We are praying that our CFD community stays safe as hurricane Irma continues to take its path toward us. Just how big and powerful is Hurricane Irma? According to the National Hurricane Center, it is the strongest Atlantic basin hurricane EVER recorded. As it bears down on the Caribbean and the southeast United States, this chipper brings to mind some significant shocking numbers and facts.
As of Sept. 7, 2017, Hurricane Irma is located at 20 degrees latitude and 70 degrees longitude.
185 miles per hour is the strength of Irma's maximum sustained winds with pressures of 922 mb. 1992's Hurricane Andrew, the most destructive hurricane to hit Florida, had maximum winds of 175 mph. Florida Governor Rick Scott warned that Irma was "bigger, faster and stronger" than Andrew, which hit as a Category 5.
Irma is currently rated as a category 5 hurricane and one of the worst storms we have seen in South Florida in a very long time.
65,000 is the square mileage of Irma's tropical storm force winds. That's roughly the same area as the state of Florida.
300 miles is the diameter of those tropical storm force winds, which is about twice as wide as Florida's peninsula.
The number of people that are being evacuated from the Bahamas currently stands at 5000. Bahamian Prime Minister Hubert Minnis said it is the largest evacuation in the history of the country.
79,000 signifies the population of Monroe County, Florida, which makes up the Florida Keys. The county is under a mandatory evacuation order ahead of Irma's predicted arrival.
STAY SAFE EVERYONE!! If you need anything at all, don’t hesitate to reach out. We’re in this together! <3
