#Irma Threatens Florida – Stronger now than originally forecast at this point!

For the latest on Irma please stay connected to the NOAA NWS National Hurricane Center. As of now, Florida, especially Southern Florida, looks to be ground zero for this system, with maybe even a double hit or a Western Florida hit as she (if she) hooks to the north. She stayed south of many predictions which is why the Southeast Coast (Ga/SC/NC) is less likely to see a direct hit, though surf will be high! Regionally, Next Monday and Tuesday we will see how rains will come this way, but the system will have lost a lot of punch by then.

PRAY FOR FLORIDA, The Leeward Islands, and Puerto Rico as well as all that will be impacted! Irma is very strong and large and actually stronger right now than models had her at this point! 150mph winds! 

UPDATE: #Irma is now a Category 5 Storm with winds at 175mph as of 8:00 AM Tuesday, September 5, 2017
