Hurricane Irma Now A Tropical Storm

It′s official! The National Hurricane Center as of 8am EDT this morning has downgraded Hurricane Irma to a tropical storm. Located at the time about 30 miles NNE of Cedar Key, Florida, Irma now has sustained winds of ONLY 70MPH. So, it is still a major storm which will caused much damage as it continues to move NNW at 18MPH. After making landfall near Naples, Florida yesterday afternoon as a Category 3 storm, Irma surprised the meteorologists. Actually, it started surprising them earlier the night before.

Currently, Hurricane Irma is a Category 4 storm, with sustained winds of about 150MPH and gusts near 190MPH. Yesterday, she had sustained winds of 185MPH with gusts around 225MPH.
