RALEIGH, N.C. (WTVD) -- Hurricane Ian continues to strengthen in the Atlantic and is expected to hit Florida and possibly parts of Central North Carolina later this week. The Triangle area could see rain from Ian as early as Thursday evening and Friday.

Event planners, area schools and colleges are already making decisions to keep people, players and staffers safe.

Some are moving or postponing events. Some have not yet made their decisions.
