During his Angelus prayer on Sunday, Pope Francis expressed his solidarity with the people of Cuba and Florida, after they were hit by Hurricane Ian.
According to officials, the death toll in Florida has risen to at least 62 as the US coast guard continues to conduct search and rescue missions.
"I am close to the people of Cuba and Florida, hit by a violent hurricane. May the Lord welcome the victims, give comfort and hope to those who suffer, and sustain their commitment of solidarity."
