Catastrophic Damage Left by Hurricane Ian
500-Year Flooding Event
Ian made landfall Wednesday, September 28th, 2022 as an "extremely dangerous" hurricane with maximum sustained winds of 150 miles per hour on Florida's southwestern coast near Cayo Costa, an island to the west of Cape Coral, according to the National Hurricane Center. It then shifted north-northeast and made landfall with maximum sustained winds of 145 mph on mainland Florida, barreling northeast across the state. The storm left a path of destruction leaving nearly 2.7 million people without power. Florida’s governor called Ian a “500-year flooding event.”
We partnered with ministries on the ground in South Florida to provide disaster relief as quick as possible. With the support of our partners, we were able to sponsor tractor trailers stocked with equipment and supplies.
