Jim Jones's Live Updates On Hurricane Irma Will Have You In Tears

Lord...

Published September 11, 2017

As Hurricane Irma teeters back and forth in category strengths, arriving on the heels of Hurricane Harvey, Floridians, Caribbean island residents and weather reporters everywhere are scrambling to keep track of it.

Harlem’s Dipset OG and Roc Nation signee Jim Jones doesn’t seem to be having that problem, though. Taken hostage himself by Irma while stuck in Florida, Jimmy hosted a series of his own weather reports, so to speak, reporting play-by-play updates via Instagram. The “We Fly High” emcee hasn’t been hit by the storm from his North Miami location just yet, despite other areas of Florida already crumbling beneath Irma’s catastrophic effects.

But even in times of turmoil, we could all use comedic relief or even a social media-rologist like Jimmy.

  1. For his first update, Jim Jones, aka 'your n***a the meteorologist,' shared that his first order of weatherman business is a high-key alert for areas like Key West, who he says 'really [needs] to get the f**k outta there;' As for Irma, 'f**k that b***h, She got me stuck, we stuck with her'

  2. And what’s a meteorologist without visuals to help guide the hilarious updates?

  3. Even though he warned people to stay off the beach (*eyes Zoey Dollaz*), you can add field reporter to his meteorologist resume, too, after he made his way to one for another live update

  4. All good weathermen also know the importance of a good weather briefing, like the differences between hurricane categories; According to Jimmy, 'Category 5 is your a** is out! 9 times out of 10, you might not make it — that s**t might push a building down'

  6. Thus, Jimmy the meteorologist called in a state of emergency and officially declared Hurricane Irma’s new classification: a 'Category Get-Yo-a**-in-the-house'
