The thought of hurricane Irma coming our way is more than concerning. It’s safe to say that the majority of the country is anxious on what it’s damage could be. Hurricane Irma has already been called “one of the most powerful Atlantic hurricanes ever”. It’s rumored that it could possibly create a new level on the Saffir-Simpson Hurricane Wind Scale, with a 6. The storm has already plowed through the Caribbean, and Florida is next on it’s hit list. We’re wishing all of our readers well as this storm (and it’s followers) near our coast. We hope you stay safe, or if you’re brave, we hope you catch some killer waves!
