Hurricane Irma is currently a Category 3 and the storm’s center is located 125 miles southeast of Key West. It is packing sustained winds of 125 mph with gusts in excess of 150 mph and is moving west at 9 mph. It is expected to restrengthen as it begins to move north. The Florida Keys and South Florida are beginning to experience strong tropical winds and rain from the outer bands of this storm.

At 1830 (ET) last night, American Airline’s last flight departed Miami in advance of the storm. Flight Attendants are to be commended for carrying thousands of passengers and employees from Miami and other affected airports prior to their closures.
