More than 1 million residents in Puerto Rico are without power Thursday as Hurricane Irma bares down on the U.S. territory, former Governor Alejandro Garcia Padilla told CNBC Thursday.

The category 5 storm has been recorded to have sustained winds above 180 miles per hour, making it the most powerful Atlantic Ocean hurricane ever recorded.

The storm has already killed at least 10 people in the Caribbean, according to the Weather Channel and is expected to make landfall in Florida this weekend.

In addition to the loss of power, about 50,000 Puerto Rico residents are without water.

Officials warned that residents could be without power for up to six months following the storm as Puerto Rico's crumbling infrastructure remains ill-equipped to deal with a hurricane of this severity.
