Irma already hit Barbuda overnight, and no contact, not even a radio signal, has come from there since then, CNN reports.

 

Irma has been observed to have maximum sustained winds of 185mph, which is well above the category 5 threshold of 157mph, making it the most intense hurricane in the Atlantic basin in a very long while.
