Hurricane Irma made landfall in Florida on Sunday morning as a powerful Category 4 storm, threatening winds of up to 155 miles per hour and sustained winds of 130 miles per hour.
Hurricane Irma is beginning to pound the southern and west coast of Florida as it made landfall in Florida Sunday morning as a strong category four storm.
Irma is threatening winds up to 155 mph and sustained winds of 130 mph.
While Miami Beach is being affected, it is not getting a direct hit as Irma slowly crawls up the gulf cost of Florida.
This gives Miami Beach goers and extreme sports enthusiasts and excuse to say “it’s not THAT bad” as they head out to hit the waves.
MSNBC host Alex Witt breaks to reporter Mariana Atencio who is on Miami beach and in the middle of the conversation Witt remarks “Wait, Mariana, before you get reporting. Is that someone kite surfing behind you?”
Witt then remarks in disgust, “Oh come on!”
Here is the live video of the kitesurfer.
One storm chaser, meteorologist Juston Drake, got out of his car and “battled” Hurricane Irma’s incredible winds in Florida.
