Heavy rain and tropical storms continue to hit parts of Florida. A hurricane warning has been issued for the entire South Carolina coast.

St. PETERSBURG, Fla. — Ian became a hurricane again Thursday night as it moved over the Atlantic. It left in its wake a catastrophic storm surge, winds and flooding on the Florida peninsula, National Hurricane Center said.

As of 8 p.m., Hurricane Ian was about 215 miles south of Charleston, South Carolina, moving north-northeast at 10 mph. Maximum wind speed is 75 mph.

The NHC expects Yang to turn north on Thursday evening and then turn to the north-northwest with increasing speed on Friday. The storm will approach the South Carolina coast on Friday, and the center will move further inland into the Carolinas later that night and into Saturday.

The storm may strengthen slightly before making landfall, but is also forecast to weaken quickly over the southeastern United States late Friday, the NHC said.

Ian initially made landfall as a Category 4 storm off Florida’s southwest coast near Cayo Costa around 3:05 p.m. Wednesday, the NHC said. Maximum winds reached 150 mph with gusts even higher.

On Wednesday at 4:35 p.m., Ian made a second landfall — on the mainland — south of Punta Gorda as a Category 4 storm with sustained winds of 145 mph.
