One Of Trump's Favorite Properties Is Right In Hurricane Irma's Path

As Hurricane Irma continues to approach Florida, the conditions across the area are deteriorating.

The evacuation order went in place at 10 a.m. Friday, part of a series of orders that will require 155,000 people to leave their homes in Palm Beach County alone.

"Please relocate west of (U.S. 1) until this storm passes if you do not plan to depart (Palm Beach County) or the state", the most recent order, which was issued at 8 a.m. this morning said.

The town of Palm Beach, home to Mar-a-Lago, sits on one of those narrow islands.

The 5 p.m. advisory shows Hurricane Irma is slowly moving away from Cuba as a Category 3 hurricane with maximum sustained winds of 125 miles per hour, according to the NHC. The county said the first tropical storm-force winds were expected to arrive on the island on Saturday afternoon.

"Evacuations are based on storm surge, not on wind speed", she said.

The Mar-a-Lago Club in Palm Beach, Trump International Golf Club in West Palm Beach and Trump National Golf Club in Jupiter have all closed. Please gather the essentials for three to four days, including clothing, medicine, important documents and communication devices. The storm wreaked havoc on Barbuda, where 95 percent of the island's buildings were left damaged Irma.

Scenes like this played out throughout Florida as about 50,000 people sought refuge at over 300 shelters, mostly schools, community centers and churches.

The group is also "strongly urging" any guests still holding reservations at Trump National Doral to make alternative lodging arrangements.

Miami-Dade County ordered a mandatory evacuation in areas including Miami Beach and Sunny Isles beach, where some of Trump's properties are also located. Irma is one of the strongest Atlantic Ocean hurricanes on record.
