Indiana Task Force 1 has almost made it to Florida.
After leaving Tuesday, the team is approaching the state to help respond to Hurricane Ian. They will be setting up in Lake City for the time being.
Task Force Leader, Gerald George, said the best-case scenario would be that they aren’t needed because the damage is lighter than expected. However, he said the task force is ready to jump into action to help search for missing people, check on residents, connect people with necessary resources, and more.
George said deployments usually last 10 to 14 days, depending on the situation and the needs of the community.
Hurricane Ian is currently a Category 4 hurricane. The National Weather Service posted an alert that “life-threatening and devastating impacts are expected.”
