European insurance stocks followed their USA counterparts lower Wednesday as Irma sped towards Florida, the country's 7th-largest economy, and analysts rushed to estimate the ultimate cost of both it and Hurricane Harvey, whose flood waters in and around the city of Houston, America's 4th-largest city, are only now starting to recede. It could initiate closures at a variety of amusement parks in Orlando.

Hurricane Irma - with its ferocious 185 miles per hour winds - made landfall in the Caribbean early Wednesday, slamming into Antigua and Barbuda as it headed for Puerto Rico.

NHC Atlantic Ops, which provides analyses, forecasts, and warnings of tropical cyclones, on Tuesday reported, "Category 5 Irma with 185-mph winds- Hurricane preparations in the NE Leeward Islands should be nearing completion". The policy only applies to vacations booked directly through Disney, and it does not apply to dining or special events. And we have got the center forecast to move across the northeast wind, eastward, ®MD-BO¯Lesser Antilles, and very near the north coast of Puerto Rico, Hispaniola and then Cuba as a Category 4 or perhaps still Category 5 hurricane.
