    No need to panic yet. After years of dealing with this type of weather. Ian will change a few more times before anything will happen. It was reported on the news tonight that the span of Ian has gotten smaller. Therefore I believe we will get rain and wind from the out skirts of Ian. Most likely no more that a torrential afternoon down pours of rain like we had a few weeks ago almost every day for like a week. JMO
