All Eyes On Ian ~
Officials in Charlotte, Sarasota and DeSoto counties are continuing to monitor Hurricane Ian and the path which is expected to impact Florida. As of Saturday, the system has taken a more western turn. Authorities have made no announcements in regards to school closings and shelter openings.
Locally, shoppers are emptying store shelves of water and essential goods. Lines at gas stations are already causing a run on fuel causing some shortages. Flashlights, lanterns, tarp, bungee cords and batteries are in high demand.
