FORT MYERS, Fla. (AP) – Days after Hurricane Ian carved a path of destruction from Florida to the Carolinas, the dangers persisted, and even worsened in some places.

It was clear the road to recovery from the monster storm will be long and painful. Search and rescue efforts are ongoing Monday.

And Ian still is not done. The storm doused Virginia with rain Sunday.

It was dissipating as it moved offshore, but officials warned there still was the potential of severe flooding along Virginia’s coast and a coastal flood warning was in effect Monday.

Ian was one of the strongest storms to make landfall in the United States.
