Superstorm Irma continues to grow as it heads west towards the United States of America.
The United States southern coast has been brutally devastated already under Hurricane Harvey and now it looks as if America's southernmost boundaries will be whipped again by the lashes of mother nature.
We've been warning for days now of the growth of Irma, while the mainstream media continues to tell everyone that the burning house is fine and to remain inside the living room on the couch comfortably with flames raging all around them.

Take heed Americans along the gulf coast and the oceanic borders of Florida, Irma is coming and she's going to be a big one.

Many experts have said there is no such thing as a Category 6 storm, but if there were and Irma reaches the climatic predictions of some she would qualify.

Today, Governor Rick Scott issued <a href="http://www.flgov.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/09/SLG-BIZHUB17090402490.pdf">Executive Order 17-235</a> declaring a State of Emergency in all 67 counties within the State of Florida in a preemptive response to Hurricane Irma.
Irma is now a major Category 4 storm which is fast approaching Florida. By declaring the State of Emergency in all 67 Florida counties, Governor Scott is ensuring that local governments have more than enough time, resources, and flexibility to be well prepared for this dangerous storm which could cause catastrophic damage.
Governor Scott said the following:
<blockquote>“Hurricane Irma is a major and life-threatening storm and Florida must be prepared. I have continued to be briefed by the Florida Division of Emergency Management on Hurricane Irma and current forecast models have Florida in Irma’s path – potentially impacting millions of Floridians. Today, given these forecasts and the intensity of this storm, I have declared a state of emergency for every county in Florida to make certain that state, federal and local governments are able to work together and make sure resources are dispersed to local communities as we get prepared for this storm. In Florida, we always prepare for the worst and hope for the best and while the exact path of Irma is not absolutely known at this time, we cannot afford to not be prepared. This state of emergency allows our emergency management officials to act swiftly in the best interest of Floridians without the burden of bureaucracy or red tape.</blockquote>
<blockquote>“In Florida, we know that the best way to protect our families in severe weather is to have a plan. I urge all Floridians to remain vigilant and stay alert to local weather and news and visit
<a href="http://www.floridadisaster.org/getaplan/">Florida Get A Plan</a> today as we all prepare for Hurricane Irma. We will keep monitoring and issuing updates on Hurricane Irma as it approaches Florida.”</blockquote>

The already massive Category 4 Irma is still set to pass through the warm waters of the Bermuda High, which could double the strength of the storm before it approaches the United States of America.

Typhoon Tip was 1,380 miles across, which is the largest known storm stretching from Dallas to New York to ever hit the United States on record, and some say that Irma holds such potential with her massive span.

As if right now as a Category 4 (major) storm the hurricane will sustain 130-156 mph winds.

It is also a major risk as there are several Nuclear Power Plants within the zone where the storm could strike.
Catastrophic damage will occur, with the NOAA saying that, “Well-built framed homes can sustain severe damage with loss of most of the roof structure and/or some exterior walls. Most trees will be snapped or uprooted and power poles downed. Fallen trees and power poles will isolate residential areas. Power outages will last weeks to possibly months. Most of the area will be uninhabitable for weeks or months.”
