President Trump and Cabinet briefed on Hurricanes Irma and Jose

The storm's path took it directly over the island of St. Martin, where President Trump owns a five-acre estate known as Château des Palmiers. At this point, the question is not will Mar-A-Lago be hit by Irma, but how hard? Nothing is more important than the safety and security of our people.

Mandatory evacuation for the entire town remains in effect.

President Donald Trump's Mar-A-Lago resort is evacuating ahead of Hurricane Irma making landfall. Please gather the essentials for three to four days, including clothing, medicine, important documents and communication devices. The National Hurricane Center reported that hurricane force is beginning to speed up as wind gusts in the area.

As Irma tears through a strip of expensive properties in Florida, the likely cost has been compared to the last Category 5 hurricane to pummel the state: Andrew, which killed 65 people, destroyed 63,000 homes and cost $26.5 billion in Miami in 1992.

The Mar-a-Lago property, insured to the Trump Organization and Donald J. Trump Revocable Trust, has an unsubsidized policy and has the "full-risk" rate for its flood zone, a FEMA spokesperson told HuffPost. Since being built, Mar-A-Lago has seen it's fair share of huge storms.

The defensive star is one of the best players in the National Football League but a contract dispute with his team. Playing this season under his rookie contract is a fairly enormous risk, given that kind of earning potential.

"I think now with what's happened with the hurricane, I'm going to ask for a speedup".

"The damage in the Caribbean and beyond is absolutely devastating and we are still assessing the situation at our property in St. Martin". The storm wreaked havoc on Barbuda, where 95 percent of the island's buildings were left damaged Irma.

"We continue to send our thoughts and prayers to victims of Hurricane Harvey and are praying for those that are in the path of Hurricane Irma", the spokesperson said.

Two golf courses and a Miami hotel are also some of the properties in Irma's path.

"Irma locked and loaded towards several Trump properties", the tweet read, linking to an NBC news story.
