Authorities and residents in Florida are keeping a close eye on Tropical Storm Ian as it moves ominously through the Caribbean on Sunday and is likely to become a powerful hurricane on its way to the Americas.

Florida Governor Ron DeSantis has declared a state of emergency for the entire state and urged residents to prepare for the storm, which will engulf large parts of the state, bringing heavy rain, strong winds and rising water levels. the sea

He said forecasters are not yet sure where Ian will make landfall, but models used to project movement show it could make landfall on Florida's west coast.

"We're going to continue to watch the trajectory of this storm, but it's really important to emphasize the degree of uncertainty that still exists," Gov. DeSantis said at a news conference Sunday, warning that "even if you're not necessarily in the epicenter of the storm's trajectory, there will be far-reaching consequences throughout the state."

The National Hurricane Center said the tropical storm is expected to intensify late Sunday or Monday morning and eventually become a powerful hurricane before making landfall in western Cuba.
