Irma has been downgraded to a tropical storm but will still bring damaging winds, flooding rain, and tornado threats northward into Georgia and the Carolinas, while continuing to lash parts of Florida, even as Irma’s peak winds slowly subside.
Irma has already broken many records:
- Irma is the strongest Atlantic basin hurricane ever recorded outside the Gulf of Mexico and the Caribbean Sea
- It spent three days as a Category 5 hurricane, the longest Category 5 hurricane since satellite storm-tracking began
- No storm on record has maintained winds 185 mph or above for as long as Irma (total of 37 hours)
- It prompted the largest evacuation in the history of the Bahamas — and potentially the largest in the US
