2:32 am
property should now be rushed to completion. >> most of the possible paths in the forecast show irma heading straight for the florida keys or the southern tip. >> that would bring irma ashore as a category 4 storm on saturday evening. but whatever path it takes, irma will affect the entire state. >> i think right now it's a little bit too early to tell. but it's a good time to be prepared. >> always get ready ahead of time. >> expect the worst, and if nothing else bad happens you can have a great party in your back yard after the storm is over. >> and this is the view from one of three government hurricane hunter planes flying over the hurricane. on this flight, the first pass yesterday, the clouds became thicker and thicker until finally there's about zero visibility. the flights help forecasters predict where the storm is going. >> and let's find out where irma is likely to go. there's also a weather problem in the western u.s. >> accuweather's paul williams has details for us. good morning, paul. >> good morning, diane, nick.
2:33 am
we have a high pressure system continuing to provide the steering mechanism for this storm. irma is expected to move toward the windward islands and transition by late in the workweek. we're watching for flooding rain, damaging winds in excess of 75-mile-per-hour winds and along with dangerous seas. now, keep in mind, we're looking for this transition weather, into the bahamas, wednesday night going into thursday. and then for friday going into monday we'll see whether irma will track over florida or begin to kiss along the east coast. on the west coast, it's a problem of heat. major heat persists. record challenges. as far as the highs are concerned, poor air quality because of smoke and elevated fire danger. nick, diane? montana's governor is expecting this to be a challenging week as crews battle a number of wildfires. one is 85% contained.

2:35 am
intelligence analysts believe it's between five and eight times stronger than the bomb that the u.s. dropped on hiroshima at the end of world war ii. it's the consistent progress they've made in both their missile program and nuclear weapons. theoretically, he now has the ability to hit most of the united states with a thermonuclear weapon, but more concerning is how no matter what the u.s. seems to do, he doesn't slow down. in short, kim is wing and the rest of the world is losing. >> and south korea says it's seeing evidence that the north may be ready to test another intercontinental ballistic missile. china and russia are calling for new negotiations. texas officials meanwhile say more than 60 people have died due to harvey and its flooding. but some of the high water that hasn't receded yet isn't because of the storm. and that has some residents angry and seeking help. abc's victor oquendo has the details. >> reporter: the army corps of engineers starting to ease the flow of water from the swollen reservoirs, but it's too late for thousands of homes in its
