Fox News is reporting as Florida Governor declares a state of emergency, Hurricane IRMA has been upgraded to a category 5 tropical storm with top wind speeds reaching over 200 MPH and sustaining an average of 175 MPG.
“Some fluctuations in intensity are likely during the next day or two, but Irma is forecast to remain a powerful category 4 or 5 hurricanes during the next couple of days,” the NHC said.
These are wind speeds seen only by Hurricane Katrina in recent years.

Please share your stories, tips and advice below you feel might help members here in our SurvivalLife community.
If you have a bathtub: fill it with water before the hurricane takes out the local water treatment plant/ pumps.
You can also fill up your outside garbage cans with water for flushing.
I suggest life jackets for people and pets to have available and ropes,maybe even in your car
I suggest get out of town immediately go on a camping trip away from the hurricane bring all u can cram into your vehicle cuz it might not be there when u get back
Please be safe all you sexy gals that are over 45 and single . Any one need a place to stay in Washington
