President Donald Trump's esteemed resort Mar-a-Lago in Florida may be right on the path of Hurricane Dorian, which is expected to become an extremely destructive storm.
The resort, which is currently closed for the summer, is located on the rich barrier island of Palm Beach.
During the cooler months, Trump regularly visits the building and has held several high-level meetings with world leaders there.
According to the most recent issue of the National Hurricane Center for Dorian, Mar-a-Lago is in the middle of a possible category 4 storm with winds of almost 140 km / h when it strikes on Monday

Memes flooded social media and & # 39; asked & # 39; damage some parts of the estate
The news flooded social media with dark-tempered Twitter memes about the approaching hurricane.
However, John Cardillo, the host of America Talks Live on Newsmax TV, tweeted that Mar-a-Lago is unlikely to be affected at all.
& # 39; All verified left accounts that cheer for #HurricaneDorian to hit Mar-a-Lago do not realize that it is a reinforced building with generators &, he wrote.
& # 39; Especially the black and poor Riviera beach just north of Mar-a-Lago will be destroyed and leveled. & # 39;
It is not long after former Canadian Prime Minister Kim Campbell said she hoped the so-called & # 39; Winter White House & # 39; the president would be destroyed by the storm.
& # 39; I'm looking for a direct hit on Mar a Lago! & # 39; Campbell, who was prime minister for about five months in 1993, tweeted Thursday.
She received an intense kickback for the tweet, for which she moved away and apologized.
& # 39; I apologize sincerely for everything that has been offended. It was intended as sarcasm – not a serious desire for damage, & she wrote.
Trump bought the resort in 1985 and has received leaders such as Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe and Chinese Xi Jinping at the resort. Pictured: Trump (left) and Chinese President Xi Jinping (R) walk together on the Mar-a-Lago estate, April 2017
The estate has become known as the & # 39; Winter White House & # 39; and has suffered from the fair share of hurricanes. Pictured: Trump, Barron Trump and First Lady Melania Trump participate in Trump Invitational Grand Prix Mar-a-Lago Club, January 2015
Trump tweeted Thursday, urging residents to prepare for the storm and saying his administration & # 39; very, very hard & # 39; works. Pictured: Trump returns to the Oval Office after attending an event establishing the US Space Command at the Rose Garden at the White House, Thursday
Thursday night, President Donald Trump urged Florida residents to prepare for Dorian and said his administration & # 39; very, very hard & # 39; works before the storm arrives by sending food and water to the affected areas.
& # 39; It looks like it can be an absolute monster, & # 39; Trump warned in a Twitter video that was shot outside the White House on Thursday evening. & # 39; We are done. We have the best people in the world ready to help you. & # 39;
Mar-a-Lago dates from the 1920s. It was originally built by grain heiress Marjorie Merriweather Post, with the main building with 126 rooms.
Trump bought the resort in 1985, after attempts to turn it into a national park were unsuccessful.
Since becoming president, Trump has hosted leaders such as Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe and Chinese Xi Jinping at the resort.
Hurricanes have always been part of Mar-a-Lago.
In 2005, Trump said he received $ 17 million insurance for hurricane damage at the resort. But an Associated Press investigation found few indications of such large-scale damage.
John Cardillo, the host of America Talks Live on Newsmax TV, tweeted that Mar-a-Lago is unlikely to have any consequences and that it was in a dark mood to wish for damage.
At the time, Trump said he did not know how much was spent on repairs, but acknowledged that he had some money in his pocket.
He transferred money to his personal accounts and said that according to the terms of his policy, you did not have to invest it again.
& # 39; Landscaping, roofing, walls, painting, leaks, artwork in the – you know, the large tapestries, tiles, Spanish tiles, the beach, the erosion, & # 39; he said about the storm damage. & # 39; It is still not what it was. & # 39;
Trump is a skeptic of climate change. Meanwhile, local governments in Florida, including in Palm Beach County, are preparing to deal with rising sea levels and possibly more intense hurricanes.
If sea-level predictions come true even below, Mar-a-Lago could in the not too distant future make ocean water ripple on its lawns.
And Mar-a-Lago is not Trump's only trait that could come on the path of the hurricane.
CNN reported eight others that could be affected, including: Trump National Doral in Doral, Trump Hollywood in Hollywood Beach, Trump National Golf Club in Jupiter, Trump Towers and Trump Grande in Sunny Isles Beach, Trump International Golf Club in West Palm Beach and two private homes in West Palm Beach.
