It’s official. Tropical Storm Ian has been upgraded to Hurricane Ian as Florida residents prepare for the storm, which is currently projected to hit the west coast of the state.
A hurricane warning was in effect for Grand Cayman and the Cuban provinces of Isla de Juventud, Pinar del Rio and Artemisa. The U.S. National Hurricane Center said Ian should reach the far-western part of Cuba late Monday or early Tuesday, hitting near the country’s most famed tobacco fields. It could become a major hurricane on Tuesday.
