WATCH: Ian brings flooding, damage to southwest Florida #shorts

Making landfall as a Category 4 storm not far from Fort Myers on Wednesday, Hurricane Ian brought winds of 150 mph to Florida’s Gulf Coast.

The storm knocked out power to more than two million people as it continues to move northeast toward the east coast.

Now at tropical storm strength, Ian could regain strength and strike coastal South Carolina as a Category 1 hurricane as early as Friday morning.
