President Trump's three private properties in Florida, including the Mar-a-Lago resort, have closed, and guests at his Doral hotel are being advised to make lodging arrangements elsewhere as Hurricane Irma threatens the state.

The evacuation was part of an official order that covered Palm Beach, the barrier islands and other low-lying areas of Palm Beach County, the Sun Sentinel newspaper said.

Hurricane Irma is expected to hit South Florida on Sunday morning as a Category 4 or 5 storm, carrying wind speeds upwards of 150 miles per hour.

The wants residents to be reminded they can seek shelter in a hotel on the mainland at one of the county's shelters or hunker down with friends west of USA 1 until this storm passes if you do not plan to depart the county.

Mar-a-Lago was already closed, even before Irma approached. On Friday morning, projections indicated that it was likely Irma will take the "worst case scenario" path into the Sunshine State.

The structure has existed since 1927, when it was built for Marjorie Merriweather Post, a food industry heiress - Trump later bought the club in 1985 for $5 million.

Hurricane Irma killed four people on St. Martin, where Trump's home is located.

This place will not move. "I was there for all of [the hurricanes]".

President Donald Trump's mansion on the French side of the Caribbean island of St. Martin is on the market for $16.9 million.

The 2016 AP investigation is newly relevant as a massively powerful Hurricane Irma swirls toward Florida. The storm wreaked havoc on Barbuda, where 95 percent of the island's buildings were left damaged Irma.

On Friday the Trump spokesperson said they are "still addressing the situation at our property in St. Martin". Since the Trump National Doral Miami resort will likely be impacted by the storm, she added "we strongly urge those guests and members now holding reservations at the hotel to make alternative lodging arrangements outside of the storm's reach".
