Shocking photos show the extent of devastation left by Hurricane Ian as it raged across southwest portion of the state Sunday, bringing with it historic flooding and widespread power outages.

The stark before and after images show the extent of such flooding as the historic storm heads north to the central part of the state, causing nearby Virginia, Georgia, and North and South Carolina to issue their own state of emergencies.

Fort Myers was one worst battered by Ian, with apocalyptic photos showing homes decimated by its wrath as roads turned into rivers with the tsunami of floodwater.

Naples and nearby Sanibel Island were also rocked by the ‘historic’ hurricane, with images of the latter showing a beachside pool overwhelmed by water as the region saw winds in the excess of 155mph.

The images show the current, embattled state of the Sunshine State, with more than 1million out of power and forced to their home’s rooftops as water levels are still reported to be on the rise.

Shocking photos show the extent of devastation left by Hurricane Ian as it raged across southwest portion of the state Sunday, bringing with it historic flooding and widespread power outages. Pictured is flooding seen at a Sanibel Harbor Resort this morning

A before image shows a pool and several houses near Estero Blvd in Fort Myers before the storm rocked the city.

Photos show the pool was already submerged by noon Wednesday, in a coastal portion of the city known as Estero Island.

A few hours later, levels rose even further, leaving several houses almost entirely submerged, with none of the pool and its gate visible.

Water levels in Fort Myers are still extremely high more than five hours after the hurricane – which was downgraded to a Category 3 storm Wednesday evening – made landfall.

Strong winds on the backside of the hurricane are pushing the surge onshore, keeping normally dry land flooded.

According to the NOAA tide gauge, the water level has only dropped about eight inches in the past two hours, after rising more than eight feet as the storm made landfall.
