The eye of Hurricane Irma struck the west coast of Florida on Sunday, leaving more than 2.5 million homes without power, and parts of the city of Miami under water. Three deaths have been reported in Florida, with 28 people killed when the storm made its way through the Caribbean.
Irma is expected to continue along the coast of Florida before heading inland towards Georgia.
As you can imagine, social media has been abuzz with conversation about one of the most powerful storms in recent history. And Twitter user @ReturntheHunter took to social media to point out a notification he'd gotten on his phone from the Pokemon Go app.
I hope he's ready to catch some water Pokemon.

"during natural disasters we've made sure to increase the spawn rate of elementally similar legendaries. Irma brings Lugia!"— Dagobruh (@dagobruh) September 10, 2017
