US bracing for second hurricane

Hurricane

About two weeks ago, the US was hit by a devastating storm title Hurricane Harvey. Various celebrities have added in the recovery process from the storm and just as things started to look up, a second hurricane is on its way.

Hurricane Irma has been upgraded to a powerful Category 4 as it heads towards the Caribbean. This means that the hurricane will consist of sustained winds of 209-251 kph with ‘catastrophic’ outcomes. The outcomes include uprooted trees and downed power lines, water and electricity outages, and significant property damage causing uninhabitable conditions, according to the National Hurricane Center.

Islands in the way of the storm have been warned to brace themselves. Hurricane advisories have been issued for territories that dot the West Indies, including parts of the Leeward Islands, the British and US Virgin Islands and Puerto Rico. The hurricane also threatens Florida and the US East Coast. 

In preparation for the storm, the economically struggling Puerto Rico government on Monday declared a state of emergency and activated the National Guard.
