Florida zet zich schrap voor orkaan Ian

September 27, 2022 - Hurricane Ian is expected to strengthen after making landfall in western Cuba and emerging over the Gulf of Mexico, reaching Category 4 strength before it approaches western Florida, forecasters said.

Ian made landfall in Cuba’s Pinar del Rio province early on Tuesday, prompting officials to cut power to the entire province and evacuate 40,000 people from low-lying coastal areas, according to Reuters.

The storm’s path toward Florida forced the U.S. space agency NASA to roll its giant Artemis 1 moon rocket off its Cape Canaveral lauchpad after postponing the much-anticipated mission a third time, Reuters said.
