Irish family welcome baby girl days before Hurricane Irma hit

The entrance to the Magic Kingdom at Disney World is empty as the theme park was closed because of Hurricane Irma approaching the central Florida area Sunday

Chamberlain said Thursday night that the ceiling had fallen in a hallway where the two women were sheltering, and they found a wasp nest in one room and had to move to another.

She said airlines have said there's no flights available. They slept on pool floats lent to them by Gauss. The airport is now closed, Lowry said, and they would like to come home. "At that point it was saying, 'If you can make arrangements to leave, ' but at that point it was nearly too late", she said.

On the forecast track, the eye of Irma should continue to move between Hispaniola and the Turks and Caicos this afternoon.

Chamberlain's husband, Mark Chamberlain, said he got to talk to his wife at about 5:30 a.m. local time and was very glad that she and Loren were safe. "They survived and that's great". Hurricane Irma has also left catastrophic damage as it passed over Turks and Caicos, southern Bahamas, northern Dominican Republic and northern Haiti.

Thousands of people have been evacuated from at-risk areas across the Caribbean.

Forecasters warn that the storm is potentially deadly as it heads toward Florida, where it is expected to make landfall on Sunday.

"If you're on a low-lying island that's in the path of tropical cyclones, when you do get hit and the sea level is higher and you are getting bigger storm surges, more rainfall and stronger winds, then there will inevitably be much more damage and there will be a certain threshold above which society on such an island would not be viable". Jose remains a risky category 4 hurricane as it moves closer to the Northern Leeward Islands. "They had never experienced a hurricane of this size before", said Rich. Chamberlain said they could find no way off the island after multiple calls to the airliner and embassy.
