On Tuesday, DeSantis urged those in Hurricane Ian’s potential path to evacuate, according to the New York Post. “What we have here is really historic storm surge and flooding potential,” DeSantis said. “In some areas there will be catastrophic flooding and life-threatening storm surges.” According to WYFF-TV, the storm is expected to hit Georgia, South Carolina and North Carolina after it hits Florida.
