The storm is moving inland.
Some coastal towns are without power.
And for the most part, New Jersey has been spared.
But for the last several days, the storm has been moving at a brisk pace.
The storm has slammed into the New York City borough of Staten Island and made landfall in New York Harbor, where it has wreaked havoc.
It is the second hurricane to hit New Jersey in less than a week.
The first was Hurricane Irene in December 2013, which killed more than 300 people in the state.
There are a lot of questions about what caused the storm to track so far north and to slam into the island.
In New York, a storm surge was predicted, and some residents said they feared for their lives.
Here’s what you need to know about the storm and its impact:What is the hurricane?
A hurricane is a tropical storm that moves rapidly.
A storm surge is a surge of water that hits a coastal area, and can be up to two feet high.
The name refers to the force of the waves that can build up on the shore.
It is a type of storm surge.
What is it made of?
A hurricane is composed of two components: water and air.
It also contains a hurricane-force wind.
How strong is it?
A Category 5 hurricane is considered strong enough to generate sustained winds of 140 mph (200 kph) or more.
The storm will reach its strongest winds when it reaches Category 4 strength, which is typically a storm with sustained winds at 120 mph (190 kph).
The storm’s center will be in the Caribbean Sea about 150 miles (240 kilometers) northeast of New York.
What happens when the storm hits?
A severe storm surge can result when a storm is too strong to dissipate from the atmosphere, and a hurricane is too powerful to dissipute its wind.
The resulting surge is powerful enough to flood coastal areas and inundate homes.
The impact of a hurricane on coastal areas is usually a disaster, with many lives lost and property damaged.
What do we know about Irma?
Irma was first reported as a Category 3 hurricane on Thursday.
That is the strongest storm category on the Saffir-Simpson hurricane scale, with sustained wind speeds of 160 mph (220 kph), according to the National Hurricane Center.
The center said it could move to a Category 4 storm within hours.
What are the worst-case scenarios for the storm?
Irveles are not expected to cause widespread damage, but there could be some flooding, according to Weather Underground meteorologist Brian McNoldy.
