rome - Pope Franciscus flies because of Hurricane Irma. The device with the church frog had to change due to the natural violence in the Caribbean area, said a staff member of the Vatican.
Franciscus left Wednesday from Italy to Colombia. The Alitalia airplane with the spiritual aboard is expected to fly across Puerto Rico, but now chooses a southern route. The device then passes Barbados, Grenada and Trinidad.
The heavy storm is expected to reach Puerto Rico later in the day.
