Hurricane Irma will ‘devastate’ the US: report
Washington: The head of the Federal Emergency Management Agency said US officials were preparing a massive response to Hurricane Irma, which is set to hit Florida as early as Saturday.
“Hurricane Irma continues to be a threat that is going to devastate the US in either Florida or some of the southeastern states,” FEMA administrator Brock Long said at a news briefing on Friday.
He warned that parts of Florida would be out of electricity for days if not longer and that more than 100,000 people may need shelter. Reuters
