President Joe Biden warned about the possibility of “substantial loss of life” from Hurricane Ian and pledged the full force of the federal government to help Florida recover from the storm, poised to rank among the costliest natural disasters in US history. 

“My message to the people of Florida and the country is at times like this, America comes together. We’re going to pull together as one team, as one America,” Biden said Thursday following a briefing at the Federal Emergency Management Agency’s headquarters in Washington.
