While much attention remains on Texas and the destruction left by Hurricane Harvey and its historic rainfall, powerful Hurricane Irma is rapidly intensifying in the open Atlantic and poses a major threat to the Caribbean and potentially to the United States next week.

Fear mongering for ratings.

Not to say that Irma won't be a threat, but as for the US, I'll wait till it's a lot closer to us.

Might as well post the increase in seismic activity in the Yellowstone caldera.

Right below this thread, is a very informative and regularly updated thread about Irma. Mind you, one that states clearly that it is too early to tell exactly where Irma will make landfall (if at all).

This thread should be deleted.
