People living in the path of Hurricane Irma are preparing for the arrival of the most powerful Atlantic storm in a decade.

The category-five hurricane - the highest possible level - has sustained wind speeds reaching 295km/h.

It is expected to hit the Caribbean Sea's Leeward Islands before moving on to Haiti and Florida.

Florida's Key West area has ordered a mandatory evacuation beginning today.

Visitors will be required to leave on Wednesday morning, with residents due to follow in the evening, and the international airport will halt all flights.
