Just barely a week after Hurricane Harvey slammed into Texas, the even bigger Hurricane Irma is barreling over the Caribbean. The storm is currently a Category 5, which is the highest level a hurricane can reach. Winds are blowing over 180 miles per hour.

On Wednesday, Irma leveled the islands of Barbuda and St. Martin. So far Hurricane Irma is blamed for three deaths.

We go now to Florida State University’s Center for Ocean-Atmospheric Prediction Studies and Mark Bourassa, professor of meteorology.
