A house on State Road A1A stands on its pylons after the seawall it stood on was eroded by waves caused by Hurricane Ian/Tropical Storm Ian Friday, Sept. 30, 2022 at Vilano Beach in St. Augustine. The Florida Department of Transportation worked to secure the section of road on A1A from eroding. Hurricane Ian, that was later reduced to a tropical storm, ripped through the region Thursday bringing winds, rain, flooded roads, power outages and downed trees. Jki 093022 A1a House 16
CHARLESTON, S.C. (AP) — A revived Hurricane Ian made landfall on coastal South Carolina on Friday. It’s threatening the historic city of Charleston with severe flooding after the deadly storm caused catastrophic damage in Florida and trapped thousands in their homes. The U.S. National Hurricane Center says Ian’s center came ashore near Georgetown on Friday afternoon, with much weaker winds than when it crossed Florida’s Gulf Coast on Wednesday as one of the strongest storms to ever hit the U.S. Sheets of rain whipped trees and power lines and left many areas on Charleston’s downtown peninsula under water. At least nine people were confirmed dead in the U.S., but that number is expected to increase.
