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.
