As Hurricane Ian loses power over central Florida, the National Hurricane Center has downgraded it to Tropical Storm Ian.
Ian made landfall yesterday at Cayo Costa, Florida, as a Category 4 hurricane with 150 mph winds. It has since dropped back down through lower hurricane categories to a tropical storm with sustained winds of 65 mph.
Ian could be upgraded to a hurricane again as it regains power over the Atlantic Ocean before turning back to land. For now, it is projected to remain a tropical storm, and be downgraded to a tropical depression before dispersing over the Carolinas.
