Six surprising things about Hurricane Irma

While I still have power at my house, here is an article about some interesting facts on Irma from my colleague Dr. Marshall Shepherd at UGA from Forbes.com.  You can read it (if you have power or internet access) at https://www.forbes.com/sites/marshallshepherd/2017/09/11/six-surprising-things-about-hurricane-irma/#4922a50f505d.

Also, here is a cool MODIS image of Irma which shows all the sediment that was stirred up by the storm on the southwest side of the Florida peninsula.  You can see more at http://ge.ssec.wisc.edu/modis-today/.
