Hurricane Irma Now Category 5 Makes Landfall in the Caribbean

We are in Houston and are still drying up after Harvey. Keeping an eye on Hurricane Irma.

According to the National Hurricane Center, Hurricane Irma made landfall with the eye passing over the Caribbean island of Barbuda around 2 a.m EST on Wednesday. The storm is now heading towards Puerto Rico and other islands in the area. The track after that is currently uncertain.

If you are traveling to the Caribbean or the southeastern portion of the U.S. potentially affected by this storm, check with the hotel or Airbnb you’re booked into to find out the local conditions before you.
