Objectivity 4.7 | Credibility 4.7 | Relevance 4.8

As a major storm like Hurricane Ian has not hit the Tampa Bay area in more than a century, most people are highly vulnerable to flooding and storm surge, mainly because they live in low-lying neighborhoods. “Clearly, when you look at the Tampa Bay area, one of the reasons why we fear storms is because of the sensitivity of this area and the fragility of this area” Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis said on Monday.
