Hurricane Irma has been called a “beast.” The hurricane is making its way across the Atlantic Ocean, and forecasters are keeping a close eye on where it may make landfall. Currently, it’s projected that the storm will strike Florida, but the lower East Coast may be at risk as well.
While the storm may be threatening Florida and Georgia, the good news is that the people of Texas may be spared. The people of Houston and surrounding areas have had all the pounding they can take from Hurricane Harvey. Currently, officials do not believe the major storm will make landfall before the end of the week.
As of the last reports, Hurricane Irma had been upgraded to a Category 3 storm. It was anticipated that it would continue to pick up steam, and strength, and be upgraded to a Category 4. People in the southern states are being advised to make preparations for the impact of the storm. If it continues to gain strength, experts warn that there could be devastation the likes of which no one has seen.
Residents in the Gulf Coast and East Coast are being told to keep a close eye on weather reports and storm trackers. Preparedness will be essential if the storm follows what has been predicted.
