Some were reported to have waited for at least "three hours" in the queues as some areas were under a mandatory evacuation. Footage from Apollo Beach, Sarasota and St. Petersburg show the extent of the traffic queues with unmoving lines stretching back for miles. One filmer said: "Waited 3 hours to get 10 sand bags. We’re under mandatory evacuation in Apollo Beach." Another tweeted: "All of us are exhausted already and it hasn't even begun." Hurricane Ian has been deemed a Category 1 hurricane and has already made landfall in the Cayman Islands and is expected to arrive this week after it made landfall in Cuba late on Monday. ENDS
