Hurricane Irma

As the United States focuses on relief efforts in Texas following  Hurricane Harvey and its historic rainfall, Hurricane Irma is rapidly  intensifying in the open Atlantic. On Thursday, it was named a large  Category 3 hurricane, with winds of 115 mph. CNN reports that Irma poses  a major threat to the Caribbean and potentially the southeast United  States next week. The forecast picture should become clearer after the  weekend; any impact from the storm shouldn't be felt until next Tuesday  in the Leward Islands and Puerto Rico.
