The New York Times reported after the storm touched down, some areas of Fort Meyers were under “three to four feet of water, and the city is responding to fires, extensive flooding and life-threatening conditions.”

On Thursday it was reported that the hurricane was downgraded to a a tropical storm as of 5 a.m.

President Joe Biden spoke with Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis (R) on Thursday morning as the hurricane passed through the state.

“The President told the Governor he is sending his FEMA Administrator to Florida tomorrow to check in on response efforts and see where additional support is needed. The President and Governor committed to continued close coordination,” White House press secretary Karine Jean-Pierre said.

DeSantis told reporters the “amount of water that’s been rising…is basically a 500-year flood event.”

According to the White House’s disaster declaration, damage assessments are ongoing in other areas of Florida and “additional areas may be designated for assistance after the assessments are fully completed.”
