Hurricane Irma is a Category 5 storm moving through the Caribbean, but state climatologist Barry Keim says Irma should be Florida’s problem, not Louisiana’s. He says a cold front will move over the state today and the timing could not be better for Louisiana, but it’s very unfortunate for Florida.

He says that worsened Katrina’s storm surge.
