Daytona Beach bears brunt from Hurricane Ian, photos and videos show

Pictures and videos from Hurricane Ian's aftermath show the devastating circumstances many people in Florida are now left with. Although Ian didn't make landfall in Daytona Beach, the community was greatly affected. 

Popular fishing pier — Sunglow pier — nearly collapsed as Ian bought high wind gusts and over 10 inches of rain to the coastal city.

One shopping plaza was nearly destroyed as some stores lost part of its roofs. What was once a café is now unrecognizable. Exposed wires were also left hanging from the ceiling.

A citywide curfew was placed under effect on Thursday at 8 p.m. until 7 a.m. Friday morning. Police pleaded with residents to stay off the roads.

A fleet of power company trucks were discharged Friday to help those without electricity.
