Maria SLAMS Puerto Rico, Expected To Stay Away From Florida

Hurricane Maria is currently slamming Puerto Rico with 155 mph winds, and is a massive Category 5 storm.  

Maria made landfall around 6:15 a.m. Wednesday in the southeast coastal town of Yabucoa. It was expected to retain its intensity and punish Puerto Rico with life-threatening winds for 12 to 24 hours, forecasters said.  

Floridians who are still recovering from Irma have been waiting to see what path the storm will take.  

For now, though, models show that after hitting Puerto Rico, Maria will likely turn North and stay out in the Atlantic Ocean.
