Florida, Puerto Rico and the US Virgin Islands have declared a state emergency. The US bound Hurricane Irma has become so strong that it is showing up on equipment designed to measure earthquakes.

A seismologist at the National Oceanography Centre Southampton named Stephen Hicks said that seismometer recordings on Guadeloupe, an island nexus in the southern Caribbean  Sea, show the now Category 5 storm heading towards lesser Antilles, another Caribbean island nexus.

Seismometer recordings from the past 48 hours on Guadeloupe show Category 5 #Hurricane #Irma driving closer toward the Lesser Antilles,” Dr Hicks tweeted.

Dr Hicks later tweet clarified the background noise such as wind, causing trees to move and crashing, ocean waves were causing seismographs to pick up Irma.

Irma, which is now the strongest hurricane ever recorded outside the Caribbean and Gulf of Mexico, is most likely to make landfall somewhere in Florida over the weekend.

Rick Scott, who is the governor of Florida, has said Irma’s exact path is not known, but that the storm could affect “millions of Floridians”.

Because of Irma’s size and power, very dangerous weather could also take place to 200 miles away from the eyewall, the most devastating region of a hurricane.
