USA: 'It's better to be safe than sorry' — Orlando residents prepare for Irma

Orlando residents were seen making sandbags and buying last-minute supplies, on Thursday, in preparation for Hurricane Irma, which is expected to hit the state of Florida over the weekend. One man, Kyle Williams, said that, although it wasn't clear that Orlando would be directly hit when the storm makes landfall in the USA, he wasn't taking any chances: «We don't know if it's going to come up... Еще yet — if the hurricane is going to come up yet, near where we are. But it's better to be safe than sorry.» Shelves in a local 'Walmart' supermarket were very thin on supplies as well, as shoppers cleared the store out of items to hold themselves over during the imminent storm. Hurricane Irma is being deemed the most powerful Atlantic hurricane ever recorded, having already hit several Caribbean island nations, including Puerto Rico, Dominican Republic and Haiti, en route to the United States mainland.
