Hurricane Ian brings more Florida storm surge, sets sights on Carolinas

Hurricane Ian's impacts were far from over on Friday, as the storm moved from Florida toward the Carolinas. It was expected to bring more flooding and storm surge.

Hurricane Ian has its sights set on the Carolinas. 

After restrengthening into a Category 1 storm, the hurricane is expected to bring life-threatening storm surge and hurricane conditions to the region by the afternoon.

The National Hurricane Center said landfall was expected by that time.

Early Friday, the Category 1 storm was located about 145 miles south-southeast of Charleston, South Carolina.

Maximum sustained winds were reported at 85 miles per hour, with higher gusts.

Hurricane-force winds extend outward up to 70 miles from the center and tropical-storm-force winds extend outward up to 485 miles. 

Hurricane Ian was moving toward the north-northeast near 9 mph and a turn to the north is expected Friday morning.

Fox Weather said a two-foot storm surge was being reported in Jacksonville, Florida, with additional impacts in other parts of northeastern Florida.

The hurricane center warned that life-threatening storm surge would lash the coasts of that part of Florida, Georgia and the Carolinas within storm surge warning areas, and hurricane-force winds are expected along the South Carolina and southeastern North Carolina coasts within the hurricane warning area by the afternoon.

FOX WEATHER: WHERE IS IAN HEADED NEXT? DANGEROUS STORM'S IMPACTS WILL BE WIDESPREAD 

Hurricane conditions were possible in North Carolina's hurricane watch area by the afternoon.

Flooding rains are likely across the Carolinas and southern Virginia, and ongoing major to record river flooding will continue across central Florida through next week. 

The center of the hurricane will approach and reach the coast of South Carolina on Friday and then shift farther inland across eastern South Carolina and central North Carolina on Friday night and on Saturday.

Little change in strength is expected before it reaches the coast and rapid weakening is projected following landfall.

The hurricane is forecast to become an extratropical low over North Carolina on Friday night or on Saturday. The low is then expected to dissipate by Saturday night.

At least 10 fatalities have been confirmed by Florida officials thus far.
