Photos: Here's what Ian looks like in South Carolina

A local resident walks in a flooded street as Hurricane Ian bears down on Charleston, S.C., on Sept. 30. Ian hit southwest Florida as a Category 4 storm before crossing over into the Atlantic and is now hitting South Carolina as a Category 1 storm near Charleston.

Ian has landed in South Carolina — the first landfall of a hurricane the state has seen in nearly six years. Ian, which was later downgraded to a post-tropical cyclone, brought heavy rain, high winds and flooding along the state's coast, causing damage in some areas.
