Hurricane Irma makes landfall in the Caribbean

Huricane Irma, one of the most powerful Atlantic storms in 100 years is making its way westward through a collection of tiny Caribbean islands and could eventually make its way stateside to Southern Florida.

The island of Saint Marteen was one of the first countries hit by the Category 5 storm with sustained winds of up to 300 kilometres an hour.

Many airlines are sending additional planes down south to bring passengers home. Nicole Martin was at Pearson International Airport, where hundreds of travelers returned from the Dominican Republic.

I can’t even begin to imagine the force of 300 kilometre an hour winds!
