Florida Gov. DeSantis extolls state efforts on Hurricane Ian recovery: ahead of schedule


Free Vulcan:
Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis said Friday that the ongoing recovery from Hurricane Ian, the category 4 storm that ripped through Florida in September 2022, is running ahead of schedule.

DeSantis talked about what had been achieved by state and local agencies.

"We always said really from the beginning, when you have a storm of this magnitude, this is a long-term process." DeSantis said.

The Sanibel Causeway, which was wiped out by the storm, was repaired and up and running within two weeks, after it was previously thought that the bridge would take at least several months to repair.

"We were proud to get ahead of things with having over 42 linemen staged to get the power back on, when we had issues in Lee (County) we surged linemen from other companies to help with the electrical co-op here." DeSantis said.
