The 5am update from Sunday morning shows Tropical Storm Ian is strengthening over Cuba. Currently the forecast shows Ian will be a major hurricane as it passes over West Cuba on Tuesday morning.

As of now the West coast of Florida is still in the cone of uncertainty. Remember tracks change so continue to prep for the worst and hope for the best.

Tampa Bay residents should take advantage of the nice weekend weather while it’s still here. Now is a perfect time to take some precautions to prepare for the high winds, flooding and power outages that Ian could bring.
