Florida se prepara para el Huracán Idalia

By Jordi Bou

August 29, 2023 - Se pronostica que Idalia se fortalecerá hasta convertirse en un gran huracán que podría azotar a Florida con oleadas e inundaciones potencialmente letales.

Idalia is expected to gain hurricane force before making landfall in Big Bend, Florida, on Wednesday, the National Hurricane Center (NHC) said.

A state of emergency was issued in 46 counties, a broad swath that stretches across the northern half of the state from the Gulf Coast to the Atlantic Coast, as residents loaded up on sandbags and evacuated from homes in low-lying areas along the Gulf Coast.

Idalia would mark the fourth major hurricane to strike Florida over the past seven years, following Irma in 2017, Michael in 2018 and Ian last September.
