It is the peak of the hurricane season that runs until the beginning of November and while Harvey still churns though the middle of the country as a tropical depression another powerful system is developing in the Atlantic Ocean. Hurricane Irma is a category 2 storm that is expected to strengthen to a category 3 or higher over the next few days.
Its exact path is not known, but it is feared that it will enter the Caribbean and possibly become a threat to the United States Coast. The National weather Service will be closely monitoring this storm, particularly in light of the devastation caused by Hurricane Harvey.
