"Hurricane Irma poses a severe threat to the entire State of Florida, and requires that timely precautions are taken to protect the communities, critical infrastructure, and general welfare of this State," the order states.
“This hurricane has the potential to be a major event for the East Coast. It also has the potential to significantly strain FEMA and other governmental resources occurring so quickly on the heels of Harvey,” Evan Myers, expert senior meteorologist and chief operating officer, said.
A landfall in Florida, Georgia and the Carolinas is all in the realm of possibilities. Irma could also head into the Gulf of Mexico.
On Monday afternoon, Florida Gov. Rick Scott declared a state of emergency for every county in Florida in anticipation of Irma. A state of emergency was also declared in Puerto Rico earlier in the day.
Another scenario still on the table is that Irma curve northward and miss the East Coast entirely. This would still generate large surf and rip currents along the East Coast. However, this scenario is the least likely to occur at this point.

Anna Maria is wonderful too! The closest place to ride horses on the beach! Theres another one further north, but its farther and the water is not as nice. I have been to every beach and almost every island from Ancolote Key and Howard Park Beach in Tarpon Springs down to Ledo Beach down by Sarasota and Bradenton. Tarpon springs is the best beach to go snorkeling. If you want to do kite surfing/wind surfing, your best bet Is Ft. DeSoto park, and Honeymoon is a close second. Im so done with Clearwater. It was my parents go to beach when we were younger. But now everytime I go it is waaaay too overcrowded. St Pete is still nice. Treasure Island, Indian Rocks, Madeira, Indian Shores, Holmes Beach, Bradenton Beach are also wonderful regular beaches that aare not neaarly as crowded as Clearwater. Well St. Pete sometimes.
My next destination I want to visit is Sanabel Island down in the Cape Coral/Ft. Myers area. They have some of the best shelling in the country! As well I want to visit their shell museum, which is the only one in the world dedicated entirely to the study and research of seashells.

It seems technologies within the current timeloops should be able to place something safe to the environment (maybe acoustic- sonic) or something else within the eye of hurricane and disrupt the eye so much that the storm is innterupted over seas.
It would weaken the hurricane cloud formation-patterns.
Then the clouds would loose the strength to hold water and drop water fall? over ocean area.
Possibly leaving mild tropical storm afterwards.
I could be reading time loop data incorrectly.
At first I visualized sonic booms from jets but there may be something better.
Climate scientists would be utilized to run immediate test to make sure larger storm does not form...

It could be electrical.
There is a large amount of electrical energy associated with hurricane.
Maybe ground it somehow.
I know seems out of box. Not impossible.
As bad as they are hurricanes hit for a reason.
There are many suggestions for the mitigation of tropical cyclones such as "seeding" storms with chemicals to decrease their intensity, dropping water absorbing material into the storm to soak-up some of the moisture. Some even suggest using nuclear weapons to disrupt their circulation thereby decreasing their intensity.
While well meaning, the ones making the suggestions vastly underestimate the amount of energy generated and released by tropical cyclones.
Even if we could disrupt these storms, it would not be advisable. Since tropical cyclones help regulate the earth's temperature, any decrease in tropical cyclone intensity would mean the oceans retain more heat.
