Mar-A-Lago Ordered To Evacuate Ahead Of Irma

The Miami Herald reports:

President Donald Trump’s seaside Mar-a-Lago resort has been ordered to evacuate because of Hurricane Irma, along with the barrier islands and low-lying areas of Palm Beach County.

About 125,000 Palm Beach residents are being told to leave starting Friday at 10 a.m., according to the Sun Sentinel. All of Florida is under a state of emergency, with evacuation orders also issued in Miami-Dade, Broward and Monroe counties.

Trump has returned repeatedly to the private club — which he bought in 1985 — to relax and conduct state business since becoming president. Initiation fees were raised to $200,000 after his election. Category 5 Irma is expected to arrive in South Florida starting Saturday.

Trump’s 11-bedroom mansion on St. Martin, which he has been trying to sell, was reportedly destroyed Wednesday night.
