The hurricane made landfall on the state’s Gulf Coast as a Category 4 storm on Sept. 28, stranding people across Southwest Florida. The governor declared a state of emergency and President Biden announced a major disaster declaration as the federal government began to help search-and-rescue efforts and aid people in recovering from the massive storm damage.

Hurricane Ian’s destructive run through Florida is the latest reminder that it is a good idea to have an emergency fund set up for events just like this. Experts advise having $1,000 to $2,000 in cash reserves for these kinds of emergencies.
