Cote said the flash happened north from Indian Harbor Beach as weather conditions worsened nearby.

Ian made landfall along Florida’s southwest coast Wednesday afternoon as a Category 4 hurricane, though it has been steadily losing wind speed since storming over Florida. As of 11 p.m. Wednesday night, it was reduced to a Category 1 hurricane.

Brevard County was lashed by Ian’s outer bands Wednesday afternoon, though Ian has continued to bring strong rain and winds into Central Florida as it heads toward the Atlantic coast.
