A southwest Florida county has ordered mandatory evacuations as Hurricane Ian hurdles toward the state. 

Local officials in Lee County declared a state of local emergency and issued the evacuation orders Tuesday, a day after local government ordered evacuations for the Tampa area on the Gulf Coast. 

The new orders impact the low-lying, flood-prone areas along the coast in the county, according to officials at a press conference Tuesday.
