Friday Morning Hurricane Irma Update

Hurricane Irma still a powerful and dangerous storm spinning toward the United States. As of 8 o’clock this morning, Irma was 80 miles northeast of Cabo Lucrecia, Cuba.

A western track is looking more likely for Irma, this means a landfall in Florida as a major hurricane. A direct hit to the Florida Peninsula puts the Coastal Empire and Lowcountry are on the “dirty” side of the hurricane, where severe weather becomes the main threat. Storm surge is still possible and could lead to flooding for those who live along the coast.
