ARCADIA, Fla. – Some members of the Florida Highway Patrol took a moment off from Hurricane Ian relief efforts to play basketball with residents of Arcadia, in west-central Florida.
The Florida Department of Highway Safety and Motor Vehicles (FLHSMV) posted the footage to Twitter, which shows four highway patrol troopers playing a game of basketball with four youths in Arcadia.
The FLHSMV said that “hundreds of troopers continue to work around the clock to support communities recovering from Hurricane Ian.”
Ian – with a death toll over 100 – was the deadliest storm to hit the state of Florida since the Labor Day hurricane of 1935, which killed more than 400 people, according to the National Hurricane Center.
