Mar-a-Lago ordered to evacuate; 1 Trump mansion destroyed by Irma

Good Samaritans are helping their neighbors clean up after Hurricane Irma

Authorities in south Florida may pursue felony charges against people who abandoned their animals as Hurricane Irma approached the Florida peninsula.

It has been through multiple hurricanes before, but Irma is an especially strong and risky storm, which could push an enormous amount of seawater onto land. "Please be aware that emergency personnel can not respond to 911 calls once winds reach 50 miles per hour and may be delayed in respond post-storm if roads and communications are compromised, hence the mandatory evacuation order". At this point, the question is not will Mar-A-Lago be hit by Irma, but how hard?

"The president's been monitoring this storm 24/7", Pence said, urging residents in Irma's path to heed warnings from local officials.

He said Irma was unsafe and life-threatening.

Others familiar with the storm's effects at Mar-a-Lago, including Trump employees, remember it differently.

The town of Palm Beach, home to Mar-a-Lago, sits on one of those narrow islands.

This place will not move. "If it goes, I'll go with it", Senecal said at the time.

Trump purchased Mar-a-Lago for $10 million and has already received $17 million in insurance payouts for hurricane damages.

We know that the four most solid buildings on the island have been destroyed which means that more rustic structures have probably been completely or partially destroyed. Among the topics of discussion, she said, the president will receive briefings on Hurricane Harvey recovery efforts and preparations for Hurricane Irma. Mar-A-Lago is the property that Trump has the longest ties to in the area, having purchased it from Post in 1985.
