Many South Florida schools are closed through Thursday as Hurricane Ian is set to bring heavy wind and rain to the area before making landfall on the state's west coast. What's happening: Hurricane Ian rapidly intensified to a Category 3 Tuesday, with a further ramp-up to Category 4 forecast through tonight and "catastrophic" winds and storm surge headed for the Florida peninsula, per the National Hurricane Center. Miami-Dade and Broward counties have been placed under a tropical storm warning, meaning our area is expected to experience winds of 39-73 mph.
