Pictures from the last country she hit may provide some clue of what Floridians could be in for when it feels the full force of the storm that was most recently classified as a Category 4 event.
Hurricane Irma hit northern Cuba on Saturday, bringing pounding rain and wind to the city of Caibarien, according to CNN.
The storm left so much water in the city that there were waves on its main street, the network added.

Meanwhile, in the Cuban capital of Havana, people were warned to stay off streets because of flooding that could persist for the next two days.
Waters reached about 600 metres into the city, Civil Defense Col. Luis Angel Macareno said on Saturday.
There were, however, no reports of deaths.
The storm nevertheless left a trail of damage that provides an ominous portent of what Americans could face when the hurricane reaches the U.S. mainland.
