Hurricane Ian continues to intensify as it approaches the Cayman Islands

Posted: Monday, September 26, 2022. 2:20 pm CST.

By Zoila Palma Gonzalez: Hurricane Ian is expected to continue to intensify as it approaches the Cayman Islands.

Hurricane Ian is located about 120 miles West North-west of Grand Cayman.

 On the forecast track, the center of Ian is expected to move near or over western Cuba tonight and early Tuesday.

Ian will then emerge over the southeastern Gulf of Mexico on Tuesday, passing west of the Florida Keys late Tuesday, and approach the west coast of Florida on Wednesday into Thursday.

Maximum sustained winds have increased to near 85 mph (135 km/h) with higher gusts.

Ian is forecast to become a major hurricane tonight or early Tuesday when it is near western Cuba and remain a major hurricane over the southeastern Gulf of Mexico on Wednesday.

Storm surge could raise water levels by as much as 2 to 4 feet above normal tide levels along the immediate coast in areas of onshore winds in the Cayman Islands today.

Tropical storm conditions are expected on Grand Cayman during the next few hours.

Hurricane conditions are expected within the warning area in Cuba tonight, with tropical storm conditions expected by this evening.

Destructive winds are possible where the core of Ian moves across western Cuba.
