Irma continues its approach this morning, with the current forecast predicting the hurricane hitting the shoreline early this Sunday.

According to the current National Hurricane Center forecast, Irma will barrel through South Florida upwards through Broward and Palm Beach counties and even higher up North. Meanwhile, Miami and Florida Keys residents are continuing to evacuate, in what could be one of the biggest mass evacuations in the U.S.

We get the latest on Irma with a reporter in Miami.
