  • Harvey: Pictures show waves rolling over Texas highway in aftermath of hurricane

By Thursday, the hurricane should be north of Puerto Rico.

In an earlier forecast on Twitter, the NHC maintained that it was still too early to determine whether Hurricane Irma would make landfall and cause direct impacts in the areas within the United States' territory.

The National Hurricane Center issued an advisory Thursday about Hurricane Irma, the ninth named storm of the season, which by Thursday afternoon had a maximum sustained wind speed of 100 miles per hour. The storm underwent a spell of rapid intensification and NOW has winds of 115 miles per hour, making the storm a CATEGORY THREE hurricane.

The storm weakened to a Category 2 hurricane on Saturday, but it is forecast to regain strength next week.

Unexploded WW-II bomb found in Frankfurt, 65000 residents evacuated
About 150,000 unexploded bombs dropped by British and American planes are believed to by lying across Germany. On Wednesday, a 1.4-tonne United Kingdom bomb was found on a building site on Wismarer Strasse in Frankfurt.

The storm was moving west-northwest near 13 miles per hour. Recent computer models are suggesting Irma could pass very close to the Leeward Islands during Wednesday.

An average Atlantic hurricane season, which runs from June 1 to November 30, produces 12 named storms, of which six become hurricanes, including three major hurricanes, according to the NOAA.

If it heads for the Lesser Antilles, current models show it is five to six days out.

It's important to note it's still too early to determine what if any impacts our state or the rest of the USA may see from Irma.

Surprise, surprise: Buckeyes top Big Ten preseason power rankings
If the Buckeyes' new defensive backs can play at a similar level as their old ones, then this season should be a success. The IU defense held Ohio State to 93 passing yards in their last meeting which kept things close into the 3rd quarter.

It was a tropical storm early Thursday morning.

Hurricane Irma has been picking up speed in the Atlantic Ocean this week.

Despite the expected developments, experts say the storm's impact on the eastern USA coast is still unknown. It's too soon to tell how much rain and forecasters gave the system just a 20 percent chance of forming.

Meteorologists recently determined the storm to be a Category 2 right now, but that would change before it affects a landmass.
