As Hurricane Ian left the shores of Florida and pushed further north, Governor Ron DeSantis warned potential looters to stay out of hurricane victims’ homes.
“We want to make sure we are maintaining law and order. Don’t even think about looting, don’t even think about taking advantage of people in this vulnerable situation. Local law enforcement is involved and monitoring that…”
DeSantis mentioned criminals may be using boats to access islands in order to ransack homes vulnerable to thieves.
“…you have people bringing boats into some of these islands and trying to ransack people’s homes…
The governor finished with a stark warning to criminal elements who would try to take advantage of the chaos:
“I can tell you, in the state of Florida, you never know what may be lurking behind somebody’s home. I would not want to chance that if I were you, given we are a Second Amendment state.”
Governor DeSantis led efforts in the state to prepare and respond to Hurricane Ian. As the path of the storm shifted course, DeSantis provided updates to the people of Florida.
The Biden administration also got involved in hurricane preparations, telling Florida residents to “get vaccinated” in preparation for Ian’s landfall, despite hurricanes not considering the vaccination status of a victim.
