One guy in florida

Going through Ian and shared footage of the storm on his phone mentioned chaos in the streets. Reporter asked what kinds of chaos?

The guy mentioned homeless people banging on doors looking for somewhere to be sheltered from the storm.

There was no further comment on this.

However there was a few minutes spent on the virtues of the new building technology and building codes and stay put shingles on houses in high end neighborhoods.


What a contrast.

There are rich people safe and possibly little to damage to thier home in a hurricaine while homeless people left on thier own try to seek shelter or die because they can't find any.

Chaos indeed,shit I feel bad for the homeless in Ian's path.

3. I lived in Fort Myers for almost 2 years. I worked at the community mental health clinic

Fort Myers is a tale of two cities. Lots of middle class folks and lots of extreme poverty and homeless. Iím thinking about all the patients I saw that were homeless or living in shelters. At the height of Covid, shelters were limiting the number of people. I donít know if that has changed. Furthermore, I doubt those shelters are safe. The ones I knew of, were ground level.
