COLLIER COUNTY, Fla. — Collier County officials are monitoring Tropical Storm Ian as it moves toward Florida.

Hurricane hazards include storm surges, heavy rainfall, inland flooding, high winds, tornadoes, and rip currents.

WATCH NOW: Saturday, September 24, 2022

Officials are asking for help, they say it's essential that your family be ready before a storm approaches and that you have a 72-Hour Disaster Survival Kit prepared. Remember, the first 72 are up to you! Stronger category storms may require you to have a 5-7-day kit.

Collier County encourages all residents to sign up for Alert Collier, the County's mass notification system. When you sign up with Alert Collier, you can enter up to five addresses within the County boundaries that you would like to receive emergency alerts. For example, enter your home, work, relative, school, or other meaningful address. Then, you will receive a notification if an alert is issued for that location.

Register at or call 3-1-1 within Collier County.
