Hurricane Ian: Emergency Toolkit

IAM141 EAP
28 September 2022

Florida’s airports are being hammered with sustained winds of over 150 mph from Ian, which is on the cusp of becoming a Category 5 Hurricane. A hurricane of this magnitude passing over an area as heavily-populated as Ian represents a catastrophic event for the United States.

The monstrous storm is expected to cut a swathe towards Orlando tonight. The system has already wrought devastation on Florida’s southwest coast over Sanibel Island and Captiva Islands, where it made landfall this afternoon. It will significantly impact every airport in the region, including FLL, MCO, MIA, and TPA, among many others.

If you have loved ones in any part of the state, they may find themselves without power or reliable internet access over the next few days. We have compiled a list of emergency contact information that could be helpful to those affected by this storm. This information should be kept on hand, even by those outside the state, in case friends and family inside Florida reach out for contact.

We stand in Solidarity with our sisters and brothers in Florida.
