Hurricane Ian has strengthened to a Category 2 storm as it barrels toward Florida with a meteorologist at the National Weather Service saying it could be “something we haven’t seen in our lifetime.” The current forecast track has Ian heading toward the Tampa Bay region and officials are saying the area could see 10 to 15 inches of rain. CNN Meteorologist Tom Sater joins AC360 to give the latest on the storm’s track and how dangerous the storm surge could be.

Plus, a NASA spacecraft has successfully slammed into an asteroid called Dimorphos in hopes of changing the asteroid’s speed and path in space, a first test of a way of literally saving planet earth from extinction. Astrophysicist Neil deGrasse Tyson tells AC360 what NASA will do to determine if they successfully changed the asteroid’s direction.
