About Hurricane Irma
Hurricane Irma is an extremely powerful tropical cyclone threatening the Leeward Islands, Bahamas, Florida, and other areas. It is the first major hurricane to develop in the eastern Atlantic (east of 35°W) since Julia of 2010. The ninth named storm, fourth hurricane, and second major hurricane of the 2017 Atlantic hurricane season, Irma, a classic Cape Verde hurricane, developed on August 30 near the Cape Verde Islands from a tropical wave that moved off the west African coast two days prior.
Under favorable conditions, Irma rapidly intensified shortly after formation, becoming a Category 2 hurricane a mere 24 hours after it first formed. It became a major hurricane shortly after this; however, the intensity began fluctuating for the next several days due to a series of eyewall replacement cycles. On 5 September, Irma became a Category 5 hurricane with 185 mph (295 km/h) winds, making it the strongest Atlantic hurricane since Allen of 1980 in terms of maximum sustained winds, and the strongest tropical cyclone worldwide in 2017. Irma is also the strongest hurricane in the Atlantic basin outside the Caribbean Sea and Gulf of Mexico, and the easternmost Atlantic hurricane of this strength on record, surpassing David of 1979.
