Hurricane Ian leaves two million without power in Florida


Hurricane Ian, a powerful category four storm, is bringing severe flooding, high winds and storm surges to the Florida coast

It is losing power as it moves inland, and has now been downgraded to a category one system, reports the BBC.

More than two million customers in Florida have no electricity as a result of the hurricane.

It made landfall on Wednesday afternoon with maximum sustained wind speeds of 241km/h (150mph) near the city of Fort Myers.

Florida Governor Ron DeSantis warns people in the storm’s path to get ready for “a nasty, nasty” couple of days.

US Border Patrol is looking for up to 23 migrants missing after their ship sank during the storm.

The hurricane barrelled through Cuba on Tuesday, killing two people and shattering the country’s electrical grid.
