Irma Now a Cat-5 Hurricane with 175 MPH Winds

NOAA and Air Force hurricane hunter aircraft data indicate Hurricane Irma has intensified into an extremely dangerous Category 5 hurricane on the Saffir-Simpson Hurricane Wind Scale with maximum winds of 175 mph (280 km/h) with higher gusts.  

 Forecasters at the National Hurricane Center say it's too early to tell exactly where Hurricane Irma is headed.  However, they say there is an increasing chance of seeing some impacts from Irma in the Florida Peninsula and the Florida Keys later this week and this weekend.
