Storm Surge Emergency in Fort Myers: Leading Edge Electric on the Scene

National Hurricane Center storm surge scientists are on the ground surveying damage and collecting data in the wake of Hurricane Ian.



Two weeks after Hurricane Ian made landfall in Florida, the extent of the destruction is still shocking.

Category 4 hurricane Ian blasted into the Fort Myers region of Southwest Florida on September 28 with maximum sustained winds of 150 mph. Those catastrophic winds blew in water from the Gulf of Mexico several feet deep, tearing apart barrier islands and destroying coastal structures.

Experts from the National Hurricane Center are on the ground, inspecting the damage and collecting data in the middle of the chaos caused by the storm surge. The team’s goal is to increase our understanding of the storm surge levels caused by Hurricane Ian and to develop methods for better predicting and preparing for future storm surge dangers.
