Hurricane Irma


Hurricane Irma is now a strong Category 5 hurricane with winds to 175 mph. Hurricane Warnings have been issued for the U.S. and British Virgin Islands and Puerto Rico. During the next 24 hours, Irma is expected to maintain a general westward track before turning west-northwest, but Meteorologist Cyndee O'Quinn tells us why the confidence beyond 3 days is lower.

Florida Governor Rick Scott declared a state of emergency Monday afternoon as Hurricane Irma strengthened into a Category 4 storm.

It was too soon to make or deny that call in the past few days, but it’s now time for all Floridians in a hurricane prone area - no matter which coast you live along - to take Irma seriously.
