Hurricane Ian continues to approach Cuba.  The 11 AM advisory showed Collier County right outside the cone for now, this does NOT mean we are in the clear.  Hazardous conditions can occur outside of the cone.  Do not dismiss this storm as not being able to change, shift or impact us.  Stay alert and stay prepared.
