Hurricane Ian made landfall in Florida Thursday afternoon with sustained wind speeds of 150 mph and several feet of storm surge. The damage left behind is catastrophic. Drone video shows the devastating damage left behind by the cat 4 storm.

Over the last few days, Ian continued its devastation as it moved throughout the southeast of the United States. The storm made ANOTHER landfall along the South Carolina coast near Georgetown, South Carolina with maximum sustained winds of 85 mph Friday afternoon. Now that the storm is on land, it has weakened considerably. As of Saturday morning, remnants of Ian have wind speeds of 35 mph. The storm is currently moving slowly to the north-northwest around 12 mph and will dissipate later today.


Satellite shows that the clouds associated with Ian, moved into the Buckeye State yesterday afternoon. It will remain mostly cloudy today from the outermost bands of Ian's remnants. This will also bring a few showers to the area. This is especially true for our southern and eastern communities. It could be a damp afternoon there, but most of the area will see limited rainfall, if any.

The more north and west you live, the less likely you will deal with rain. Rainfall totals will likely be very light for most of us. Up to a 0.25 of an inch is possible where it rains the most. Expected totals drop even more as you move north.


The weekend will certainly feel the impacts from Ian in other ways. Both Saturday and Sunday look BLUSTERY! Plan for gusty winds on Saturday and Sunday around 25-35 mph. There is also a small craft advisory in effect for the nearshore waters of Lake Erie. Waves of 3-6 feet will be possible through Monday morning.
