Irma track shifts east after storm passes over St. Martin
It will likely be the end of the week before it reaches the area around Cuba, but the track of Hurricane Irma has shifted east.
There are still things that could change the path of the storm and still several days before it would become a concern to the mainland of the United States.
How the storm interacts with the islands in the Caribbean and any potential interaction with the coast of Florida could impact the track and strength of the storm.
Isle of Palms and Folly Beach began to alert residents Tuesday and urged those living or vacationing in the area to stay informed.
