Catastrophic Hurricane Idalia makes landfall on Florida coast


Storm downgraded to Category 3 hurricane as it made landfall on Florida’s west coast

Hurricane Idalia made landfall on Florida’s west coast as a Category 3 storm on Wednesday.

The storm has already caused life-threatening storm surges and rainfall in an area not accustomed to such storms.

Authorities have warned that residents should immediately move to their shelters or safe rooms. Unprecedented degrees of damage caused by the extreme 130 mp/h (210 km/h) winds and extreme storm surges are expected.

The NY Times quoted Florida Governor Ron DeSantis as telling residents, “Don’t mess with this storm,” and warning them not to put themselves in jeopardy.

“It’s going to be a significant, significant impact.”

Christian Caban, a Leon County commissioner, said the storm would have “a lasting impact on surrounding communities.” He warned that the storm would cause down trees, blocked roads, power outages, flooding, and overall dangerous conditions.
