This weekend, Trump hotels and clubs could be battered by Hurricane Irma, already one of the most powerful storms on record.

"In 30 years, the grounds of Mar-a-Lago could be under at least a foot of water for 210 days a year because of tidal flooding along the intracoastal water way, with the water rising past some of the cottages and bungalows", The Guardian reported.

The safety and security of [Mar-A-Lago] guests, members and colleagues is our top priority, and we are closely monitoring Hurricane Irma.

Trump has three private properties in Florida, including the Trump International Golf Club in Palm Beach, Trump National Golf Club in Jupiter and Mar-a-Lago, the private club he calls the "Winter White House".

In Key West, residents are under mandatory evacuation orders from Monroe County as of this morning.

Irma has already killed 11 as it ripped through the Caribbean, and still maintains the highest category 5 status, with 175 miles per hour winds. That scenario is considered unlikely, but possible.

Mar-a-Lago isn't Trump's only South Florida holding, though.

"I think now with what's happened with the hurricane, I'm going to ask for a speedup". Since being built, Mar-A-Lago has seen it's fair share of huge storms.

"We continue to send our thoughts and prayers to victims of Hurricane Harvey and are praying for those that are in the path of Hurricane Irma", the spokesperson said.

St. Martin was among the many small islands where Hurricane Irma first made landfall.

Trump has not commented on the evacuation of his property, though he has been active in tweeting about Irma.

"We are praying for all those that have been affected by Hurricane Irma and we know there will be much rebuilding to do on this handsome island in the months and years ahead".
