Hurricane Ian has already left behind considerable scenes of damage in Cuba, and Florida braced Wednesday for similar impacts as the storm approached landfall.
Already, reports of widespread power outages have trickled in and several areas have pulled their first responders off the roads as conditions have turned more dangerous.
Officials are warning those who chose not to evacuate to shelter in place and stay indoors, with strong winds and significant storm surge expected up and down the Florida Gulf Coast.
