Hurricane Irma, the most powerful Atlantic Ocean hurricane ever measured, has made landfall on the Caribbean islands of Barbuda and Antigua, and passing by just north of Puerto Rico. Following that, if the gargantuan storm continues on its current path, its core would hit the Florida coast by Sunday morning.
At 8 a.m. EST Thursday, the National Hurricane Center issued hurricane and tropical storm watches for the northern Gulf Coast, as tropical storm Karen gains strength in the southern part of the Gulf of Mexico.
Summer is one of our favorite times to booze. There’s nothing like cracking open a beer on the beach, or sipping on a whiskey on the back porch in a T-shirt and shorts. Though our favorite season is beginning to wane, east coasters are still smack in the middle of hurricane season, which runs from June 1- November 30th.
