As we all know by now, Hurricane Ian made landfall Wednesday afternoon as a powerful Category 4 storm, hitting the southwest coast of Florida at Cayo Costa near Fort Myers and Cape Coral. This devastating storm has caused loss of life, left 2.5 million Floridians without power and countless communities under water. Our thoughts and prayers are with all of those affected. As a business community we are uniting to ensure we can get Floridians and Florida communities and businesses through this and eventually back on their feet. In the aftermath of a natural disaster, Florida's business community always stands ready to support one another. Thank you to all of our partners who are on the front lines as well as those in communities not directly impacted who are helping other Florida communities when it is needed most.
