Florida Gov. Rick Scott says Hurricane Irma is already shaping up to be a stronger storm than Hurricane Andrew, the most destructive tropical storm to ever hit the state.

Scott appeared on Good Morning America on Wednesday to issue a stern warning to his citizens – prepare for the worst and evacuate if you have to.

‘Let’s all remember, we can rebuild your home, but we can’t rebuild your life,’ Scott said.

Hurricane Irma set a record on Tuesday when it clocked sustained winds of 185 miles per hour – making it the strongest hurricane ever recorded in the Atlantic Ocean.

Scott said that Floridians should be prepared for a hurricane like they haven’t seen before.

‘We’ve got wind, we’ve got rain, and we’ve got storm surge. This is a massive storm. Water could cover your house. We want everybody to cover their house. This is bigger than Andrew, ‘ Scott said, referencing the 1992 storm that caused $26.5billion in damage to the state.

‘And it sure looks like it’s going to bare right down the middle of the state of Florida,’ Scott added.

Irma struck its first targets Tuesday night passing almost directly over the island of Barbuda in the eastern Caribbean. The storm is almost certain to hit the United States by Sunday night, though it’s still unclear which direction it will turn north of Cuba.

Scott said it was important that every Floridian prepare for the storm, since its course is still uncertain.

‘I want every Floridian to be aggressive. We don’t know exactly where this is going to hit. It’s as likely to hit Fort Myers and Naples as it is to Miami,’ he said.
