Death toll from Hurricane Ian expected to rise; PEI schools re-open amid Fiona recovery

Search crews are expecting to find more bodies, as they work their way through central Florida.

So far, 81 deaths in the state are being attributed to Hurricane Ian, which slammed into the region last Wednesday as a catastrophic Category Four storm.

Water levels in many areas are continuing to rise, as the massive rainfall from the storm now makes its way down the river systems.

U-S President Joe Biden is planning to visit the state on Wednesday.
