Medical examiners have confirmed 137 deaths from Hurricane Ian, while at least five people died from Hurricane Nicole, according to information posted on the Florida Department of Law Enforcement website.
The number of Ian deaths has gradually increased since the Category 4 storm made landfall on Sept. 28 in Southwest Florida and crossed the state.
The total was at 134 last week.
A news release posted Wednesday on the FDLE website said Ian deaths have been reported in 19 counties, with Lee County accounting for 61 deaths.
Also, Collier and Sarasota counties have each had 10 confirmed deaths, while Charlotte County has had eight, and Monroe County and Volusia County have each had seven.
Nicole made landfall early Thursday near Vero Beach as a Category 1 storm and moved up the state as a tropical storm.
A news release posted Monday on the FDLE website said four Nicole-related deaths had been confirmed in Orange County, while one had been confirmed in Duval County.
