Meteorologists said that once Ian leaves western Cuba, the storm could reach north of Tampa Bay early Friday or turn northwest toward the Panhandle, Florida.

The Joe Biden administration declared a public health emergency for the state on Monday and said it was working with local officials to provide support.

Both Cuba and Florida have seen wetter, windier and more intense hurricanes in recent years, which some experts attribute to climate change.

There is also evidence that climate change is causing storms to travel more slowly, dumping more water in one place.
