    Twitter media users cracked jokes, offered prayers and shared useful information as Hurricane Irma looms over the US eastern seaboard.

    Category 5 Hurricane Irma swept across the Caribbean wreaking havoc in its path and is about to make  landfall on the US Atlantic coast.

    As the raging tempest looms before Florida’s residents, social media networks like Twitter are ablaze with users sharing their emotions and opinions on this matter or even trying and provide useful information related to the subject to those who might need it.

    ​Some Twitter users offered their sympathies to all affected by this disaster.

    ​Others opted to calmly track the progress of the advancing storm.

    ​And yet others cracked jokes in the face of the advancing hurricane, apparently refusing to succumb to anxiety.

    ​Certain users even sought to provide their assistance by disseminating information about shelters for the evacuees.

    ​Irma is the most intense hurricane in the Atlantic over the past decade. It is considered to be even more powerful than the recent Hurricane Harvey which went ashore in Texas and caused major flooding.
