8 09 2017

 

After the Category 5 Hurricane Irma made its landfall in the Caribbean with 175 mph sustained winds, Hurricane Irma is expected to make a landfall in South Florida this weekend.

NBC News reported that at least 12 people were killed due to the hurricane that had caused vast devastation in the Caribbean islands.

Florida is braced for a possible direct hit that could cause a devastating damage to the southern part of the state.

CNN reported that the National Hurricane Center said Irma will make landfall in southern Florida as a dangerous major hurricane and has issued hurricane and storm surge warnings for South Florida including from Jupiter Inlet on the east coast of the state and southward around the Florida Peninsula to Bonita Beach on the west coast.

The warning included the Florida Keys, Lake Okeechobee, and Florida Bay. 

NBC News also wrote that the National Weather Service said that “locations may be uninhabitable for weeks or months” due to extreme winds, adding that “structural damage to buildings, with many washing away” was possible in some coastal areas.

Hurricane Irma is one of the strongest Atlantic storms ever recorded as it caused massive destruction to multiple places including Barbuda, Puerto Rico, Turks, Caicos and others.

Below are some photos taken from CNN:

Last two months, Texas was hit by the deadly Category 4 Hurricane Harvey, that caused immense damage and catastrophic flooding, and also killed at least 70 people.

Irene barreled through the Turks and Caicos Islands late Tuesday as a Category 1 hurricane, blowing off some roofs, flooding roads and downing power lines.

In Puerto Rico, Irene caused heavy flooding, landslides and Gov. Luis Fortuno said on Wednesday that 765 people remain in shelters, two days after he declared a state of emergency.

In the Dominican Republic, flooding, rising rivers and mudslides have prompted the government to evacuate nearly 38,000 people.

In Bahamas, Capt. Stephen Russell tells The Associated Press that the Category 3 hurricane had at least caused 90 percent of the homes in the settlements on Acklins and Crooked islands severely damaged or destroyed >>> please click here for updated photos <<<.

Irene was expected to become a Category 4 hurricane by Thursday as it passes over the northwestern Bahamas en route to the eastern U.S. coast, said the U.S. National Hurricane Center in Miami, Florida.

Raging waves whipped up by Hurricane Irene batter the seafront in Santo Domingo, Dominican Republic, on Tuesday.
