PLEASE SHARE THIS POST so that people understand this is not an ordinary hurricane.
Hurricane Irma continues to strengthen. Although it is not the biggest hurricane on record in terms of size, it is the most powerful in terms of wind speeds, clocking in at 185 MPH. The eye of the storm is 25 miles wide.
Currently, Irma is hitting the Caribbean islands very hard. At least 3 deaths have been reported thus far, and the number is expected to grow as towns are reportedly being destroyed.
Irma continues to pack 185-mph winds and is located about 50 miles north of San Juan, Puerto Rico, the National Hurricane Center said in a 8 p.m. ET advisory. It was heading west-northwest at 16 mph.
Currently, the number one video trending on Youtube is from PTZtv. According to the PTZtv Youtube channel, the webcam that captured the hurricane video is reportedly situated outside a rental car store in St. Marteen. The sounds and visuals are chilling.
Below is the PTZtv video, plus two other videos. One of the videos shows more of the damage from Hurricane Irma, and the other video is from CBS NEWS. It’s from the Florida Keys where people are currently evacuating.
