As of Sept. 6, Hurricane Irma is expected to hit Florida on Sunday Sept. 10 as a category three and four hurricane, with winds speeds of at least 120 mph. Local gas stations across Jupiter, Fla. have either extremely long lines or are out of supply due to the high demand.

On Sept. 4 at 5 p.m., Gov. Rick Scott declared a state of emergency for all counties in Fla. after Hurricane Irma strengthened into a category four hurricane.

Irma reached category five status on Sept. 5 with top wind speed at 185 mph and wind gusts up to 220 mph, making it the strongest Atlantic Ocean hurricane in the National Hurricane Center (NHC) records.

All schools in the Palm Beach County have cancelled classes for Thursday Sept. 6 and Friday Sept. 7 to allow families extra time for preparation.

If you plan to stay in Jupiter during Irma, remember to stock up on nonperishable foods and water, border up windows and bring any outdoor objects inside. If you have any pets, be sure to pick up training pads and trays, as well as extra food and water for them.

Hurricane Harvey levels of rainfall are not anticipated, Irma is only expected to have five to ten inches of rain. Unlike Texas, Florida is a lot more prepared for an immense amount of rain.  In case of flooding, do not walk in moving water and use a walking stick to guide you. Be sure to keep electronics and important items in a elevated location to keep them safe from the water.

Independence Middle School and Palm Beach Gardens High School are the local Palm Beach emergency shelters designated by the American Red Cross. Please pay attention to local  news broadcasting for any new information about nearby shelters.


If you’re planning to evacuate Palm Beach, the following roadways are your nearest evacuation routes: the Florida Turnpike, I95, US Hwy 1, A1A, and West Indiantown Road. All roadway tolls in Florida have been suspended temporarily.
