The timeliness of evacuation orders given in Lee County, which took the brunt of Hurricane Ian’s deaths for the state, was justified by Florida Governor Ron DeSantis. It was Tuesday evening, 21 hours before the devastating Category 4 superstorm made landfall on North Captiva Island, when the southwestern county that contains Fort Myers and Cape Coral advised coastal residents to leave their homes. According to CNN, at least 35 county residents were confirmed deceased, which accounts for more than half of the 66 fatalities recorded in Florida by Sunday morning.

In the runoff, Mr. da Silva, the leader of the Workers’ Party, will face Mr. Bolsonaro, a rule-slashing firebrand who has been compared to Donald Trump in Brazil.
