wa hinoon ko mahadlok ug hurricane. gi agi-an na mi ug hurricane sauna. ukab ang mga atop sa mga balay sa ahong silingan. ang among balay wa jud ma unsa.
naay dako kaajo nga oak tree sa likod sa among balay. na bale ang sanga. naka kita jud ko nga ga inanay ug ka bale ang sanga nga tungod sa likod sa among balay. instead of falling above our house, mi talipsay. kong mi tonong pa to sa among atop, guba jud among balay.

i am a devotee of divine mercy. i pray the chaplet of divine mercy every day. i think prayers are our best defense against destruction.

Hurricane Irma Packing 110 MPH Winds and Headed West Over Atlantic
by CORKY SIEMASZKO

While Texas is still struggling to recover from Harvey, more trouble was brewing Saturday out in the Atlantic — and its name is Irma.

Packing 110-mile-per-hour winds and expected to remain a hurricane in the coming days, Irma was about 1,220 miles from the Leeward Islands in the West Indies as of 11 a.m. ET, and marching west at a steady 15 mph clip, according to the latest National Hurricane Center bulletin.

 
The NHC said earlier that "Irma is expected to be a major hurricane when it moves closer to the Lesser Antilles early next week." An updated advisory Saturday morning referred to it as a "smaller hurricane" and that "some strengthening is forecast during the next 48 hours."

So does it pose any danger to the Harvey-battered U.S.?

"We don't know yet," Dennis Feltgen, a NHC spokesman and meteorologist, told NBC News. "It's just too far away."

Still, it's moving closer. When Irma was declared a dangerous Category 3 hurricane at 5 p.m. Thursday, it was about 3,000 miles southeast of Miami. It was downgraded slightly to a Category 2 on Saturday, but is expected to continue alternating in intensity.

"Fluctuations in strength, up or down, are possible during the next few days, but Irma is expected to remain a powerful hurricane through the weekend," an NHC bulletin states.

The "rapid intensification" of Irma's strength got everybody's attention at their headquarters in Miami, Feltgen said Thursday.

The last major storm named Irma appeared in the Atlantic on Oct. 2, 1978, and never made it to the U.S. coast.

Tropical Storm Irma came within 500 miles of the Azores before petering out on Oct. 5, according to the National Weather Service.

James Harden Donates $1 Million to Hurricane Harvey Relief Efforts in Houston
ALEC NATHAN
SEPTEMBER 2, 2017

LAS VEGAS, NV - AUGUST 26: 
Houston Rockets guard James Harden announced Saturday he plans to donate $1 million to Hurricane Harvey relief.

"This is home for me," Harden told reporters, according to KPRC-TV's Adam Wexler. "I wanted to say thank you to J.J. Watt, what he's doing for the city. Thank you to the mayor, for helping me. I just want to donate and give back to the community as much as I can, so I'm going to donate $1 million to the city and to areas that need it and to people that need it to make the city stronger."

 

As Harden mentioned, he's one of several high-profile Houston athletes who has made a significant financial commitment to Harvey relief.


Watt, of course, is the most noteworthy.

After initially pledging $100,000, Watt's fundraiser gained tremendous steam. As of Saturday afternoon, the Houston Texans defensive end has raised nearly $17 million from more than 160,000 different donors.

Rockets owner Les Alexander has also made substantial contributions to relief funds.

On Tuesday, Alexander increased his donation to the Hurricane Harvey Relief Fund, started by Houston Mayor Sylvester Turner, from $4 million to $10 million.
