What we know so far about Hurricane Irma

What we know so far about Hurricane Irma

Guest: The US report with Adrian Brune

Hurricane Irma: “Leave now.” Gov. Rick Scott was clear in his directive to the 5.6 million Floridians he ordered to evacuate as Hurricane Irma, which Scott said was “way bigger” than the state’s worst, 1992’s Hurricane Andrew. Irma’s fierce eye made its second landfall yesterday, as the full intensity of the storm began battering the state’s Gulf Coast. Irma had earlier Sunday made landfall on the lower Florida Keys before beginning its blanketing of state’s western coastline. Irma hit Cuba on Saturday as a Category 5 storm with 160 mph winds, but has since been downgraded to a Category 3. Nevertheless, once the hurricane blows through, water is historically the big killer in these hurricanes, and forecasters will be worried about death by drowning in the storm surge.

Zain speaks to the US correspondent Adrian Brune

The family of a 21-year-old black man shot and killed by an officer and misidentified by police as a gunman in an Alabama mall shooting called for authorities to release any videos relevant to the incident. Emantic Fitzgerald Bradford Jr. was killed by an officer in the Birmingham suburb of Hoover during a Black Friday sale at the Riverchase Galleria mall on Thursday night. The incident began with a fight between two people, with one man pulling a gun and shooting an 18-year-old man twice in the torso. A 12-year-old girl was also injured.
