FACTS ONLY: A hype-free look at Hurricane Irma

PINE BELT (WDAM) - Hurricane Irma continues to move - generally - west across the Atlantic, Monday morning. It is still a Category 3 hurricane. Top wind speeds around 120mph. It is about 600 miles east of the Leeward Islands in the Caribbean. If it continues on its forecast track, it is about seven days away from Florida.

This is not the time to stress, get anxious, or panic. I get it, though. We are all on pins and needles after Harvey.

But, just like you should be doing periodically during Hurricane Season, the best thing to do right now is look over your Hurricane Preparedness kit. And make sure your Hurricane Plan is set.
