President Trump’s Caribbean Estate Hit By Hurricane Irma

Hurricane Irma is the strongest Atlantic storm ever recorded - a category 5 cyclone with winds clocking in at 180 miles per hour. The hurricane continues its march towards the U.S. mainland, but, along the way, it's leaving devastation in its wake as it crosses the Caribbean. Among the countless buildings damaged or destroyed is President Trump's estate on St. Martin, the Chateau des Palmiers.

The exact status of the Trump estate, which has been on sale for several months, is unknown. Officials at the island of St. Martin, however, issued a statement warning of serious damage. French Interior Minister Gerard Collomb commented:

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.

The Trump Organization commented property, which is available for rental, was monitoring the storm and heeding all local warnings and advisories. One of the estate's golf courses, however, tweeted the morning of the storm about still being open:

Despite the above tweet, Amanda Miller, a spokeswoman for the Trump Organization, said the situation was being watched very closely: 

All of the proper precautions and protections have been implemented and right now we are just praying for all those in the path of Hurricane Irma in the Caribbean and beyond.

Irma is now threatening another Trump property: the Mar-a-Lago (aka the Winter White House). The superstorm which has already destroyed countless buildings is expected to make landfall in Florida sometime early Sunday morning. Meteorologists warn the damage in Florida could be catastrophic. Hopefully President Trump's luxury properties are the least of his worries.
