Irma is making headlines as the most powerful Atlantic storm in a decade. So far at least nine people have been killed as it hit the dual-island nation of Antigua and Barbuda and the French territories of Saint-Martin and Saint Barthélemy.
Hurricane Irma is an extremely powerful tropical cyclone currently affecting the Leeward Islands and Puerto Rico, and threatening Cuba and the Southeastern United States. It is the strongest Atlantic hurricane since Wilma of 2005 in terms of maximum sustained winds, the most intense in terms of pressure since Dean in 2007, and the first of such intensity to make landfall anywhere in the Atlantic since Felix in 2007.
Irma is also the first Category 5 hurricane to affect the northern Leeward Islands on record.
The storm is moving relatively slowly, at about 26km/h, as it heads towards the southern US coast from the Atlantic, past the Dominican Republic and the Bahamas.
Irma is currently veering north-west, and is likely to skirt the north of Haiti on Friday, move over or near Cuba on Saturday and Sunday, possibly striking islands off Florida.
