Richard Branson Rode Out Hurricane Irma in a Wine Cellar

Cranes in Miami impacted by Irma

At least 10 people have died in the hurricane so far, while millions are still in danger.

Flight radar captured the incredible path of both flights, which managed to narrowly avoid the Category 5 storm's powerful core.

Travel waivers are available for eligible United Airlines passengers traveling through specific airports who need to change their travel due to the storm. "Regardless of which coast you live on, be prepared to evacuate", Scott said. He urged gas stations to stay open as long as possible to accommodate evacuees. The place will get busier in the next few days, and on Saturday night will go into lockdown, with metal shutters enclosing the doors and everyone in for the night until the storm passes. Boats were tied down or taken out of the water.

After spiking demand drove prices for domestic flights out of Miami to $3,000 on some websites, the airlines faced a flurry of online criticism and moved to address the issue.

Irma's wind speeds have made it the strongest hurricane in the Atlantic basin, outside the Gulf of Mexico and Caribbean Sea, in the NHC's recorded history, the center said.

The National Hurricane Center is remarkably calm and hushed, considering what's coming directly this way.

As of 8 a.m. EDT Thursday, the Category 5 storm was located about 100 miles north of Punta Cana in the Dominican Republic and about 165 miles southeast of Grand Turk Island, according to the National Hurricane Center.

According to the Post, the 28 miles per hour winds and gusts up to 36 miles per hour in San Juan Wednesday afternoon were well below operating limits for the Boeing 737. It was at the time the most expensive natural disaster in USA history.

Hendry County officials said they encourage voluntary evacuations for residents in all low-lying areas. Weather Underground had Irma approaching the Florida Keys early Sunday morning and moving up the East Coast as a Category 3 system, while the Global Forecast System model showed Irma's eye missing Miami, skirting the coast and hitting SC on Tuesday.

President Donald Trump approved an emergency declaration for the U.S. Virgin Islands and Puerto Rico, allowing the Federal Emergency Management Agency and other agencies to remove debris and give other services that will largely be paid for by the U.S. government.
