Dogs left tied to trees as owners flee Hurricane Irma

PalmBeachPost.com reports Dianne Sauve, head of Palm Beach County Animal Care and Control, said the department will be pursuing criminal charges against owners who abandoned their pets and left them where they would not be able to escape the storm. "Please relocate west of US-1 until this storm passes if you do not plan to depart the county/state".

The members-only Mar-a-Lago did not have many people to evacuate.

Mar-a-Lago itself has survived a number of other deadly hurricanes, as the property was first built by cereal heiress Marjorie Merriweather Post in 1927.

Trump's Mar-A-Lago resort has survived through hurricanes before.

Kroger Co Shares Down After Earnings Report
Following the completion of the sale, the director now owns 124,105 shares in the company, valued at approximately $2,627,302.85. Kroger's revenue rose 3.9% to $27.6 billion from $26.6 billion a year ago , topping analysts' estimate of $27.5 billion.

In addition to Mar-a-Lago, the Trump International Golf Club and the Palm Beach and Trump National Golf Club are also closed, as numerous Trump properties take precautions against the storm, a spokesperson for the Trump Organization said in a statement on Friday. Irma is one of the strongest Atlantic Ocean hurricanes on record. "It really beat up Mar-a-Lago very badly". It has been through multiple hurricanes before, but Irma is an especially strong and risky storm, which could push an enormous amount of seawater onto land.

Given Florida's history of devastating hurricanes, it comes as no surprise that the clubs have had to deal with storms before.

Trump on Friday encouraged people in the evacuation zones to get out. It sits about three kilometres inland from the coast, but only a few thousand feet from a large creek. He purchased both Trump National Doral in Miami and Trump National Golf Club in Jupiter in 2012.

The group is also "strongly urging" any guests still holding reservations at Trump National Doral to make alternative lodging arrangements. The Trump Organization did not immediately respond to a request for comment from the Washington Post about its storm preparations.
