Hurricane Irma is gaining strength in the Atlantic as it moves toward the Gulf of Mexico, the National Hurricane Center (NHC) announced Thursday.


Irma was upgraded from a tropical storm to a hurricane with winds from 74 to 110 miles per hour at 11 a.m. Thursday morning.


Irma is “expected to be an extremely dangerous hurricane for the next several days,” an NHC public advisory said.

Well sooner or later the luck had to run out.
GOP House members came to Paul Ryan to be Speaker. He didn't come to them. And he was everybody's conservative darling back in 2012. So unless 1 of the remaining 240 wants to step up & do a better job in budgeting & negotiations & herding the party cats, then everybody please STFU. You go to battle with the army you have, not the one you want but don't have.

People.   They do call it"Hurricane Season" for a reason.  This shit has been going on since the !st Monkey in Florida decided to throw a coconut instead of his own Poop at his neighbor.

IMHO it is much more likely that Irma will track up the East coast.  Perhaps a glancing blow to Florida.

If you look at the history of "similar" storms that is what has happened.

Irma has a long way to go. Early model runs are often wrong on the storm track. Texas does not need a second hit.

Oh yeah, I forgot about Matthew.  My mom is about a 1/2 mile from the intracoastal in Jupiter and with that monster coming in she decided to go to a friend of her's house further west.  The friend lost power for several hours.  My mom's place never did.

Yes  and taking a look at where the track controling high pressure sytems will be located as it moves this way.
