"We continue to send thoughts and prayers to victims of Hurricane Harvey and are praying for those that are in the path of Hurricane Irma", the statement concluded.

The evacuation order went in place at 10 a.m. Friday, part of a series of orders that will require 155,000 people to leave their homes in Palm Beach County alone.

Trump declared a state of emergency in Florida, Puerto Rico and the U.S. Virgin Islands Tuesday night and Florida Gov. Rick Scott said in a Facebook post that "Irma is shaping up to be bigger than Andrew" - in reference to the 1992 storm that killed dozens and caused hundreds of millions of dollars in damage.

As the storm turns towards Florida, and one Trump property having already been reportedly damaged, time will tell whether Irma will significantly impact another this weekend.

When reporters asked Mar-a-Lago member and former Palm Beach Mayor Jack McDonald about the sum, he said, "I am unable to comprehend $17 million in reimbursable damage".

Others familiar with the storm's effects at Mar-a-Lago, including Trump employees, remember it differently.

Hurricane Irma is expected to hit South Florida on Sunday morning as a Category 4 or 5 storm, carrying wind speeds upwards of 150 miles per hour.

Trump's Mar-A-Lago resort has survived through hurricanes before.

"Our teams at the Trump properties in Florida are taking all of the proper precautions and following local and Florida state advisories very closely to ensure that everyone is kept safe and secure", a Trump Organization spokesperson told CNN. The Le Chateau des Palmiers on the island of St. Martin was in the direct path of then-category 5 Hurricane Irma on Wednesday, the Washington Post reported.

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

We know that the four most solid buildings on the island have been destroyed which means that more rustic structures have probably been completely or partially destroyed.

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