Hurricane Irma
September 5, 2017

Will Irma Hit the Carolina's? Well, it's a complicated question. Here is what we know. We know Irma is a powerful Category 5 storm. We know it's moving west. We know Puerto Rico and many Caribbean islands could pay a heavy price as Irma passes over.



The latest:

* Irma strengthens into Category 5 with 175 mph winds
* Authorities warn the storm could dump up to 10 inches of rain
* States of emergency declared in Puerto Rico, the U.S. Virgin Islands and all of Florida
* Hurricane warnings issued for 12 Caribbean island groups, including Antigua

The storm had maximum sustained winds of 175 mph Tuesday morning, and the U.S. National Hurricane Center said additional strengthening is expected.
