Did Czech calendar foretell the arrival of Hurricane Irma?

MIAMI – While the Local 10 Weather Authority and scientists from all over the world attempt to predict where and when Hurricane Irma will wind up, they could have just looked at the calendar.

In the Czech Republic, the "name day" is a popular tradition in the culture.

All 365 days of the year are given an individual name, and when a person's name falls on a specific day, they are celebrated.

On someone's "name day," you wish them well and perhaps buy them a present.

Well, when looking at the calendar for Sunday, Sept. 10, an eerie coincidence turns its head.

What's the name for the day Hurricane Irma is supposed to hit South Florida?

IRMA!

As they say at the Ripley's museum... believe it or not.
