#Ian 's eyewall now moving ashore... landfall within the next hour or 2. My thoughts go out to those with friends, family, or property in SW Florida. Hopefully everyone in the evacuation zones made it out in time.

I was shocked when I saw this update. #Ian on the cusp of a category 5 landfall in the United States now, only 4 in previous US history in '35, '69, '92, and '18. We may be adding 2022 to that list today.

09/28/2022

Category 4 hurricane Ian approaching landfall this morning between Ft. Myers and Port Charlotte in SW Florida. Winds are at 140mph, but #Ian likely strengthens even more before landfall. 145 or 150mph not out of the question, worst case scenario for such a large storm. #mewx

The eye of #IAN is visible from the Key West radar as it's still over Cuba. Still very well defined, not much indication of weakening from being over Cuba. The eye is around 25-30 miles across. #mewx

Feels SO GOOD to be back with the Good Day Maine team after two weeks off!! Meteorologist Christian Bridges Jeff Peterson
I tried my best to keep it together.... My last day here at WGME was spent on the anchor desk with Meteorologist Christian Bridges! I can't say it enough. I'm so grateful for my time here at WGME. I've had the privilege to live out my dream of being a journalist and working in TV for the last 7 years and it's been just so incredible to have spent 4 of them here in Maine. While I'm saying goodbye to TV news, I'll still be in Maine! With a lot more flexibility to spend time with family and friends. Again, thank you so much.
