Hurricane Ian rapidly intensifying as it heads toward Cuba and Florida
Hurricane Ian barrels towards western Cuba. Then, it’s on track to make landfall in Florida, just north of Tampa Bay.

“Hurricane Ian is rapidly intensifying as it barrels towards western Cuba, then later, Florida, just north of Tampa Bay. Cuba is expecting life-threatening storm surges and hurricane-force winds Monday night.

The storm may slow slightly as it tracks through the Gulf of Mexico — however this is not necessarily good news — as a slower storm has the potential to make flooding worse on the Gulf Coast of Florida.

Major hurricanes hitting the Tampa Bay region directly, are fairly rare. In fact, only five major hurricanes have tracked within 50 miles of the area since 1851.”
