"With sustained winds now at 185 mph and gusts up to 220 mph, the National Hurricane Center confirmed today that Hurricane Irma is now the strongest Atlantic storm ever recorded outside the Gulf of Mexico and Caribbean. The latest advisory report from the NHS, also shows the Category 5 hurricane is on pace to break the record for hurricane wind speed (which is currently set at winds of 190 mph). While the exact formation, forecast and path will likely change in the coming days, Irma is currently moving west at 14 mph, and is expected to make contact with the Leeward Islands today. According to the NHS, "there is an increasing chance of seeing some impacts from Irma in the Florida Peninsula and the Florida Keys later this week and this weekend." Earlier today, a mandatory evacuation order was issued for everyone in Monroe County, which is located in the Florida Keys. "   Via Orlando Weekly

So what does this mean for Savannah? With Irma hitting the Caribbean today, Georgia and the Carolinas are predicted to be in her path. Residents are stocking up on water, gas and supplies. It is uncertain how strong the hurricane will be once it hits Chatham County or when a mandatory   evacuation will be! If this storm moves over the warm waters of the Atlantic, will will be dealing with the strongest hurricane to hit Savannah since Hurricane Gracie in 1959!!!  Please heed the mandatory evacuation and get somewhere safe! We will be keeping everyone updated with posts as Hurricane Irma heads this way!
