USA: Florida faces disaster. Tropical Storm Ian is strengthening. A state of emergency was declared

“This storm has the potential to become a major hurricane and we urge all Florida residents to prepare,” Florida Governor Ron DeSantis said in a statement. He said “activities with all state and local government service partners” are being coordinated to respond quickly to the potential effects of the storm.

State of emergency: Flooding may occur

It is not yet clear whether Ion will become a problem only for South Florida or if it will make it deeper into the state. Experts from the National Hurricane Center predicted that Ian would gain strength before reaching the northern coast of Cuba. It will hit the coast of Cuba as a hurricane on Monday. It will hit Florida later, most likely on Tuesday.

“It’s too early to say for sure whether this is a southeast Florida problem or whether the disaster will affect central Florida or the entire state,” said John Cangialosi, senior hurricane specialist at the National Hurricane Center in Miami.

“Flooding and surging of streams and rivers in northern Florida and southeast and central Florida cannot be ruled out,” the NHC wrote.

Queues in shops. National Guard on standby

People are already preparing for disaster. In Pinellas Park near Tampa, people waited in line at Home Depot from 5:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. 6 am. By noon the store had sold 600 boxes of water and the generator boxes were sold out.

People bought plywood so they could protect it with windows. Pinellas Park’s Matt Beaver said in an interview with a Tampa Bay Times reporter, “It’s better to have and not want than to want and not have.”

The White House announced Saturday night that President Biden has approved a federal emergency for the state that authorizes the Department of Homeland Security and the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) to coordinate disaster recovery and relief efforts to save lives and property.

The law also indicates an alert status for the Florida National Guard.

Super typhoon of Noru. Expulsion of Residents of the Philippines

Wind speed from Saturday is 120 to 185 kmph. It is already known that it will continue to grow, and on Sunday evening, when it hits the coast of Luzon (the largest island of the Philippines), it may reach 205 km/h.

Officials expect landslides and flash floods in the affected areas. Schools and government offices are closed in the capital Manila and many other cities.
