The latest satellite imagery this morning shows Hurricane Irma barreling toward Florida. These satellite images come from the U.S. National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration’s most advanced weather satellite called, GOES-16.
Hurricane Irma is currently pummeling the north coast of Cuba as a category 4 storm but is expected to strengthen as it leaves Cuba, according to the National Hurricane Center’s latest dispatch.
The hurricane is likely to make landfall in Florida Sunday. 5.6 million people in the state — over a quarter of its population — have been asked to evacuate.
Here’s an infrared image from GOES-16 taken this morning that shows the storm in context of the wider U.S.
