'Extremely dangerous'

  On the afternoon of the 28th Eastern Time, "Ian" made landfall as a Category 4 hurricane west of Fort Myers, Florida, near Cayo Costa Island, with maximum sustained winds approaching 150 miles per hour.

  "'Ian' is extremely dangerous," the National Hurricane Center said in a statement.

CNN pointed out that Hurricane "Ian", like "Charley" in 2004, became the strongest storm to make landfall on the west coast of the Florida peninsula.

  More than 2 million people were ordered or urged to evacuate ahead of Ian's arrival.

Residents also snapped up supplies and blocked windows with planks or fled to evacuation shelters.

  NASA closed the visitor center at the Kennedy Space Center on Florida's east coast and moved its lunar rocket and Orion capsule from the launch pad to the Vehicle Assembly Building, again delaying the test flight.

Widespread blackout

  Data show that as of 18:00 local time on the 28th, more than 1.3 million users in Florida, USA, were out of power due to Hurricane "Ian".

Florida Power and Light (FPL) activated its emergency plan, which included mobilizing large numbers of people to support power restoration efforts, pre-positioning critical equipment and supplies, and coordinating with county and state emergency operations centers.

  Many airlines, airports and the federal government are preparing for a major blow to aviation infrastructure from the hurricane.

On the Florida peninsula, more and more airports were closed and flights were canceled.

  Videos posted on social media also show flooding from Hurricane Ian that has flooded some homes, streets and vehicles in the coastal town of Fort Myers, Florida.
