Tampa Bay Area Braces for Storm Not Seen in a Century

From an AP story by Curt Anderson headlined “Vulnerable Tampa Bay braces for storm not seen in a century”:

It’s been more than a century since a major storm like Hurricane Ian has struck the Tampa Bay area, which blossomed from a few hundred thousand people in 1921 to more than 3 million today.

Many of these people live in low-lying neighborhoods that are highly susceptible to storm surge and flooding they have rarely before experienced, which some experts say could be worsened by the effects of climate change.
