We did not lose the house, but lightning struck, and we lost an awful lot of it about 15 years ago,” Biden said in Florida, reporting on the work of the authorities to overcome the consequences of the collapsed the state of Hurricane Ian.
The President of the United States said he understands the victims of the hurricane. “We had somewhere to go, we had relatives nearby, not that everything was completely gone, but we know this feeling: where will I lay my head tonight, will the child be fine, will he be able to go to school, will insurance cover it We are working to answer all of these questions,” Biden said.
At least 100 people were reported to have died in Florida due to the hurricane. Four deaths were also reported in North Carolina, where the hurricane moved after hitting the coast of South Carolina on Friday.
