The Category 5 hurricane is expected to make landfall on September 28 afternoon somewhere in an area extending south of Fort Myers north of Sarasota, according to the National Hurricane Center.

"Life-threatening storm surge is increasingly likely along Florida's west coast, where a storm surge warning is in effect, with the highest risk from Naples to the Sarasota region," the hurricane center wrote late on Sept. 27. “Residents in these areas should heed the advice of local authorities and follow all orders to evacuate from your area.”
