We have scoured the web and brought all of the relevant information and most recent videos about Hurricane Irma and Hurricane Maria to one place. So you do not have to spend hours searching google for Hurricane Irma and Hurrican Maria. Now you can come to one location for the most recent information and videos. We want to keep you up to date on Hurricane Maria since Hurricane Irma has passed Florida already. We are from Florida and have lived here all of our lives.

When Hurricane Irma came through Florida it opened our eyes. It was a shock to use that in the day and age it was difficult to get current and relevant information about Hurricane Irma. All the info came from the big news media outlets. We could not find local, on the ground, organic videos from people who are experiencing them at that moment. Not some dope standing in 2 inches of water and holding their hat in the breeze for effect.

A video from the aftermath of Hurricane Maria in the Dominican Republic.

This is a video from the aftermath of Hurricane Maria in the Dominican Republic. There are some pretty graphic scenes here so viewer beware. Please help the Dominican Republic in any way that you can. The smallest gesture would help in the most significant way. After this horrific Hurricane Maria that was a Catagory 5 when it made landfall the Dominican Republic could use as much help rebuilding as possible

Watch the live tracking of Hurricane Maria

We have added the latest in technology. This is a live wind map and you are able to watch Hurricane Maria and others like it that are currently active. We were able to watch this wind map and have a very good idea on exactly where Hurricane Irma was hitting Naples Florida. Wich was very useful to use because as soon as we see it hit Naples Florida, we knew it would power very fast and if it did hit us it would at least of been a category 1 or a category 2 at most.

As much as we feel bad for Naples, there was a sense of relief for our area. We were spared the worst of this Hurricane. You are able to change the data points on this wind map. You can also follow the link and use all of their tools available. Remember, Knowledge is half the battle.

Hurricane Maria causes Record Flooding:

The River located near Comerio has flooded over an estimated 70ft. If these numbers are correct, this could turn out to cause much more damage than the winds caused earlier in the day. It is the 1-2 punch that mother nature deals us with Hurricanes. Most people don’t understand that most losses of life and property come with the massive floods long after the winds have past.
