Donald Trump’s multi-million pound mansion in the Caribbean is directly in the path of Hurricane Irma, according to US media.

The Category 5 storm is heading for the £21.5million home on the island of St Martin, the Miami Herald reported.

The US president is said to own the five-acre estate, which is known as ‘Le Chateau des Palmiers’ or ‘Castle of the Palms’, through a trust.

According to The Washington Post, the property’s listing price was recently cut to £13m. 

Trump is said to be renting out the mansion while he is President.

He also owns several other properties in the Caribbean and Florida, which could sustain damage as one of the most powerful storms on record hits.

It comes as British billionaire Richard Branson said he will ride out the potentially deadly winds of the hurricane on his private island in the Caribbean.

On his online blog, he posted pictures of stacked up furniture in his luxury home as he braces for the storm.

Winds of up to 185 mph lashed Barbuda, St. Martin and Anguilla as it threatened “potential catastrophe” over the British Virgin Islands on Wednesday.

US residents were warned not to travel to Cuba, Haiti and the Dominican Republic amid fears the storm could spark life-threatening deluges, flash flooding and landslides across the Caribbean.

Hundreds of British tourists were forced to fly home to safety mid-way through Caribbean breaks.
