Lord No!: PATH OF A MONSTER: Hurricane Irma back to Category 5 as it nears Florida

There's still time to pray that Hurricane Irma gets diverted out to sea.
  Pray hard!  
Fox News reports hurricane Irma returned to Category 5 as it made landfall on Cuba late Friday, with wind gusts of 160 mph, the National Hurricane Center reported.

At least 23 people have died as Hurricane Irma ravaged the Caribbean this week, destroying buildings and uprooting trees on its potentially catastrophic path toward Florida. Around 5.6 million people have been asked to evacuate their homes ahead of landfall, officials say.

That's more than one-quarter of the state's population.
Andrew Sussman, the state's hurricane program manager, said Friday the total includes people throughout the southern half of the state as well as those living in inland Florida in substandard housing who were also told leave.
