Fresh on the Heels of Harvey, Hurricane Irma Could Be Much Much Worse (Video)

Just two weeks after Hurricane Harvey devastated the Texas Gulf Coast, Hurricane Irma has been upgraded to Category 5 and already has sustained winds stronger than Hurricane Katrina at over 180 mph.

Forecasters expect Irma to take a sharp turn to the north this weekend, but are uncertain as to exactly what track the storm will take. Florida Gov. Rick Scott declared a state of emergency for Florida ahead of Hurricane Irma’s possible landfall there as early as this weekend.

Only three category 5 hurricanes have made landfall in the United States, including the Florida Keys Labor Day Hurricane in 1935, 1969’s Hurricane Camille and Hurricane Andrew in 1992.
