Ian continues across Florida Makes Landfall As a Cat4
We continue to track as Hurricane Ian continues across Florida As a Category 4 Storm. Our chasers are safe, and in-route to pick Ian back up as a hurricane, again, somewhere around the North Charleston, South Carolina area. We’ll be reporting and live streaming a SECOND intercept of Ian. Our fallen hero, Surgie Cam-9 captured a phenomenal mesovortex as the eyewall of Ian was closing in on itself as it continued to weaken, eventually dwindling back to Tropical Storm status over most of central Florida on Thursday.
Landfall was reported by the National Hurricane Center to be located in the area of Cayo Costa Island, Florida. This was also the exact location Hurricane Charley, another Category 4 150MPH storm, made landfall on August 13, 2004.
Catastrophic flooding and extreme wind damage, mass power outages with more than two million people across Florida were without power, while some were trapped in flooded homes as Hurricane Ian Continues across Florida.
Now Tropical Storm Ian, is expected to restrengthen to a hurricane in the Atlantic before making a currently projected landfall with South Carolina in its track.
