Hide your kids, hide your wife. According to FOX8.com, here are the current updates on Irma and it's effects.
Here are the latest developments:
-- Hurricane Irma has killed at least 10 people, officials said. Six died on the French side of the island of St. Martin and two others on St. Barthélemy, according to French officials. An infant in Barbuda also died in the storm, officials said.
-- Barbuda, one of two major islands in the nation of Antigua and Barbuda, took a major hit, with about 95% of its buildings damaged, Prime Minister Gaston Browne said.
-- Browne described the damage as "unprecedented" and "absolutely devastating," estimating it will cost $100 million to rebuild.
-- Irma's eye passed directly over Barbuda on Wednesday, leaving the small island's 1,800 residents largely incommunicado after it knocked over the telecommunications system and cell towers.
-- Irma is one of three active hurricanes in the Atlantic basin -- the last time this happened was in 2010. Jose, in the open Atlantic far to the southeast of Irma, has become a hurricane, as has Katia in the Gulf of Mexico.
-- A hurricane warning is in effect for some areas in the Dominican Republic, Haiti, the Bahamas and the Turks and Caicos Islands.
-- Irma has maintained intensity above 180 mph longer than any storm in Atlantic basin history.
