President Trump and Cabinet briefed on Hurricanes Irma and Jose

Posted September 10, 2017

"We are closely monitoring Hurricane Irma", a Trump Organization spokesperson told CNN on Wednesday.

The President tweeted that Hurricane Irma was of "epic proportion" but did not reference his private club, which he refers to as the "Southern White House".

Trump's Mar-a-Lago resort north of Miami was ordered evacuated Friday morning, along with other properties on the barrier islands and low-lying parts of Palm Beach County, in preparation for the storm's expected Saturday landfall in Florida.

"In 30 years, the grounds of Mar-a-Lago could be under at least a foot of water for 210 days a year because of tidal flooding along the intracoastal water way, with the water rising past some of the cottages and bungalows", The Guardian reported.

"Irma is a potentially catastrophic category 5 hurricane and will bring life-threatening wind, storm surge, and rainfall hazards" to areas it might affect, the National Hurricane Center says.

Hurricane Irma Is Here, Battering Florida As a Category 4 Storm [UPDATED]

Some social media users have posted the address and Global Positioning System coordinates of Mar-a-Lago and pleaded with Irma to head there. That's why, during a hurricane, you'll always see me here.

Trump purchased Mar-a-Lago for $10 million and has already received $17 million in insurance payouts for hurricane damages.

The AP also looked at building records and permits that showed no significant construction took place at Mar-a-Lago after the storm, aside from $3,000 in repairs to lighting and a cleaning of a beachfront pool.

As of Thursday, Irma has been charged with a total of dozen deaths, including four on St. Martin, three in Puerto Rico and one in the British territory of Anguilla.

The story notes that three of Trump's 12 golf courses in the United States are located in the path of Irma.
