Hurricane Ian headed toward South Carolina Friday morning after making landfall in southwest and central Florida, leaving catastrophic damage in its wake.

The National Hurricane Center said Ian, which has regained hurricane status after a brief spell as a tropical storm, could bring “life-threatening storm surge” and hurricane-like conditions to the Carolina coast, along with “flooding rain” in South and North Carolina and southern Virginia. . He issued a hurricane warning for the entire South Carolina coast.

According to the hurricane center, on Friday morning, Ian already hit most of the coast of South and North Carolina as a tropical storm.
