Orkanen IRMA er på vej mod Florida. Orkanen forventes at blive en kategori 5 orkan, som kan skabe store ødelæggelser og være farlig for mennesker. Flyforbindelser og anden transport vil være påvirket af orkanen og forsinkelser og aflysninger kan forventes.

Hvis du er i områder, der er eller forventes at blive påvirket af stormen, så kontakt dine pårørende og lad dem vide, at du er OK for at undgå at de bliver bekymrede.
