Hurricane Ian devastation in Florida seen from space (satellite photos)

Satellites revealed the extent of the devastation Hurricane Ian wreaked over Florida last week, but their images also show glimpses of recovery as they appear to be coming back where power has already been restored after widespread outages.

Hurricane Ian passed over Florida last week as a powerful Category 4 storm, causing severe flooding in coastal areas due to storm surge and torrential rain. The hurricane, which lashed the coast with damaging winds of more than 155 mph (250 km/h), has killed nearly 100 Florida residents, according to Florida today (opens in new tab) on Monday (October 3).
