Across the most affected parts of the state, local and federal rescue crews continued to scour neighborhoods for survivors. “We are not in a recovery phrase,” said Chase Fabrizio, leader of Maryland Task Force 1, a search-and-rescue crew of the Federal Emergency Management Agency. “We are still in the search.”

Several bridges were destroyed, complicating rescue efforts. The causeway to Sanibel, a 12-mile barrier island, was rendered impassable, cutting off the island from the mainland.

President Biden and first lady Jill Biden are planning to travel to Puerto Rico on Monday and to Florida on Wednesday to see the extent of the hurricane damage, the White House announced late Saturday.

Their visit comes as the president warned that Ian could be Florida’s deadliest hurricane. The confirmed death toll is expected to rise as autopsies are completed and recovery efforts continue.
