According to the National Hurricane Center, within a very short time, Hurricane Irma had moved into the south of Grand Turk Island and east of Great Inagua Island. As it barrels through the Islands, it single-handedly dragged along with it, 16 mph winds and up to 20 inches of rain.

Several houses are under water, cars are careening through the streets and the natives sit in ruined watery pitch black houses, as they frantically pray for some connection with the outside world. Barbuda which has a population of 1,600 people, has been mercilessly isolated.

In Florida, authorities are hoping they would be spared from such devastation. They are also advising residents  to evacuate and prepare for the inevitable. The Florida keys, Florida Bay, Lake Okeechobee, Jupiter Inlet Southward and Bonita Beach, have been placed under a hurricane watch by Florida governor, Rick Scott.
