Donate to Hurricane Irma Relief Efforts
Hurricane Irma, a Category 5 storm, has ripped through and devastated the Caribbean Islands this past week, killing at least 10 people on Wednesday and leaving hundreds of thousands with destroyed homes or without power. Its 185 mph winds endured for 37 hours, the longest any storm has maintained such strong winds. The hurricane is now moving toward South Florida and expected to make landfall this weekend. Officials in South Florida have issued mandatory evacuations for many counties, and others should be ready to leave if needed.
