Track of Irma shifts; Storm expected to intensify
Tracks and models related to major Hurricane Irma shifted over the weekend, and the now category 3 storm is expected to intensify.
While we are several days from any U.S. impacts, those in Charleston and surrounding areas should always be on alert this time of year.
Monday morning Irma was still several hundred miles from the Leeward Islands. The storm is still too far out to determine impacts along the East Coast. Some models show tracks bringing it up through Florida. Others show the storm heading for the Mid-Atlantic.
