The mighty Hurricane Ian was a powerful Category 4 hurricane that made landfall near Naples, Florida in September 2022, causing extensive damage. The storm crossed Florida and weakened to a tropical storm before moving into Georgia. Hurricane Ian did not strike St. Petersburg as hard as it did in areas like Southwest Florida and Orlando. The city was spared some of the worst effects of the storm.

Hurricane Ian knocked down power lines and trees and damaged some homes and businesses in St. Petersburg. Now that the storm has passed through, St. Petersburg is still open for business. However, some parts of Florida were badly affected by the hurricane and needed time to rebuild.
