Hurricane Ian has made landfall on Florida’s Gulf coast, pummeling the shore with 150mph winds, sparking catastrophic flooding and knocking out power for thousands of homes.
The first impact came in Cayo Costa, around 100 miles south of Tampa, the National Hurricane Centre reported.
In nearby Fort Myers, dramatic photographs and videos showed houses already underwater and cars floating down the streets.
In Naples, further to the South, lashing winds downed power transformers which exploded as they hit the ground and sparked small fires.
Already, one million people are without power.
The category four hurricane - which is just 2mph shy of being a category five - is anticipated to be particularly devastating because of a deadly combination of wind speed, rainfall and storm surge.
Gusts of up to 190mph are likely to down trees and spread debris over a large area.
Catastrophic storm surges could push 12 to 18 feet (3.6 to 5.5 metres) of water across more than 250 miles of coastline. Adding to the misery, as much as 24 inches of rainfall is expected in the next 48 hours.

Hurricane Ian made landfall near Cayo Costa off the Florida coast as a Category 4 storm Tuesday, according to the National Hurricane Center. The storm's center is expected to move across central Florida on Wednesday night, emerging over the Atlantic on Thursday. Ian is forecast to turn northward on Friday and approach the northeastern Florida, Georgia and South Carolina coasts.
Ian is now a Category 3 hurricane with sustained winds near 115 mph with higher gusts. Hurricane-force winds are present 50 miles from the eye and tropical-storm-force winds extend another 125 miles. The storm is expected to weaken but, could return to hurricane strength as it approaches the Florida's east coast.
Ian has brought life-threatening storm surge, flooding, heavy rain, hurricane-force winds, and tornadoes to southwest Florida. Continued heavy rainfall is expected to bring flash, urban, river, and small stream flooding to central Florida, southern Georgia, and the South Carolina coast, well beyond the hurricane's path.
Storm surge flooding is the one of the greatest threats to life and property during a hurricane, and one of the leading causes of…
