This Evening Hurricane lan became a Category 2 hurricane this afternoon and continues to strengthen into a major hurricane. Its track has become more easterly, and Tropical-storm-force winds may begin in Central Florida as soon as Wednesday night. Regardless of the exact path, there is a significant risk of life-threatening storm surges, hurricane-force winds, and heavy rainfall along the west coast of Florida, the Florida Panhandle, and throughout the state's central portion.
