FORT MYERS, Fla. — Six months after Hurricane Ian made landfall in Southwest Florida, The City of Fort Myers hosted a nondenominational prayer event to honor the victims of the storm and the 149 lives lost.

The event took place at the Caloosa Sound Amphitheater in Downtown Fort Myers from 9 a.m. to 12 p.m.

"Let’s take this opportunity to raise our voices for the wellbeing of our entire community," the City said in a statement. "It does not matter what you believe in, at this moment let’s just believe in each other and cherish the fact that we get the chance to be here together."

Prayers were lead in both English and Spanish.
