(ANSA) - WASHINGTON, 28 SEPTEMBER - The number of people left without electricity in southwestern Florida has risen to 1.5 million after the arrival of the devastating hurricane Ian, one of the most violent ever hit the US, with winds of 240 km / h.
American TVs broadcast apocalyptic images: houses destroyed or damaged, trees uprooted, cars submerged by floods, with the sea level rising up to 4 meters.
Some areas are still too dangerous to organize rescue operations.
Ian landed in Cayo Costa, near Fort Meyers.
Orlando is also on his way.
