Preparing for Hurricane Irma
Hurricane Irma was located in the Atlantic Ocean just as people in Houston and the surrounding areas were putting the pieces back together following Hurricane Harvey. The discovery of the storm led officials to begin tracking it and warning residents of Texas that they may be in for another hit.
As the storm picked up power and inched its way toward the United States, its predicted track was altered slightly. The storm is now expected to strike Florida and the lower East Coast. People that reside in these areas are being advised to prepare for a storm that is expected to be the strongest that has hit the nation in decades.
Residents are being advised that the Category 3 hurricane could be a Category 4 or 5 by the time it makes landfall. If predictions prove to be accurate, it is presumed that entire cities could be devastated and even destroyed. Residents should prepare for mandatory evacuations and should begin stocking up on supplies now. The storm is expected to strike land as early as late this week. People who live on the Gulf Coast and East Coast should keep a close eye on the track of the storm and follow any instructions put forth by officials.
