As this hurricane season is looking to be a repeat of the disastrous 2005 season with multiple big hurricanes hitting the US, I decided it is time for a thread. As of a few minutes ago, Irma is looking to make the worst possible path through the US. The strongest part of the storm (the Northeast eye wall) is going to slam right into Miami area as a Category 4 or 5 (winds between 130-160 mph with gusts over 200). The Florida keys are going to be absolutely destroyed, and Tampa is going to suffer horrible storm surge. I would not be surprised if mandatory evaluations are not in place within a few hours. This is the first time that two category 4 or higher storms have hit the US in the same season (let alone within a few weeks of each other). After this, the models diverge a little bit. The EURO/ECMWF (the most accurate) is saying it will go right up the state of Florida and screw everyone in that state. The GFS model says its going to go offshore, back into the Atlantic as a Category 2 or 3 and then hit Georgia/SC This is absolutely horrifying. This hurricane has already completely destroyed many islands, including Barbuda and St. Maartin. Here are pictures of the devastation. http://www.express.co.uk/news/weath...res-Caribbean-photos-storm-floods-photographs Apparently FEMA is almost out of money as well, as most of it went to Harvey. Ugh, I feel bad for those in Florida. This sucks.
