Earth is fighting to stay alive. Mass dieoffs, triggered by anthropogenic assault and fallout of planetary defense systems offsetting the impact, could begin anytime!

Hurricane IRMA Will ‘Devastate’ Parts of the US: FEMA Chief

Posted by feww on September 8, 2017

IRMA steering toward Florida

The super storm has been downgraded to a Cat. 4 hurricane, for now, with maximum sustained winds of 155 mph (250 km/h).

IRMA could restrengthen to a Cat. 5 hurricane, with a probability of 40 percent, as it moves closer to southern Florida, FIRE-EARTH Science believes.

Potential Impact on Southern US

“Hurricane Irma continues to be a threat that is going to devastate the United States in either Florida or some of the southeastern states,” FEMA Chief said.

National Hurricane Center (NHC) downgraded IRMA to Category 4 hurricane on Friday, just slightly less powerful than a Cat. 4, after the super storm had wreaked havoc hammering multiple islands in the Caribbean.

Florida “has never seen” a worse storm, said the governor.
