The NWS Warns Residents Ahead Of Hurricane Ian: ‘If you can leave, just leave now’

In areas that aren't accustomed to being directly slammed by a hurricane, Hurricane Ian is threatening deadly storm surges and forcing immediate evacuations because it heads near Florida.

An update from the Miami-based National Hurricane Center at 5 p.m. ET indicates that Ian is now a Category 4 hurricane consistent with the Saffir-Simpson scale. In keeping with the center, Ian travels north-northwest at around 13 mph and has its eye about 150 miles southeast of the western point of Cuba.

A hurricane could theoretically impact Florida on Wednesday, but Florida might begin to feel Ian's wrath as early as Tuesday.

The storm conditions are "projected to constitute a severe disaster," according to Florida Governor Ron DeSantis, who has proclaimed a "state of emergency" for the whole state.

The National Hurricane Center encouraged the residents of Cuba, the Florida Keys, and the Florida Peninsula to prepare a hurricane plan and closely monitor forecast updates.

The forecast for Ian from the hurricane center, per CNN meteorologist Brandon Miller, "has demonstrated an unprecedented rate of strengthening from a tropical storm to major hurricane."

The National Weather Service shared on Twitter that Ian is predicted to be a significant hurricane within the eastern Gulf of Mexico by the middle of the week. No matter Ian's exact course, the geographical area and Panhandle of Florida could experience a potentially fatal storm surge, hurricane-force winds, and significant rainfall by midweek.

More than 15 million people within the US are anticipated to experience gusts of at least a minimum of tropical storm strength in areas including Tampa, Orlando, Tallahassee, and Jacksonville, per Miller.

According to the foremost recent alert, a storm surge warning has been added for parts of western Florida where a 5 to 10-foot surge is feasible. Additionally, the bay is included in the "life-threatening inundation" alert from Anclote River to Flamingo within the south.

According to the foremost recent hurricane center advisory, the hurricane watch from Englewood to the Anclote River, encompassing the bay, has been raised to a hurricane warning. It means that "hurricane conditions are forecast somewhere inside the warning region, during this case, within 24 to 36 hours."

Even though the projection models indicate a large sort of potential routes, one concern is obvious: the Tampa area, on the western coast of Florida, may experience its first direct hurricane impact since 1921, which may be disastrous.

The last major hurricane to form an instantaneous hit was 100 years ago, in keeping with Rick Davis, a meteorologist with the Tampa branch of the National Weather Service. Many people in Florida have been full of hurricanes over the past five to 10 years.

Castor reported 49 available shelters, some of which welcome dogs who can serve people with specific requirements.
