Hurricane Irma to Strengthen over the Weekend
Irma has rapidly intensified to a Category 2 hurricane this morning and is expected to continue strengthening. Irma is expected to become a major hurricane by tonight. The National Hurricane Center warns that Irma will be “an extremely dangerous hurricane for the next several days.”
Although Irma currently poses no threat to land, we will continue to monitor this potent storm. Areas in the Caribbean including the Dominican Republic, Haiti, and Puerto Rico sound pay extra close attention.
We will continue to watch Irma as it moves westward across the Atlantic over the weekend.
