Keep An Eye On Hurricane Irma

(Poughkeepsie, NY) -- Please keep an eye on Hurricane Irma.

It is gaining steam and expected to strengthen into a Category 4 storm over the next several days. As of this morning, forecasters at the National Hurricane Center say Irma is at Category 3 strength. Hurricane Hunter aircraft report Irma's maximum sustained winds are at 120 miles per hour. Forecasters say it's too early to tell exactly where the hurricane might go. 

I remember the devastation that then Tropical Storm Irene brought to the Hudson Valley.  Irene-Irma I just don’t like the sound of it.  Hopefully it will head back out to sea and not threaten us, but again it is always good to be prepared.
