Hurricane Ian Is Expected to Make A Direct Path Over Orlando
Hurricane Ian is making landfall today along the Florida coast and is expected to bring category 1 conditions into the Orlando area. Lots of heavy rain and strong winds will be arriving today and into tomorrow. Mayor Buddy Dyer spoke on this dangerous storm and the precautions Orlando citizens need to take.
“I want citizens to take this storm seriously and prepare,” Mayor Dyer said at a news conference at the city’s Emergency Operation Center on Tuesday. “The track of the storm has changed fairly significantly to the east, so it looks like the path is directly over the city of Orlando in a few days.”

The heavy rains are expected to cause flooding which is one of the main concerns for the Orlando area.
“We can have rain for 48 hours through the course of this storm, so there’s going to be a lot of water,” he said. “This is going to be a serious storm and we haven’t had one recently so you know there’s a lot of trees that are going to lose limbs or come down.”
