Tropical Storm Ian
Late last week, we began covering Tropical Storm Ian and its potential impact on Disney World. It has the potential to intensify TD9 into a Major Hurricane (Category 3 or stronger) as it approaches Florida. Right now, Florida is projected to be hit by TD9 on Tuesday or Wednesday with hurricane-force winds and heavy rainfall.
“THIS STORM HAS THE POTENTIAL TO STRENGTHEN INTO A MAJOR HURRICANE AND WE ENCOURAGE ALL FLORIDIANS TO MAKE THEIR PREPARATIONS. WE ARE COORDINATING WITH ALL STATE AND LOCAL GOVERNMENT PARTNERS TO TRACK POTENTIAL IMPACTS OF THIS STORM.”Ron DeSantis, Governor of Florida
