The people of Florida are hunkered down as we speak, waiting out the harshest moments of Hurricane Ian.

The storm has grown in size and ferocity over the last several hours, picking up the warm waters of the Gulf of Mexico and converting that fuel into a supercharged monstrosity approaching category 5.

Florida Governor Ron DeSantis took to the airwaves on Wednesday to update his citizens regarding their preparation for potential power outages.

Gov. Ron DeSantis said in a Wednesday press briefing that the more than 200,000 power outages reported in the state of Florida were nothing more than a “a drop in the bucket for what’s going to happen” as Hurricane Ian makes landfall.

“There’s going to be widespread power outages, particularly in southwest Florida,” he explained, adding that more than 100 portable cell towers were ready to be deployed once it is safe to do so.

Tracker PowerOutage.US showed that there were more than 304,000 customers without power on Wednesday afternoon.

There are now more than 42,000 linemen and other personnel ready to restore power in 30 areas across the state.

Images from the historic storm were soon circulating online.

Florida officials are currently taking applications for volunteers to aid in the aftermath of the storm at www.VolunteerFlorida.org.
