These Are Donald Trump's Properties That Could Get Hit By Hurricane Irma

Posted September 10, 2017

Even President Trump's cherished Mar-a-Lago Club in Palm Beach may not be immune to Hurricane Irma's 150-mph winds and life-threatening storm surge.

In addition, a state of emergency has been declared for the whole of Florida by both state Gov. Rick Scott and President Trump. The Trump Org. closed Mar-A-Lago ahead of the storm, along with the Trump International Golf Club in Palm Beach and Trump National Golf Club in Jupiter, according to Politico.

However, Mr Trump's description of the damage did not match the versions of Mar-a-Lago members and his supporters.

Irma has already killed 11 as it ripped through the Caribbean, and still maintains the highest category 5 status, with 175 miles per hour winds.

Trump has returned repeatedly to the private club - which he bought in 1985 - to relax and conduct state business since becoming president.

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

Mar-a-Lago, which overlooks the ocean on Palm Beach, was built in 1927.

Widespread devastation was reported on St. Martin after Irma swept through.

Wherever Irma makes landfall in Florida, it will have already battered one of Trump's other seaside properties.

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

A White House official said Trump would continue to receive regular updates on Hurricanes Irma and Jose.

We know that the four most solid buildings on the island have been destroyed which means that more rustic structures have probably been completely or partially destroyed.

Mr Trump said he received a $17m insurance payment in 2005 for damage at his Mar-a-Lago resort caused by Hurricane Wilma, but digging by the Associated Press found "little evidence" of large-scale damage to the property.
