As Hurricane Ian ploughed into Florida with catastrophic force leaving power out, forcing residents into a curfew and inundating streets with seawater, the state rapidly transformed into a disaster zone. Hurricane Ian hit Florida on Wednesday after pummeling Cuba on Tuesday and leaving the island nation without power for hours.

More than 2.5 million people have been ordered to evacuate ahead of the category four hurricane. As Hurricane Ian smashed Florida, the ocean was swept up submerging homes, businesses and streets.

In a video widely shared on social media, a shark was seen swept into the street in Fort Myers in Florida as heavy rainfall brought down trees and powerlines.
