Hurricane Ian History
Hurricane Ian continues to strengthening after making landfall in Western Cuba, and advancing toward Florida. Two days later, the wave moved into the Caribbean Sea, where it brought winds and heavy rain to ABC islands, Trinidad and Tobago, and the northern coasts of Venezuela and Colombia; it then showed signs of development of a tropical depression later that day, as its convection increased and became more focused. Later it intensified into a hurricane as it neared the Cayman Islands, before rapidly intensifying to a Category 2 Hurricane North West of the Cayman Islands, then as a high-end Category 3 hurricane as it made landfall in western Cuba. Hurricane Ian weakened slightly over land in Cuba, but restrengthened once it moved off of Cuba in the southeastern Gulf of Mexico.
