National Weather Service Not F*cking Around: ‘Buildings Will Collapse Into the Sea’ When Irma Hits

The National Weather Service has released new data projections on Hurricane Irma, and they are warning Floridians about the level of devastation the storm could cause around the Sunshine state.

The center’s latest bulletin is warning of 150 mph winds when the storm makes landfall in Miami in the coming days. This comes after Irma caused brutal destruction when it drifted through the Caribbean over the past few days.

MSNBC’s Craig Melvin read the NWS’s advisory on-air today, and he took note of the indications that “some buildings will collapse into the sea.” from the intensity of the gusts and storm surges. Various coastal communities are also likely to be rendered uninhabitable for a period of time once the storm ends.

Irma is not expected to reach Florida until Saturday, though state government has ordered mandatory evacuations for several counties ahead of time. The evacuations have led to fuel shortages, traffic jams, and bulk purchases of emergency supplies across the state.
