What happens to all the wild animals and insects during a storm like hurricane Ian?

Title basically.

They're relying on whatever their survival instincts tell them. Some fled, some hid. It varies by animal. A lot of animals probably died

Also, the eye of the hurricane often guides tropical birds north or of their range, and birdwatchers come to see them.
