Hurricane Ian Operations Advice for Central Florida

Since making landfall as a Category 3 storm in Cuba on Tuesday, Hurricane Ian is likely to be the fifth hardest hurricane to hit the US as it almost reached a Category 5 storm with winds at 150 mph.  Historically, only four Category 5 storms have made landfall in the U.S. with maximum sustained winds greater than 155 mph. Heavy, potentially flooding rain is expected to affect central Florida, southern Georgia, North Carolina, and the South Carolina coast with new tropical storm warnings issued for North and South Carolina.
