NBC Connecticut meteorologists continue to track Hurricane Ian. The system intensified back into hurricane status Thursday before hitting South Carolina Friday.
The storm has ripped apart piers and flooding streets after causing catastrophic damage in Florida, trapping thousands in their homes and leaving at least 21 people dead.
The system will start to break apart as it moves over land. Some of the precipitation from the system will pivot into Connecticut this weekend.
