Hurricane Ian slams into Florida: One of the strongest storms in US history

Hurricane Ian slammed into Florida's southwestern coast on September 28.

This is considered one of the most powerful storms in US history.

The storm tore apart homes, buildings and left some residents stranded as storm surge flooded communities.

Nearly 2 million homes are without power in Florida.

Ian’s strength at landfall tied it for the fifth-strongest hurricane when measured by wind speed to strike the US.

Forecasters say the storm will soon be downgraded to a tropical storm as it moves east across Florida.

Hurricane Ian’s massive wind gusts wiped out 911 emergency call centers and trapped people in their homes.

Four Cuban migrants swam to shore in Florida and three others were rescued from the ocean after their boat sank.

However, 20 more people may still be missing, according to officials.
