Mar-a-Lago, Trump golf clubs close as Irma approaches

The rough waters where the Miami River meets

Director of Animal Care Diane Suave said the heartbreaking decision to abandon the animals, especially in this cruel manner is "unconscionable".

"Mandatory evacuation for the entire Town remains in effect".

Some Palm Beach County residents who evacuated Hurricane Irma left everything behind, including pets. "Please gather the essentials for 3-4 days, including clothing, medicine, important documents, and communication devices", the town's order said.

Millions have been asked to leave and tens of thousands are in shelters as the center of the storm was expected to reach the Keys by Sunday morning and then Tampa or Miami.

Some social media users have posted the address and Global Positioning System coordinates of Mar-a-Lago and pleaded with Irma to head there. The estate itself has stood since the 1920s, when it was built by heiress Marjorie Merriweather Post.

Mexico Earthquake Death Toll Up to 90
In Xalapa, the capital of the eastern state of Veracruz, "two people died in mudslides" triggered by the rainstorm, Puente said. President Enrique Pena Nieto declared three days of national mourning , and pledged to rebuild shattered towns and villages.

The Palm Beach County Sheriff's Office says out of the 45 arrested, 25 people were just arrested for breaking the curfew. Its staff during the off-season is relatively small: the club hires dozens of temporary foreign workers during the high season, to work as cooks, waiters and housekeepers.

Animal control officials in Palm Beach County are running into an alarming trend that's causing them to call it unprecedented "animal cruelty".

Seven of Trump's hotels, condos and golf courses along Florida's west coast are likely to get hit by Irma which experts are saying is one of the strongest ever recorded in the Atlantic. From Texas to Louisiana, from Florida to Puerto Rico, and always the U.S. Virgin Islands, and everywhere in between that has been affected by these awful storms: "we will endure and come back stronger than ever before", the president said.

Hallie Jackson, of NBC News, reported Friday that all three of those Trump golf clubs were already closed.

The group is also "strongly urging" any guests still holding reservations at Trump National Doral to make alternative lodging arrangements.
