Video of Hurricane Irma making landfall in the Caribbean revealed just how powerful the storm is.
The video, uploaded to Youtubeby PTZtv, was reportedly footage from St. Martin’s Maho Beach camera at a AAA Rent-A-Car in the area.
The winds in this hurricane are reaching a devastating 185 mph and the video shows just how powerful that is as trees can be seen bending in the wind.
The National Hurricane Center has warned that the life-threatening storm is capable of catastrophic damage, and it is easy to see why from this video.
Irma is shaping up to be a monster, and everyone in the path of this hurricane should take warnings seriously.
The hurricane passed directly over Barbuda and St. Martin and was the strongest hurricane ever recorded in that region.
As Irma passed over Barbuda, a weather station in the area registered wind gusts to 155 mph before going offline. The rise in water reached nearly 8 feet.
Irma is forecast to weaken to a Category 4 or 5 storm over the next two days, but that doesn’t mean she will be any less dangerous.
Irma is heading toward the Virgin Islands, Puerto Rico, the southeastern Bahamas and Florida, presenting a clear and present danger to the U.S. Virgin Islands and the British Virgin Islands, in particular.
Iram is expected to slam Florida on Saturday with tropical-storm-force winds, with the worst conditions occurring Sunday. It is nearly impossible to pinpoint exactly where Irma will go, but one thing is clear — this is a major storm that has the capability of tearing up everything in its path.
