Hurricane Ian slams Cuba as a Category 3 storm, Florida braces for 'historic' storm surge

Today's storm tracking The latest forecasts for Hurricane Ian suggest the massive, powerful storm  ill make landfall in Florida's Sarasota County, farther south than previous predictions but still threatening devastation for much of the state, authorities said Tuesday.

Ian slammed into Cuba earlier Tuesday, a Category 3 monster pounding the island with 125-mph winds. Now approaching Florida, Ian's shift eastward has put the city of Venice in the storm’s crosshairs sometime Wednesday, although high winds and storm surge are still expected farther north into the previously targeted Tampa Bay region, state Emergency Management Director Kevin Guthrie said.

Hundreds of thousands of Floridians faced mandatory evacuation orders as the National Hurricane Center expanded the hurricane warning along more than 150 miles of the state's Gulf Coast. Power outages can be expected statewide, Florida Power & Light warned.
