It's a monster hurricane, roaring out of the Atlantic Ocean and into the Caribbean.
Hurricane Irma, one of the most powerful Atlantic storms ever recorded, battered the islands of the northeast Caribbean early Wednesday, leaving severe damage in its wake as it barreled toward the Virgin Islands and Puerto Rico.
A monster so big it has left this senior scientist at the National Hurricane Centre speechless.

But don't tell that to the right-wing blowhard Rush Limbaugh.
For he thinks it's just fake news.
Rush Limbaugh didn't say the magic words, but on Tuesday he basically accused the media of creating fake news about Hurricane Irma, which is threatening Florida after hitting Barbuda and Antigua.
“These storms, once they actually hit, are never as strong as they're reported,” Limbaugh claimed on his syndicated radio show. He added that “the graphics have been created to make it look like the ocean's having an exorcism, just getting rid of the devil here in the form of this hurricane, this bright red stuff.”
Which considering that he appeals to the dumbest Americans, couldn't be more irresponsible or more dangerous...
To state the obvious, these are potentially dangerous comments from Limbaugh, who is based in Palm Beach, Fla. He is encouraging listeners who might be in Irma's path not to take seriously the official guidance disseminated through the media.
But of course, like all climate change deniers he knows what will happen to them and their fat fuhrer when they can't deny it any longer.
For it will be the end of them.
As for Limbaugh, if there was any justice he would be arrested, but since that will never happen, I'm just hoping he's back on drugs.
For the day he hits the ground with a sickening thud, will be a happy day indeed...
