Irma made her northward turn, and now over the Florida keys, making landfall at Key West as a category 4 hurricane. The eye is reorganizing, and the path appears to be slightly west of the originally forecast path. Nevertheless, southwest Florida will take a pounding.
Irma is very similar to 1960’s Hurricane Donna, making US landfall on the same date, September 10. Donna made landfall near Marathon, Florida with winds of 130 mph (215 km/h), hours before another landfall south of Naples at the same intensity.
I have been watching the local NBC2 live video feed since last night. They are on the ground, have their own radar, and are broadcasting hurricane news 24-7.
