Florida Death toll Rises following Hurricane Ian


The death toll from Hurricane Ian has reportedly risen past 80 in Florida as rescue personnel continue to search for survivors and assess the damage.

Officials in Florida have come under fire as critics allege residents in some hard-hit areas did not receive enough advance warning to evacuate.

At least half of the deaths recorded so far are in Lee County, where Ian made landfall as a Category 4 hurricane.

President Joe Biden is expected to visit Florida on Wednesday.
