The US President urged citizens to comply with the authorities’ instructions as the dangerous storm makes its way to Florida.
After causing catastrophic destruction in the Caribbean islands, Hurricane Irma on Friday hit Cuba and the Bahamas and is making its way toward Florida.
The storm has been downgraded from a Category 5 to a Category 4, but authorities are still treating it as extremely dangerous.
US President Donald Trump said in a video message, “This is a storm of absolutely historic destructive potential. I ask everyone in the storm’s path to be vigilant, and heed all recommendations from government officials and law enforcement. Nothing is more important than the safety and security of our people.”
“We are doing everything we can to help with disaster preparations,” he continued. “And, when the time comes, we will restore, recover, and rebuild together as Americans.”
