FLORIDA - Floridians scrambled to set up sandbags and stockpile emergency supplies on Monday as the state braced for Hurricane Ian, which was expected to bring damaging winds, torrential rains and powerful storm surge later in the week.

Jose Lugo, who lives in Orange County in the central part of the state, told CNN affiliate WFTV 9 that he made several trips over the weekend to fill up sandbags at a local park for family members.The intensifying storm was about 90 miles southwest of Grand Cayman on Monday morning, churning northwest in the Caribbean Sea at 14 miles an hour.

From there, Ian could either make landfall north of Tampa Bay early on Friday or turn northwest toward Florida's Panhandle. "People in Florida should start preparing for this storm now. The sooner the better," said Oravec."Especially in the Keys and the west coast. In the Keys, there's only one way in or out, if there's an evacuation."
