image for DeSantis Praises Biden as Florida Gov. Changes Tone Before Hurricane Ian

Florida Governor Ron DeSantis has expressed his gratitude towards President Joe Biden for his co-operation as Hurricane Ian is due to hit the state.

Speaking to Fox News' Sean Hannity Tuesday night, DeSantis said he is "very thankful" to Biden while discussing a phone call the pair had about preparations for Hurricane Ian, including the government providing federal assistance.

Biden previously confirmed he already spoken to three Florida mayors on Tuesday as Ian approached the state but seemed to wait until hours later to speak with DeSantis.

When Hannity asked about the call with Biden, DeSantis said: "What I said today is my phone line is open when people's lives and their property are at risk like this.

In a tweet, White House press secretary Karine Jean-Pierre confirmed the Tuesday phone call between Biden and the Florida governor.

"President Biden spoke this evening with Governor DeSantis of Florida to discuss the steps the federal government is taking to help Florida prepare for Hurricane Ian," Jean-Pierre said.

Also on Tuesday night, DeSantis warned south-west Florida residents to leave their homes if there are in an evacuation zone "now," as Hurricane Ian approached, bringing the possibility of gale force winds and flooding. »
