September 2017

Irma is "most powerful Atlantic hurricane in recorded history"

Wire service quotes (as of Noon Sept 6, 2017)

The hurricane is so strong that it appeared on seismometers, which are designed to measure earthquakes, and has the potential for coastal storm surges of up to 20 feet (six metres) above normal tide levels...

"People who are living there (the Florida Keys) or have property there are very scared, and they should be..."

(Recalling Hurricane Harvey in August. 'Harvey' hits Houston, Texas. Unusually warm ocean water magnifies the intensity of "extreme weather events"...)
