Hurricane Ian death toll in US climbs to 30

The number of fatalities from Hurricane Ian rose to 30 in the United States after the powerful storm pummeled Florida and South Carolina, the AP reported, citing officials.

The officials said that 27 people who lost their lives were Floridians, noting that the number is expected to get higher. While many of the deaths attributed to drowning, two people died in a car crash, one from head injuries and two were found dead after experiencing a blackout that lead to their oxygen machines turning off.

On Friday, Ida made landfall in Florida as a powerful Category 4 hurricane.
