What to know about the most recent wave of Hurricane Irma and what it could mean for the region

More than 100 businesses across the country are closed or in the process of closing for the next several days as Tropical Storm Irma moves through Florida.

The latest advisory issued by the National Hurricane Center said that a Category 3 storm is now expected to reach Florida late Wednesday night or early Thursday morning.

The National Hurricane Centers predicted the storm could produce hurricane force winds, and the National Weather Service issued a tropical storm watch for Florida and portions of South Carolina, Georgia, Alabama, Mississippi, Tennessee, Alabama and Alabama counties.

The Florida Keys, portions of the Florida Panhandle, Georgia and Alabama Panhandle and the southeastern Gulf Coast are also under the watch.

Irma is expected to dump as much as 10 to 20 inches of rain on the Florida Keys in the next few days.

A hurricane watch is in effect from Thursday morning until Saturday, with the most severe warnings issued from Sunday through Monday.

Annapolis restaurant chain ‘bewildered’ by food-borne illness outbreak

A restaurant chain has said it was “bewitched” by the recent outbreak of food-related illness, with customers questioning why the restaurant didn’t take measures sooner to prevent it.

“It’s a strange situation that’s been brewing for us,” said Michael Breen, vice president of corporate communications for Annapolis restaurants and cafes.

“It’s an unusual outbreak.

I don’t think we’re going to have a really good conversation about what we should have done.”

The Annapolis-based restaurant chain said it’s still investigating the outbreak but has a team in place to keep a close eye on what’s going on and what’s causing it.

It’s also working to identify any potential health risks to its employees.

“We are going to be very transparent with our guests,” Breen said.

“We’re going a little bit beyond what we were doing on Thursday, and we are going a lot further.”

Breen says the restaurant chain is in the process of hiring a new head of food safety.

Annapolis’ health department says it has received nearly 300 cases of foodborne illness in recent days.

The chain said last week that it had taken measures to prevent the spread of the food-based illness that has been linked to the Disneyland restaurant chain, a popular attraction in the city that has a total of 6,800 locations.

Disneyland’s restaurants are among the largest in the country.

It’s not known if the outbreak was a response to the restaurant’s decision to reopen, or if it began as a result of the chain’s failure to take immediate measures to protect its staff.

The city has been in lockdown for the past few days.

On Monday, the state Department of Health and Human Services said it is investigating reports of illnesses among people who had visited the restaurants.

The agency says it’s working with restaurants to identify people who were at risk.

The restaurants have been operating in the Annapolis area for more than 40 years.

They’re part of the community and have been a staple of Annapolis residents for decades.

The restaurant chain had not announced when the outbreak began.

It has not issued a statement about the investigation.
