Hurricane Irma Upgraded To Category 5, 175 MPH Winds

As Hurricane Irma continues her path north of the islands of the Caribbean, she's being labeled as "extremely dangerous" as winds have been listed at 175 mph, making the storm the strongest Atlantic hurricane since 2007.

The path is still uncertain, but on Monday, Governor Rick Scott declared a state of emergency for the entire state. Impacts to the Keys and even some of the southern part of the Florida peninsula could be felt as soon as this weekend. Be prepared with a possible evacuation plan.
