    The confirmed death toll from Hurricane Ian is expected to rise in Florida as people file reports of missing loved ones.

    Add in some gusty winds from the north and we are locked in for some dreary conditions.

    Some people in Florida were surprised and left unprepared by Hurricane Ian’s sudden shift south

    The heavier rain of last night moves off, but additional waves are likely into early week. Temperatures are quite cool, as well.

    Ian made its second landfall near Georgetown, S.C. as a Category 1 hurricane on Friday afternoon.

    Rain spreads over the area this evening and waves pass through tonight. It will be a bit more showery Saturday, but it will be wet through the weekend.

    Rain will then fall intermittently through early next week, with the heaviest Friday night. We should expect at least 1.5 to 3 inches.

    While Ian is not done impacting the United States, the storm’s strike on Florida already puts it in the record books.

    High clouds over the Mid-Atlantic ahead of Ian lit up in beautiful colors after the sun set.

    Periods of moderate to heavy rain are possible tonight. Flooding concerns are not widespread thanks to recent dry conditions.

    “We’ve never seen a flood event like this,” Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis said.

    In six years there have been six historic hurricanes in the continental United States, all which intensified quickly before making landfall. Climate change helped fuel them.

    Areas from northern Florida all the way up through New York City could see impacts from Ian, which has resumed strengthening.

    We're in the calm before the storm. Friday features cooler temperatures and rain by late in the day.

    Officials are urging people without electricity after Ian to use caution operating generators.

    At least 2 inches of rain is a good bet late Friday into early next week.

    Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis warned of catastrophic flooding as Hurricane Ian made landfall as a Category 4 storm on the Florida gulf coast.

    Clouds from the remnants of Ian start to fill our skies, but it's just high level for now.

    The nearly Category 5 hurricane will drop more than a foot of rain over Central Florida, which has already seen a lot of rainfall in recent weeks.
