Hurricane Idalia Approaching Florida: Prepare for Dangerous Winds and Life-Threatening Storm Surge

Hurricane Idalia is expected to intensify significantly as it approaches the Florida coast. Authorities have already urged people to evacuate, closed schools, and issued a pre-landfall closure for a major airport on the Gulf coast ahead of Wednesday.

According to the National Hurricane Center and its Tallahassee office, the densely populated Big Bend area is at risk.

The National Guard is on high alert, and evacuation is underway as Hurricane Florida could bring devastating havoc to parts of the Gulf Coast. It is expected to make landfall north of Tampa, though a slight shift in its track could pose further danger to this vulnerable population.
