Hurricane Irma forecast to hit Florida's east coast

Leonel Geronimo

Weather Underground had Irma approaching the Florida Keys early Sunday morning and moving up the East Coast as a Category 3 system, while the Global Forecast System model showed Irma's eye missing Miami, skirting the coast and hitting SC on Tuesday.

In Barbuda, the hurricane destroyed 90 percent of its structures, said Prime Minister Gaston Browne.

The National Hurricane Center will likely incorporate this change in the European model into their 5 p.m. update, which may shift the path farther to the west.

"On Necker Island we have constructed really strong buildings (with hurricane blinds) that should be able to handle extreme weather pretty well, though with a Category 5 hurricane nearly nothing can withstand it", Branson wrote in blog post.

Hurricane Irma brought strong winds and flooding to Puerto Rico Wednesday, according to NPR, as well as other Virgin Islands. St. Martin/St. Maarten and St. Barts also felt the fury of the Category 5 storm, one of the strongest ever recorded in the Atlantic, according to updates from the region. "I will be on Necker alongside our team, as I have been on the three times we have had hurricanes over the past 30 years".

Once it became clear that the flight was "going for it", Rabinowitz began cheering for its safe landing and remarking on the skill it took to fly through the storm: "Now DL302 has to climb out of SJU, and they're doing so between the outer band of # Irma and the core of the storm". Hurricane Katia is spinning in the Gulf off of southeastern Mexico, while Hurricane Jose is brewing in the Atlantic Ocean. September 10 represents the statistical peak of hurricane season.
