Members of mediccorps.org search a home in Pine Island, Fla., whose resident was known to have stayed behind when Hurricane Ian bore down on Florida but has not been heard from since, Saturday, Oct. 1, 2022. Paramedics and volunteers with mediccorps.org arrived on the island with two helicopters as the only bridge to get there was heavily damaged so access is limited to boat or air.

  • Dozens of Venezuelan migrants in New York City are taking vans to Florida to help clean up the aftermath left behind by Hurricane Ian.
  • The migrants told the New York Post that they were offered payment to head to the Sunshine state over the weekend. However, they said they had very little information about who they would be working for.
  • “They want us for hurricane cleanup, we’d get paid $15 an hour, overtime, and $15 for food daily, I think,” said Javier Moreno, 37, who signed up after a woman named Camila approached him with a flier.
