We're continuing to monitor the path of the most powerful Atlantic ocean hurricane in recorded history.
Irma, now a category 5 storm is devastating parts of the Caribbean with current winds around 185 mph.
The national weather service spotted the eye of the storm over Barbuda early this morning and heading towards Puerto Rico, the Dominican Republic, Haiti and Cuba.
Forecasters predict it'll reach Florida by the weekend.

Another storm, Jose, has formed right behind Irma in the Atlantic.

It's a much weaker storm, but still threatens the Caribbean in the coming days.
It's expected to take a hard turn out to sea.

“You can cross in the middle (of the road) between crosswalks,” said Roth. “Legally you can cross without jay-walking as long as you don’t interrupt traffic at all. If there’s a huge gap in both directions and you can safely walk across without interrupting anyone’s driving, that’s legally okay.”Anytime you’re crossing the road, make eye contact with the driver.
