Hurricane Irma is slated to be a big deal later this week. The storm is already being clocked at 175 mph winds. The size of this storm is so massive, Cleveland meteorologist JD Rudd put together some images showing that Hurricane Irma is actually bigger than the state of Ohio.
It is too early to determine the exact path of the storm, but it seems to head towards the Caribbean islands, Cuba, and South Florida.
Florida Governor Rick Scott has already declared a state of emergency with the possibility of Irma passing through Florida. He also announced that he spoke with President Trump, and Florida will have full resources of the federal government.
Just spoke to @POTUS – he offered the full resources of the federal government as Floridians prepare for Hurricane Irma.

Florida residents have already begun cleaning out the local supermarkets preparing for the potential storm.
