  • Latest reports coming in suggest that Irma has now become a Tropical Storm. The USNHC downgraded the hurricane to a tropical storm but Irma is till producing blasts of wind with speeds of up to 70Mph. However, it has still warned for storm surges that could pose a risk to life. A flash flood warning is also in place for Jacksonville where record flooding was seen in the St. Johns river. Irma continues to batter Florida but is continuously losing its strength. The center of the storm is speculated to remain over Florida and then move to Alabama, Tennessee and Georgia.
  • Hurricane Irma is currently heading towards the Tampa Bay area. However, the storm has lost much of its strength. It was a category 4 storm when it first made landfall in Florida Keys; but, it has now been downgraded to category 1. Still, it is deadly and can bring storm surges. As per the US national hurricane centre, the storm can bring up to 4.5 meters of water flooding in the Tampa area. It is expected that Irma's center, which will stay inland over Florida, will next move into the states of Alabama, Tennessee and Georgia. By Monday, Irma will weaken into a tropical storm. It is estimated that currently, 3.3 million homes have no power in Florida. More power outages are expected. Still the full damage of the hurricane in the state has yet to be determined. The Miami International Airport will not operate till Tuesday. More details awaited.
  • There have been many recent development regarding Hurricane Irma, the super-storm that annihilated the Caribbean and is making its way up north to the US state of Florida. The storm after wreaking havoc in the Caribbean, slowed down to a Category 3 storm before hitting parts of Florida. However, people had  been warned by the NHC to not undermine the storm in any way whatsoever as it still poses threats to life. Later, Irma made a landfall on Marco Island with high storm surges of 10 to 15 ft. and a few hours after, the eye of the storm was over Naples, where for some time everything was calm and things were bright because of the eye of storm being right over Naples, but the condition was temporary because as soon as the eye had passed over the area and the souther band of the storm had hit the area with strong winds, clouds and storm surges things were rough again. Albeit, by this time, the storm had been downgraded to a Category 2 storm. The eye of the storm then moved to the area of Fort Myers, where it battered the city with windspeeds of up to 110Mph. In recent news, American Airlines were to resume flights on Monday but contradicting that, it's been made clear by the Miami International Airport that the airport operations will be shut on Monday and thus putting the rumors to rest. More details awaited.
  • Latest news reports coming in suggest that Irma has finally made a landfall in Florida in the unincorporated community of Cudjoe Key of Monroe County in the United States. The region is expecting storm surges and it is being speculated that this is just the beginning. The harsh winds are forcing ocean water to flow over the roads of the city. More strong surges are yet to arrive. Miami right now, is facing forceful winds capable of uprooting the trees, power cables, billboards, etc. The eye of the storm is over Florida Keys after it traversed over the Caribbean Island of Cuba. So far 20 deaths have been reported across the Caribbean with loss amounting to billions of dollars. President Donald Trump has announced disaster relief funds for Puerto Rico. More than million homes are now without power in South Florida according to Florida Power & Light. More Details awaited.
  •  At around 7 AM EST Irma has reached the lower Florida keys. It is currently a category 4 Hurricane with a sustained wind speed of 130 mph. It is expected to move along Florida's western coast, through Naples and Fort Myers and making its way to Tampa. Meanwhile, as per the report about 420,000 people are without power.
    • New reports regarding Hurricane Irma suggest that the outer bands of the hurricane have reached the southern part of the state and rains and strong winds have begun battering southwest of Miami area. The good news is that Irma, for now has been downgraded to a Category 3 storm, however, it is still capable of damaging the structures in it's path even though the intesity has reduced. The flip-side to this is that researchers also claim that this weakened intensity is for the time being only till the storm lashes out Cuba. Once back in the ocean, the storm is expected to regain the lost strength through the warm water of the ocean near Florida Keys and South Florida and become a Category 4, capable enough to cause mass destruction. Rough and fluctuating weather conditions were reported from Virginia Keys, where the outer bands of the storm reached with blasts of wind up to 56Mph. The time for evacuation running out as the storm closes in on the Floridian Peninsula after moving through Cuba and is expected to reach Florida over the weekend with heavy rains, storm surges, mudslides, flash flooding, deluge, etc. More details awaited.
    • In the latest reports, it's being said that Hurricane Irma has once again been reduced to a Category 4 storm from the earlier regained strength of Category 5, with windspeeds of 155Mph. This development in no way means that Hurricane Irma isn't capable of destruction anymore. The hurricane may have slightly weakened but it still can incur a lot of damage to the surroundings. The super-storm has just passed over Cuba and is headed towards the US state of Florida, where it is expected to make a contact on Sunday afternoon. The governor of Florida, Rick Scott has already issued orders for mass evacuations in the state with 5.6 million people fleeing the state in search of safe haven. More details awaited.
    • Irma's menace continues to haunt and daunt the Caribbean Islands and the US State of Florida is also in its focus. Hurricane Irma has just passed through Cuba and is now headed straight to Florida. Around 5.6 million people in Florida are told to evacuate urgently in view of this juggernaut of a hurricane. People are fleeing to the nearest safe possible place in the neighboring states or wherever they can find a safe haven at. Irma, whose intensity had dropped yesterday to a Category 4 hurricane has regained strength and has surged to a Category 5 hurricane once again with windspeeds of up to 160Mph. The demonic storm is set to hit the Floridian coast on Sunday. Hurricane warnings have been issued and extended to the west coast of Florida to Anclote River and northward on the east coast of Florida to the Volusia/Brevard county line. Storm surge warnings have been extended and issued to the west coast of Florida to Anclote River, including Tampa Bay and northward on the east coast of Florida to the Volusia/Brevard county line. A curfew at the Palm Beach County of Florida will be issued from 15:00 Hrs on Sunday. Also, just following the tail of Hurricane Irma, is Hurricane Jose that has been promoted to a Category 4 hurricane and is set to traverse the Easter Carribean Islands of St. Kitts & Nevis, Barbuda, etc. The governments there have asked people to brace the impact from Hurricane Jose. Additionally, Mexico, that was rocked with a 8.1 magnitude of earthquake on the west coast with potential Tsunami warnings, has also been rocked by Hurricane Katia. The intensity of Katia however was not too strong and was categorized as a Category 1 storm with windspeeds of up to 75Mph at the time of landfall. More details awaited.
    • Recent reports suggest that FEMA Chief has been quoted saying that Hurricane Irma is going to devestate the United States. Irma which is almost just 450 miles off the coast of Florida will be soon reaching the state with packed winds of 155 miles an hour. Although downgraded to a Cateogry 4, the storm is still destructive and capable of potentially damaging lives and properties. Florida, over the weekend, can expect storm surges, flash floods, deluge, power outage, etc. It is advised to vacate the region as soon as possible to escape the natural calamity. The hurricane is also expected to hit Georgia, North Carolina & South Carolina around Tuesday. More details awaited.
    • Latest reports suggest that Hurricane Irma has been downgraded to a Category 4 hurricane, which is still dangerous and carries the potential for a catastrophic event. The gusts of wind have decelerated to 155Mph from the earlier 185Mph but, is still high. There has also been a slight deviation noted in the hurricane's current path but, Miami is still in its radar. The residents of Central Florida have been warned against windspeeds of up to 110Mph over the weekend. Meanwhile, the NHC has issued life-threatening conditions for The Turks and Caicos and the Bahamas as harsh winds and storm surges are expected to batter the islands. Intense weather conditions are expected in Florida from Saturday along with life-threatening storm surges for the next 36 hours. Apart from Florida, states of Georgia and North & South Carolina have also been warned of catastrophic flash-floods and mudslides. More details awaited.
    • Irma's destruction has now reached the territory of Turks & Caicos Islands. Windspeeds of up to 175Mph and heavy rains are battering the island. Irma remains to be a Category 5 hurricane and has gone past by the islands of Haiti and Dominican Republic. The damage inflicted is not as huge as other islands before them but that doesn't mean that Irma is not to be afraid of anymore. Concerns regarding the damage intensity of Irma has already alarmed the US authorities and Florida has initiated the process of lockdown. The Kennedy space center which is built to tackle windspeeds of 135Mph has closed its doors. It remains to be seen the damge Irma can cause to the space center when it reaches Cape Canaveral with gusts more than the endurance of the space center. Governor Rick Scott has ordered for the shutdown of schools and colleges beginning Friday until at least Monday. The NHC has issued hurricane warnings for a list of places that are susceptible to Hurricane Irma. The locations include: Jupiter Inlet southward around the Florida peninsula to Bonita Beach, Florida Keys, Lake Okeechobee, Florida Bay, Haiti from the northern border with the, Dominican Republic to Le Mole St Nicholas, South-eastern Bahamas and the Turks and Caicos Islands, Cuban provinces of Camaguey, Ciego de Avila, Sancti Spiritus, and Villa Clara, Central Bahamas, North-western Bahamas. The forecast also warns of severe hurricane conditions to begin in Florida Peninsula and Florida Keys late on Saturday. This is also the first time the NHC has listed Florida in the official hurricane group. Currently, Irma is looming over the Bahamas and is ssong going to appear over the island's southern most tip of archipelago at Little Inagua. Cuba has begun preparations for bracing the impact of the hurricane and tourist evacuation on the island has begun. More details awaited.
    • The ever so strong, Hurricane Irma, has passed over Puerto Rico and is headed to the territories of Dominican Republic, Haiti, the Bahamas, Turks & Caicos Islands and Cuba. The Category 5 storm has so far wreaked havoc on the islands of St. Maarten, Barbuda, Anguilla, British Virgin Islands with 12 confirmed fatalities. Damage has also been inflicted on Puerto Rico but it's not as severe as the islands mentioned before. In the wake of Irma, authorities of Dominican Republic and Haiti have ordered for the schools to remain shut until the storm has passed. Hurricane Irma still has windspeeds of up to 175Mph and is churning its way through to Florida. Massive evacuation orders are in place for the state with evacuation warning expanded in the Miami-Dade County. Storm surge warnings with surges of up to 10 feet have been issued and the storm is said to hit the US state on Friday night or Saturday early morning. The governor of Florida, Rick Scott was quoted “Every Florida family must be prepared to evacuate regardless of the coast you live on. We can rebuild your home but we cannot rebuild your life.” Evacuations are also underway for the coastal area of Georgia, where about 500,000 people have been asked to evacuate. A landfall by Irma is also expected to take place in the state of South Carolina. Ever since the evacuation orders, people have been rushing out of the state in fears for their life and that has led to jammed roadways, overbooked flights, etc. The stores have run out of water supplies, gas stations of fuel and hardware stores of plywood. Fort Lauderdale aiport will shut its operations by Friday evening and the authorities have made it clear that the airport should not be considered as a guranteed safe haven against the storm. “The airport is not a designated shelter during a storm, and operational needs at MIA may require occupants to be evacuated to nearby shelters. Resources like food and water may also not be readily available in the airport during or after the storm.” Miami internation was quoted saying. The National Weather Station has warned the people of Florida of structural damages and has said that the area could remain uninhabitable for weeks or months. Strong wind warnings have also been issued. More details awaited.
    • Amidst all the hue, cries and chaos that's followed in the aftermath of Hurricane Irma, which has crossed the islands of Barbuda, St. Maarten, Anguilla and British Virgin Islands and have left the islands devastated, the death toll that has been confirmed so far has reached 8 and is expected to rise as the events unfold. The PM of Barbuda, Gaston Browne was quoted saying "Barbuda is literally rubble" adding that Hurricane Irma has annihilated 90% of the island. PM Browne further took an indirect dig at President Trump and blamed the events caused by Irma on Climate Change. The PM of Barbuda said:“The science is clear. Climate change is real in the Caribbean we are living with the consequences of climate change. It is unfortunate that there are some who see it differently.” He added:“The irony about it is that islands in the Caribbean are very small. Many of us are not emitters of carbon and we suffering from all of these profligate emissions from large industrial countries. And at the same time you have some leaders in the industrial world who are trying to say that climate change is not real. We do not accept that, we see that as a form of irresponsibility. These heavy polluters ought to take responsibility for climate change. They are the ones who have the large carbon footprint and in essence are contributing to global warming at the expense of other countries that clearly are not polluting the planet.” PM Browne was absolutely saddened and appalled glancing at the destruction and said: “I was shocked, we were cut off from Barbuda, the last set of reports that we had early in the morning at about 2am was that they were doing pretty OK. We had absolutely no knowledge that the island was literally devastated. It was easily one of the most emotionally painful experiences I’ve had. From what I’ve seen at least 90% of the properties in Barbuda suffered some level of damage. Approximately 50% are homeless at this time, they are bunking together. We are trying to get some immediate relief supplies to them, and see how we can start the recovery effort.” Browne further appealed to other commonwealth countries of monetary assistance and said:“It could be in the region of $100m, for a small state that is definitely beyond our means. We will have to approach the international community for some level of assistance. As a member of the Commonwealth we would appreciate any assistance that could be extended by the UK and other Commonwealth countries.” He also commented: “This storm was easily the strongest to have developed in the Atlantic. The carnage is there for all to see.”
    • Latest reports coming in suggest that mandatory evacuation orders for the residents of Miami Beach, Florida have been issued. The order covers the area of Miami-Dade County and has to be evacuated at 07:00Hrs on Thursday. The mayor of Miami Beach, Philip Levine was quoted saying "Miami Beach businesses and residents should evacuate to a relative or friends’ home at a safer location. For those unable to make necessary accommodations, a list of open shelter locations can be found here. South Florida remains in the forecast track for either a direct hit or major storm impacts. Do not take this lightly. Plan now to keep yourself and your family safe." He further added , "Bus transportation to evacuation shelters on the mainland will be provided by Miami-Dade county. County transit buses will provide transportation to these shelters from 21 different locations, and cease operations and evacuations three hours prior to the estimated arrival of tropical storm force winds." It is important to mention that there are no hurricane shelters in Miami and therefore, citizens are advised to abandon the area completely. As for the news from the Carribean Islands, it is being reported that Irma has demolished almost 95% of the St. Maarten islands governed by the French government. Hurricane Irma is progressing through the Caribbean Islands, making it's way to the mainland USA. More details awaited.
    • Hurricane Irma has been making news for being the strongest storm in the Atlantic ever recorded but, the major hurricane has also set the record for sustaining maximum windspeeds for more than 24Hrs. Irma's windspeeds reached as high as 185Mph and apparently there's no stopping to that and no signs of receding either. As per latest reports, the UN has said that approximately 37 million people could be affected due to Hurricane Irma. The UN also has deployed a humanitarian team to work along with the Caribbean Disaster Management Agency to tackle this beast of a hurricane. As for Florida, the NHC said, that as of now, no hurricane warnings have been issued so far for the state. Although, people have started stocking up the essentials in view of a potential impact, it's still just a prediction that the path taken by Irma will lead it to the Florida Peninsula. As as precautionary measure, all the hospitals in Florida keys would remain shut on Friday. However, the NHC has predicted that Irma could hit Southern Florida by Sunday afternoon and could affect 7 million people living in the area. Reports from the Caribbean Islands state that at least 600,000 people in Puerto Rico and another 50,000 are rendered without power and water respectively. Two deaths on the islands of St. Martin and St. Barthelemy and one on Barbuda have been confirmed with the amount of destruction caused by the hurricane being speculated as massive. A hurricane watch is in place for the following places: British Virgin Islands, US Virgin Islands, Haiti, Dominican Republic, Puerto Rico, the Turks and Caicos Islands and the Bahamas. More details awaited.
    • The expected has happened. The deadly and frightening Category 5 Hurricane, Irma, has reached the islands of St. Martin and St Barthélemy. The islands are French governed territories and 7000 people here have refused to seek shelter and protection against Irma for some reason as opposed to the advisory issued by the authorities. Winds of up to 183Mph have been recorded on the French-governed islands and the weather conditions seem to be at their harshest. Irma is possibly one of the strongest Atlantic hurricanes in history. Latest reports also suggest that Irma is being followed by another hurricane named Jose, that has developed in the Atlantic but, the intensity and path to be taken by it are still being predicted and are in its nascent stage. More details awaited.
  • Latest reports suggest that Irma is one of the strongest Hurricanes in history. Apparently, the strength of the hurricane is so high that it showed up on seismometers, a device used to measure the intensity of the earthquakes. Windspeeds are at a mind-boggling 185Mph. The storm has made its landfall at Barbuda islands and the eye of the hurricane is now headed towards Saint-Martin and Saint-Barthelemy islands. The French authorities have issued advisory for people situated on these islands but, those 7000 people have refused to seek shelter against the catastrophic hurricane. Irma's core's movement is expected on Wednesday over portions of northern Leeward Islands or northern Virgin Islands. It is right now about 145 miles away from the east coast of St. Croix.
  • The USA had just begun recovering from the catastrophic damage wreaked by Hurricane Harvey in Texas and now Hurricane Irma, a Category 5 Hurricane is posing serious threat to the east coast of the country. But, that's not all. It has recently been reported that FEMA(Federal Emergency Management Agency) has run out of funds after Hurricane Harvey and apparently has no back up for now to tackle the devastation that could be caused by Hurricane Irma which is being speculated way more powerful than its predecessor Harvey, with windspeeds up to 185Mph. The agency on last Thursday, had $2.14Bn in its account and this Tuesday, the amount has been reduced to more than half with just $1.01Bn remaining and this amount too is expected to exhaust if and when Irma hits Florida.Also, out of $1.01Bn, only $541Mn is immediately available for Hurricane Harvey response and recovery related efforts. It'll be interesting to see how the present US government under POTUS Donald Trump will handle the situation. Hurricane Irma is expected to make a landfall in the Caribbean islands in the region of Leeward islands on late Tuesday night or early Wednesday morning. More details awaited.
  • It has now been confirmed by NOAA that Hurricane Irma is a Category 5 Hurricane and current report by the government agency suggests that the Major Hurricane has attained windspeeds of up to 180Mph which is scary to say the least and has the capability to destruct anything in its path. The enormous hurricane is expected to make a landfall late Tuesday night or early Wednesday morning. Although, the path to be taken by the hurricane for  mainland US is still uncertain, the entire east coast from Texas and Gulf of Mexico to New York has been alarmed and citizens are being urged to take precautionary and required safety measures. The hurricane has successfully generated life-threatening conditions for the Caribbean islands and is likely to cause massive destruction through winds, landslides, mudslides, torrential rains, flas flooding and deluge. It's also being estimated that people on the Caribbean islands could be rendered without power for as long as four months. People are making necessary arrangements for survival, in the places that are going to be hit by this Major Hurricane. More details awaited.
  • Latest reports about Irma suggest that the hurricane has taken a giant shape and has been upgraded to a Category 5 on the Saffir-Simpson Hurricane Wind Scale. For the uninitiated, this Saffir-Simpson Hurricane Wind Scale is based on the sustained wind speeds of the hurricane and helps in predicting the damage with 1 being the least and 5 being the highest magnitude on this scale. Since, Irma has been awarded a 5 on the scale, the catastrophe in the picture looks to be humongous. Irma is expected to make it's landfall by Tuesday night or early Wednesday morning in Leeward Islands. A threat of flash floods, mudslides, landslides and deluge surrounds the Caribbean islands. The US states of the East Coast especially Florida, North & South Carolina, Georgia, etc. have also been issued warnings of a potential storm and people are advised to have an evacuation plan in place. However, the path of the storm for the US states still remains unclear and depends entirely on the first landfall. As for the people in the Caribbean, it is advised to follow the orders of the authorities and prepare for the impact. Stock up on all the basic amenities to survive and wait out the storm. More details awaited. 
  • The clouds of uncertainty are now becoming clear with respect to the path taken by the most feared hurricane so far. Latest reports suggest that the gigantic hurricane Irma is heading for the US state of Florida. The Category 4 hurricane is predicted to be making a landfall on the US east coast. NOAA’s National Hurricane Center (NHC) which is situated in Miami, Florida has issued warning to its citizen to have an evacuation plan in order for a successful rescue. The landfall might still be approximately a week away but, the time for evacuation preparation is running out quickly. Apart from Florida, Georgia and North & South Carolina are expected to receive torrential rains. The hurricane is also expected to move into the Gulf Of Mexico. More details awaited.
  • The wrath of the nature continues as reports of Hurricane Irma getting stronger surfaces. Irma is being seen as a major threat to the lands in its path and the hurricane is likely to turn into a Category 4 right before the landfall. Latest reports say that the behemoth of a hurricane is set to strike the US Virgin Islands on Tuesday and hit the mainland by Thursday. Meanwhile, a hurricane watch has been issued for Antigua and Barbuda, Anguilla, Montserrat, St Kitts and Nevis, St Martin, Guadeloupe and the British Virgin Islands. It is also official now, that Irma poses a serious threat to the east coast of the US but still a hurricane watch and warning have yet to be issued to the people of the east coast by the authorites as the path of the hurricane remains unclear. More details awaited.
  • Latest reports suggest that Hurricane Irma has gained strength in the Atlantic Ocean near the Caribbean islands and is moving like a juggernaut. The islands of Antigua and Barbuda, Montserrat, St. Kitts and Nevis, Anguilla and the British Virgin Islands are likely to bear the brunt of this mammoth first. Currently categorized as a Category 3 hurricane, the recently gained strength will soon promote it to a Category 4 and while it's being predicted that the hurricane might hit the east coast of the US, the trajectory remains to be a mystery and is only going to get clear by next week. The areas in the Carribean can expect power outages, flash flooding, torrential rains, extreme winds, loss & damage to property and mudslides. It is highly advised to follow the evacuation procedure directed by the officials.
  • The catastrophe wreaked by hurricane Harvey has hardly settled when another hurricane is set to impact. A powerful Hurricane, Irma, is intensifying in the open Atlantic. Hurricane Irma poses a major threat to the Caribbean and the United States next week. Irma, which was a tropical storm till Wednesday morning, transformed into a large Category 3 Hurricane by Thursday afternoon in the central Atlantic with 120 mph winds. The trajectory of the storm is still uncertain as it is a week away from the potential US impact. As per the reports of the National Hurricane Center, the Category 3 storm's center is about 1,495 miles east of the Caribbean Sea's Leeward Islands and is moving west at 13mph. For the first time, the name Irma has been used for an Atlantic tropical storm or hurricane. However, the NOAA's National Hurricane Center predicts that Irma will become an “extremely dangerous” Category 4 as it approaches the Leeward Islands next week.”
  • Hurricane Irma is already making news for its strength. Irma has been categorized as a Category 3 or 4 Hurricane with windspeeds of up to 110 mph and movement with a speed of 13 mph. The hurricane might still be a few days away from hitting the lands but it is feared that when it arrives, it could cause massive destruction and huge demolitions. While the hurricane is still in the Atlantic Ocean being fuelled by the warm water of the ocean, it's not expected to hit any land in its path before next week. It is advised to people to make necessary arrangements to brace the impact of the hurricane and follow the evacuation orders given by the authorities. The places to encounter the hurricane first are Turks & Caicos Islands, Antigua & Barbuda, Dominica, Cayman Islands & Sint Maarten. It is also being speculated that the hurricane might hit the coast of either Florida or New York and while the USA have all the reasons to worry about and prepare for it, the path of the hurricane is still uncertain and can only be ascertained once we are into next week and have observed its course. More details awaited.
  • While the USA is still struggling with aftermath of the destruction caused by Hurricane Harvey, weather department officials have already sounded off an alarm for another Major Hurricane coming up on the east coast. The hurricane named Irma is building up it's strength and coming up in the North Atlantic Ocean near the island of Barbuda and is most likely to travel to the US state of Florida thorugh the islands of Cuba, Haiti, Dominican Republic, Puerto Rico, British Virgin Island and Anguilla. However, some weather officials are also speculating that the storm could rather take a different route and move to the state of New York rather than Florida. In any case, it's posing a serious threat as it's tagged as a Major Hurricane which is definitely not a good news for the territories falling in its path and the Hurricane could most likely be labelled as a Category 3 or 4 Hurricane and could cause massive destruction. More details awaited.
