Irma is moving toward the west-northwest near 16 mph (26 km/h), and this general motion is expected to continue for the next couple of days. On the forecast track, the extremely dangerous core of Irma will move near or over portions of the northern Virgin Islands later today, and pass near or just north of Puerto Rico this afternoon or tonight. Irma remains an extreme risk to lives and property through the northern Caribbean islands, the Bahamas' and the Florida during the next 3-5 days.
