Hurricane Irma is a potentially catastrophic hurricane and will bring life-threatening wind, storm surge and rainfall to parts of the Caribbean—including Puerto Rico and the U.S. Virgin Islands—as well as the Florida Keys, portions of Southern Florida and the Florida Peninsula. Irma is expected to remain a powerful hurricane through the September 9—10 weekend.
