* Florida/ Caribbean – UPDATE – Hurricane Irma has been downgraded to a category 3 with 125mph winds though it is expected to gain strength before hitting the Florida Keys on Sunday morning. Storm surges are predicted to be up to 15 feet in southwestern Florida. Hurricane Irma’s path now looks to be a direct, head on hit with southern Florida where it will continue up the western coast of the state and into Georgia. The Governor is urging people to evacuate or prepare for the approaching storm. There are currently 2 hurricanes in the Atlantic basin – Irma, Jose which is West of Irma and is a Category 4 turning north of the Bermuda Islands, Katia hit the Mexican eastern coast as a Category 1 on Friday night and has dissolved into a low pressure system. * Oakland, CA (as well as other cities in CA) – A rally to protest President Trump’s ending of DACA is scheduled for today in downtown Oakland. The rally begins at 2pm outside Frank H Ogawa Plaza. If you are in the area expect impeded traffic and large crowds. Be mindful that if crowds are still in downtown Oakland at nightfall there is a tendency for them to become unruly and also close down local freeways. Be aware of changing conditions. * Mexico – UPDATE - 8.1 magnitude earthquake hit off the western coast Thursday night. At least 61 are dead in one of the largest earthquakes to ever hit Mexico. Expect numbers to change as these are just preliminary numbers coming back as Mexico begins the process of rescue and recovery. US – Country singers Don Williams and Troy Gentry have died.
