We have a while to track this one, but we have two possibilities here atm: A fish or a US hit.

Irma has been upgraded from a tropical storm to a Category 2 hurricane. This sucker means business. :o

Irma is now an extremely powerful Category 5 hurricane. It is now the second strongest hurricane on record (as far as wind speed goes) in the Atlantic Ocean with winds of 185mph and wind gusts that exceed 200mph! Hurricane Allen is #1 with max winds of 190mph at it's peak (1980).

Irma is also the strongest Atlantic hurricane east of 60W on record.

EDIT: I forgot however, Irma is actually the strongest Atlantic hurricane (winds and pressure) in a decade. (2007; Dean/Felix)

I was not happy at all when Irma hit southwestern Florida, a portion of the state that I hold dear and has a special place in my heart. But at least it was not a Category 5 with nearly 200 mph winds when it made landfall there.
