Man in Manatee County loses boat to Hurricane Ian

Hurricane Ian dropped at least a foot of rain across a wide area as it crossed the Florida peninsula Wednesday. Radar-estimated rainfall totals show Sarasota County was hardest hit with almost 20 inches of rain. The swath of heaviest rain extended northeast into DeSoto, Manatee, Hardee and Polk counties — a general 10-16 inches. All of this rain in a small area must go somewhere, and that's to area rivers. Flash flood warnings have been issued for these areas and central Florida, with river reports from the National Weather Service showing many already breaking into major flood stage levels.
