ORLANDO, Fla. – While Seminole County has not enacted an official curfew, law enforcement officials are warning drivers to stay off the road as Hurricane Ian moves north and Central Florida feels its impact.

In a tweet, Seminole County officials said that residents should stay off the roads, especially after dark, but if motorists must travel, they should slow down and watch for intersections with traffic lights that are out.
This comes as Hurricane Ian weakened to a Category 3 hurricane Wednesday evening after it made landfall in southwest Florida as one of the most powerful storms ever recorded in the U.S.
