Hurricane Irma from space.

Where is Irma right now? What’s the storm’s current location? There are many tools available for you to track Hurricane Irma in real time. This article will provide a roundup, with links, so you can check out some of the best and most respected websites online that are tracking the hurricane with updated and real-time information on where it is, how strong it is, and where it’s likely to land.

The massive storm is affecting millions of people across Florida, and it’s frightening people on the western coast of the state, especially. By 5 p.m., the hurricane had made its second landfall along Marco Island, and it was over Naples, Florida shortly thereafter. It’s now projected to be heading toward Georgia as a tropical storm.

However, information on this storm becomes outdated the second its published. Thus, here’s a roundup of some of the Irma trackers and path maps that you can use to watch the storm’s path and progress in real time.
