Measuring Hurricane Ian’s toll on Florida’s ‘forgotten’ neighborhoods

Betty and Hubert Toney have lost count of all the hurricanes they’ve lived through since moving into their house in the modest Dunbar neighborhood of Fort Myers, Florida, in 1958. The powerful Category 4 hurricane sheared the roof off the Toneys’ green flat-top home, leaving the interior exposed to the torrential rain. “I guess it really took a beating,” said Betty Toney, 81, of the house where she and Hubert raised their two children, as well as a dozen nieces and nephews.
