This week on Florida Matters, we check back in on hurricane recovery in our region. It's been two months since Hurricane Ian made landfall in Southwest Florida. The storm carved a destructive trail through the state and flooded communities in its path.WUSF's Cathy Carter has been reporting on how residents in Manatee and Sarasota counties are regrouping after Ian.One of the local landmarks undergoing reconstruction after the storm is the iconic, 95-year-old Venice Theatre. Carters says the venue won't fully reopen until 2024 because of costly repairs.
