Hurricane Ian

Just days after Fiona battered Puerto Rico, Hurricane Ian is gathering strength as it approaches Florida as an extremely dangerous Category 4 hurricane, just 2 mph short of Category 5 status. The storm is expected to cause life-threatening storm surges, catastrophic winds, and flooding in the Florida peninsula. Hurricane Ian is forecast to approach the west coast of Florida on Wednesday night and Thursday morning. Gusts of 190 mph are predicted when the storm makes landfall.
