With Irma bearing down on the South Florida coast, many people are beginning to compare this storm against one of the Atlantic’s previously strongest hurricanes, Andrew. Hurricane Andrew is the last hurricane to make landfall in the United States as a category 5 storm when it came ashore in Miami-Dade County, Florida on August 24, 1992. While it is still too early to know the extent of the impact that Irma will have in Florida and the rest of the country, there are a few comparisons to be made to these storms and the situations surrounding them.
On the heels of Hurricane Harvey, the US braces for impact from a second major hurricane in as many weeks. With Hurricane Irma likely to make an impact somewhere on the Floridian coast, evacuation orders are already being instated with the Florida Keys evacuating all non-residents today. In addition to residents and tourists, Florida is home to many major sports teams including 3 NFL teams, 2 MLB teams, and 7 NCAA football teams that play at the highest level, FBS. Many of these teams are rescheduling or canceling their games for this upcoming weekend.Topics: WeatherOps | Hurricane |
