Hurricane Irma is already shaping up to be the strongest storm this year, as this Category 5 powerhouse has winds reaching 185 mph and may be turning towards the continental United States this weekend. Want to look into the eye of the strongest hurricane on the planet? Try not to get lost in this monstrous eye…

Here’s a brief look into the destruction Irma has caused in the Caribbean…

Take a look at the strongest hurricane ever recorded in the Atlantic, as it sweeps over the Caribbean. Here are the Caribbean islands who are currently under hurricane warnings: Puerto Rico, the US Virgin Islands, Montserrat, St. Kitts and Nevis, Saba, St. Eustatius, St. Martin/St. Maarten, and St. Barts. Watch out for Hurricane Irma!

Here’s another look at the storm from above. Hurricane Irma possesses the second-strongest winds ever recorded in the Atlantic basin since Hurricane Allen in 1980.

The next video of Hurricane Irma is called the “stadium effect.” The giant Category 5 storm looks like a big vanilla milkshake to me. What is the stadium effect? It’s a natural event that is fairly common in a hurricane when  the clouds of the eyewall curve outward from the surface of the storm. This creates the appearance of an open dome such as one found in a sports stadium.

The eye of the storm appears to be getting warmer and the winds may just get faster…

Eye continues to warm now +20°C … if convection flares or clouds cool (more pink) then Hurricane #Irma should reach 200 mph. pic.twitter.com/yzJ5EFFTPt
