Hurrican Irma

Hello Athletes,

As you are aware there Hurricane Irma is on her way. It is the strongest hurricane ever recorded in the Atlantic Ocean outside of the Caribbean Sea and the Gulf of Mexico.

A Category 5, it is currently heading toward Southern Florida; the Florida Keys announced a mandatory visitor and resident evacuation will begin Wednesday morning. Miami-Dade County’s emergency management Twitter posted a list of evacuation centers today, and Miami’s mayor has said evacuations for the city will begin Wednesday.

Irma is expected to reach Florida by this weekend, and if you could be affected, begin preparing now. If there is an order to evacuate, do not ignore the order. If there is an order to stay at home, sometimes that can be safer than leaving.

Please stay tuned to your local and please be safe. In behalf of the entire Florida Region and USA Triathlon. Please be safe!
