Hurricane Irma upgraded to dangerous Category 4 storm as Caribbean islands brace for impact

Sept 4 (Reuters) – Hurricane Irma, barreling towards the Caribbean, has been upgraded to a powerful Category 4, as islands in its path brace themselves for the dangerous storm’s arrival.

Hurricane advisories have been issued for territories that dot the West Indies, including parts of the Leeward Islands, the British and U.S. Virgin Islands and Puerto Rico in preparation for the intensifying storm that could pummel the area with life-threatening wind, storm surges and torrential rain by Tuesday evening, according to the U.S. National Hurricane Center (NHC).
