In Miami-Dade County, the storm also spurred the start of that region's biggest-ever evacuation effort.

Hurricane Irma is forecast to hit southern Florida as a Category 4 storm with 145 miles per hour winds, promising an extreme, "life-threatening" storm surge threat to the entire southern tip of Florida, according to the National Weather Service.

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

"Our teams at our four properties in Florida are taking all of the proper precautions and are following local and Florida State Advisories very closely to help ensure that everyone is kept safe and secure".

Mar-a-Lago, built in the 1920s, has a long history of withstanding hurricanes. At this point, the question is not will Mar-A-Lago be hit by Irma, but how hard?

All three of Trump's golf clubs have been closed, according to NBC's Hallie Jackson.

In addition to Trump's "Winter White House" at the Mar-a-Lago Club in Palm Beach, the Trump Organization has multiple properties near or on the South Florida coastline: Trump Grande, Trump International Beach Resort, and Trump Towers in Sunny Isles, Trump Hollywood in Hollywood Beach, Trump Plaza in West Palm Beach, plus Trump National Golf Club in Jupiter and Trump National Doral in Doral.

Irma has already been blamed for 10 deaths in the Caribbean and is expected to cause millions, or even billions, of dollars in damage in its wake.

Hurricane Irma appears to have already damaged one Trump property, with reports indicating that the president's 11-room mansion in St. Martin was torn apart by the storm.

The 2016 AP investigation is newly relevant as a massively powerful Hurricane Irma swirls toward Florida.

Trump called a state of emergency in Florida, Puerto Rico and the U.S. Virgin Islands Tuesday night. The hurricane destroyed 95 percent of buildings on the island, according to AFP.

On Friday the Trump spokesperson said they are "still addressing the situation at our property in St. Martin".
