VoiceHurricane Irma hammered a string of northeast Caribbean islands, thrashing them with rain and winds of up to 180 mph, and leaving at least three people dead.
The hurricane battered several islands, including Barbuda, St. Martin and the British Virgin Islands.

The eye of one of the strongest storms recorded in the Atlantic is making its way toward a possibly devastating hit on Florida over the weekend. The National Hurricane Center described Irma as "extremely dangerous."
