Hurricane Ian, a category 4 hurricane, made landfall on Florida’s southwestern coast last week with massive flooding and winds. It is considered one of the worst natural disasters in Florida’s history, causing deaths, economic losses, and $28-47 billion in estimated property damages. This week, 310,000 people are still without power. Communities are now recovering and rebuilding from the hurricane, which will take time.
Florida community managers, board members, and residents, many of whom have been impacted by Hurricane Ian themselves, are working diligently to communicate with one another as they deal with the aftermath of Hurricane Ian.
