The latest path update shows Hurricane Irma hitting Florida on early Sunday, possibly making landfall as a Category 4 hurricane.
The NOAA said: “On the forecast track, the eye of Irma should continue to move westward away from the Turks and Caicos islands and toward the southeastern Bahamas this morning.“The core of the hurricane will then move between the north coast of Cuba and the Bahamas during the next day or two.”The monster storm has already claimed the lives of nine people as it crosses the Caribbean and is expected to make landfall in Miami, Florida this weekend.
US forecaster, Craig Setzer, in Miami issued a stark, telling Florida residents to brace themselves as the storm strengthens as it heads in their direction.
He said: “You can still see a very powerful looking eyewall, that is the part of the storm where the worst of the weather is.“That is the part we don’t want to go through, the outside part is still hurricane-force winds but it’s that core eyeball we just hope does not come here.”Setzer also warned of possible storm surges dumping huge amounts of sea water on Miami as Hurricane Irma hits.
Thanks, mystery cam man/woman Clearwater - just looked at an old photo and the cam has definitely shifted to the left - as you used to be able to see the whole of the pier and less of the hotel building on the left.
“I think it's my job.’She added in a statement: "I did my job as an NFL beat writer and asked Cam Newton a question about one of his receivers. I see that @Messer :) Mind you I have come back on at the wrong time...it's now too dark (pm/am UK time) to appreciate anything.Maybe they realised it's not great for publicity and now it means I can go back to capturing straight horizon shots, not wonky ones!I don't understand why there are 560 people on line and this is all we can see. I was just going to email the sponsor to ask that woman to please move or sit down but their system appears to be down.Over 500 viewers from all over the world watching this spectacle and this woman who can't seem to get off her phone is spoiling it!Hurricane Irma, having been considered the strongest ever Atlantic Ocean hurricane ever recorded, wreaked havoc across the small islands St Martin, Anguilla and Barbuda and now is over the Turks and Caicos.
