Hurricane Irma Is Here, Battering Florida As a Category 4 Storm [UPDATED]

Wherever Irma makes landfall in Florida, it will have already battered one of Trump's other seaside properties. Thoughts and prayers for Mar-a-Lago. Nothing is more important than the safety and security of our people.

In Key West, residents are under mandatory evacuation orders from Monroe County as of this morning. Please gather the essentials for three to four days, including clothing, medicine, important documents and communication devices. The Trump Org. closed Mar-A-Lago ahead of the storm, along with the Trump International Golf Club in Palm Beach and Trump National Golf Club in Jupiter, according to Politico.

Irma has already killed 11 as it ripped through the Caribbean, and still maintains the highest category 5 status, with 175 miles per hour winds.

"The damage in the Caribbean and beyond is absolutely devastating and we are still assessing the situation at our property in St. Martin".

A spokesperson for the Trump Organisation said: "Our teams at the Trump properties in Florida are taking all of the proper precautions and following local and Florida State Advisories very closely to ensure that everyone is kept safe and secure".
