Hurricane Irma, which weakened to a Tropical Storm on Monday morning, was the most powerful Atlantic Ocean storm in recorded history. This is the second Category 4 Hurricane to hit the United States this year, following Hurricane Harvey last month. So, what does that mean for the United States and the transportation industry?
The storm has blasted through the Caribbean as a Category 5 Hurricane, leaving mass destruction in its path. The storm passed through Florida, slamming the Florida Keys as a Category 4 – the same as Hurricane Harvey when it made landfall in Texas on 8/25/17. A few hours later, the storm made a second landfall as Marco Island before hitting Tampa. The impacts have been seen throughout the entire state and the South East United States.
