With Hurricane Irma bearing down on the Florida Keys and especially Key West, there is a way to see how the island is faring right now.

A collection of webcam video feeds has been compiled here.

They’re showing the worsening conditions on Key West as Irma, which is a Category 4 storm, is approaching from the south after striking Cuba.

Among the views that are available are at Mallory Square, at Two Friends Patio Restaurant on Front Street and at the southernmost point in the U.S.

At 4 p.m., wind and rain was picking up and the waves crashed at the southern most point buoy.

A few people ventured out in the harsh conditions to take pictures at the southernmost point.

The brunt of Irma is expected to strike near Key West by Sunday morning.
