financially supported. What does getting into heaven have to do with it? Having faith doesn’t mean you don’t think and use the resources that God gives you. And yes, you actually are “preaching against religion”. It is pretty obvious.

  5. Well didn’t Florida have a lot of issues with bad construction and faulty inspections ? I hope their state and local governments do a better job in the future. Good luck to all of those effected by hurricane Ian.

    1. Yes about 30 years ago when a bad hurricane hit south Florida. They upgraded the building code but almost all existing housing was grandfathered in. In my neighborhood most of the houses are over 75 years old many are more than a hundred years old. For all intents and purposes, most of the homes here are slapped together shacks but they are also where people live and were landlords ordered to bring everything up to code it would mean many thousands of additional homeless people. So it’s a lose lose situation.

  6. Sanibel Island was the last place I was before moving back up north 6 years ago. Wow. Just stunning, the damage. It’s a beautiful island, such a shame this has happened. Fort Myers was where I was living before moving back up! Thank God I moved. My heart goes out to everyone there, truly. I pray for everyone’s safety, in that whole area…

  7. In the wake of this disaster, I sincerely hope two things will happen: 1)that climate change will be taken very seriously by all levels of government and the voters and 2) that planning and reconstruction will be seriously planned to include well researched building /planning techniques for rebuilding infrastructure and homes to help mitigate the damage caused by the growing severity of these storms.

    1. @Former Democrat Nope. Hurricanes have gotten consistently stronger, especially in terms of how much water rain the produce.

    2. @Bob Woods the science is a bunch of data models that can’t possibly consider every single variable. There have been more cat 4 and 5 hurricanes before 1960s in fl then after, if these hurricanes are caused or aggravated by climate change how do you explain that?

    3. @Ryan Fraser So we don’t need science anymore because people like you know everything? Do you have any credentials at all?

  8. I’m wondering how Puerto Rico is doing. Will the same level of effort and resources be put into PR recovery as for FL? I certainly hope PR doesn’t get forgotten.

    1. The Democrat run Puerto Rico stole all of the federal aid money last time and left warehouses full of supplies without any distribution. Kinda reminds me of Democrat run Flint, MI stealing all of the federal funds to get their lead pipes fixed.

  9. I wonder how much of Florida will still be habitable in the 2050s given the rising sea levels and the permanently elevated risk of more and more severe storms? No more Mar-a-Lago, that’s for sure.

    1. If there was a problem with rising sea levels, people that live in Florida would certainly let you know as a lot of them have had beachfront property for many years, including Barack Obama

    2. @Kyle Dupont Patience, my friend, patience. The polar ice melting is picking up pace well enough. You might probably spot some early signals based on how those beachfront properties are insured, and, for another example, how largest oil companies have modified their drilling rig designs according to their internal unpublished climate research years ago already.

  10. For all those who say, “the federal government is oppressive and needs to keep themselves out of our business”, think about how much all the agencies of the federal government are there to help when you need them, regardless of whether or not the state is “blue” or “red”. It just doesn’t matter. Next time you see a Coastie, or a FEMA rep. or EPA rep. thank THEM for their service. They do more than you can possibly imagine.

    1. @arizjones there talking about the the old Repulican speech of small government and state liberty. No way any state can handle disasters like this alone

    2. @Sherisa S They’re is the contraction of they are. SMH. Try letting RS speak for themselves. States rights is not about not having a Federal government to help in natural disasters. There is a reason it is called the UNITED states. Because we are United, but still separate states.

    3. @Suzanne Bodette Blue States, representatives pass the highest amounts of spending in their legislation. Way past anything they are paying into the system.

  11. Was it the storm surges that did most of the damage? It kind of reminds me what happened to New Orleans a number of years ago. I live in Sheffield, UK, but I stayed up much of the night to watch the live broadcasts. Do you think this monster storm might be a blueprint for future storms in your part of the USA?

    1. New Orleans sits below sea level and when Katrina hit, the drainage system failed. The city filled like a quarry would, with no way of being drained. The water sat for weeks. Florida has hurricane season. If the winds kept it within a Cat 4 but more water was brought inland, then scientists will point to climate change. These are the effects sadly.

  12. I hope everyone who has been affected by this horrible storm is able to pick up the pieces and move on to some semblance of normal soon. There are no words to describe this destruction. 🙏

  13. I was able to walk around in the southwest part of Sanabel island..The moment I got out of my car I started crying…I’ve heard the phrases “utter destruction” or “catastrophic” from what i saw,i was completely taken back,I was absolutely “Speechless”..There are no words for what I saw…To all my peeps from Ft.Myers We will rebuild…

  14. 6:24 it wasn’t climate change necessarily making it so strong. It was the eyewall replacement cycle occurring at the worst possible time so it could reform way higher. More hurricanes is climate change, but a strong one needs special conditions also. A good example is how the strongest hurricane ever recorded was in 1935 with winds of 185mph. We aren’t getting more category 5s than normal, just more in general.
