UAE nationals in Florida have been transported to Washington DC after Tropical Storm turned into a powerful hurricane threatening the US coast.

The UAE Embassy in Washington DC said the evacuation plan transported 141 Emiratis out of Florida.

Due to the difficulty of finding commercial flights to Washington DC, the Embassy's Emergency and Crisis Committee also chartered flights for the evacuation of some UAE nationals. 

The Embassy also called on UAE citizens in Florida to exercise caution as Hurricane Ian approaches and to follow safety instructions issued by the local authorities, and contact the Embassy in case of emergency at 0012024315530.
