Turks and Caicos, September 5th, 2017 – Providenciales – Hurricane Irma has not even struck any land mass as yet, but she is striking up a whole lot of fear as the storm continues to grow in intensity and makes it way toward so many islands of the Caribbean.
At present, Irma’s wind speeds are up to 175 mph and her trajectory, according to National Hurricane Center model, will send her across Anguilla, British Virgin Islands, Antigua and Barbuda, St Kitts and Nevis, Puerto Rico, Dominican Republic, Haiti, the Turks and Caicos Islands, Inagua and Ragged Island in The Bahamas, along Cuba and the Florida Keys.
However the path of Irma has had variations and so forecasters say we have to wait to see what Irma will do once the hurricane interacts with land.
All officials, from every country we have checked in with, are advising residents to take this storm seriously and to be prepared.
