Florida and the Caribbean may never be the same again.

Hurricane Irma is turning out to be one of the biggest and deadliest hurricanes to ever form and come towards the Caribbean and United State territories.  The storm which has now passed through most of the land territories in the U.S., Cuba and many other Caribbean islands has left a trail of devastation.  

The southwest end of Florida was the most heavily hit by Irma, as the Keys of Florida are practically in ruins.  According to Fort Myers local, Barbara Stimson, who was caught in the middle of the hurricane, “The winds were just terrifying, and most of all, I was afraid that the house was going to flood and the roof was going to blow right off.  I never want to experience or go through this type of natural disaster ever again.”

Many Floridians are without power and have nowhere to go at the current moment.  Water and sewage lines are down all over the state, and, as the mayor of Florida stated, “This is going to take hard work and long hours to get our state back up and running.  It is going to take all of us working together.”  The mayor was also very grateful at the support and aid of the federal government as Trump plans to send aid and money to those in need in Florida.

A new hurricane named Hurricane Maria is now on its way towards Florida.  It has already hit a couple of Caribbean Islands and is still currently a Category 5 hurricane.  It is a couple hundred miles off the coast of Puerto Rico, and may slow down to a Category 4. However, according to the Weather Channel, the storm may continue as a Category 5 up until it is closer to the mainland of the United States.  Depending on the path of Maria, Florida and Puerto Rico could be in some big trouble.

On the northeast of the United States, Category 2 hurricane, Jose, could cause serious flooding hazards.  Wind and flood warnings will be issued as soon as the hurricane gets closer to the east coast. 

This will go down as one of the most deadly hurricane seasons ever recorded.
