Instead of evacuating, some Floridians
hunkered down and planned to wait out Hurricane Ian.
Such is the case for a woman named Beth, who began posting video footage of Hurricane Ian on her TikTok page
. A video of her floating in a blow-up pool due to flooding in her home has gone viral. A surreal look into the lives of people who have stayed behind to protect their homes.
Beth then posted two more videos, the last of which includes her begging for someone to come help her. "I'm alive", she states matter of factly. "Someone needs to come help." Beth also states that she's still floating in water. The footage is a chilling reminder of the real people affected by hurricanes of this magnitude.
