Hurricane Irma spins up tornado in Florida

Irma, one of the fiercest Atlantic storms in a century, was expected to hit Florida on Sunday morning, bringing massive damage from wind and flooding to the fourth-largest state by population.

"Jose is moving toward the north-northwest near 10 miles per hour (17 km/h), and a turn toward the northeast is expected by tonight, with a reduction in forward speed", the hurricane center reports. Parts of the state as of Saturday morning are included in the so-called "cone of uncertainty".

"And the actual damage estimates of not only Harvey, but also Irma takes place over a course of several years, so it's not that all money needs to come down at one time".

With the arrival of what is potentially one of the most devastating storms to ever hit Florida, officials have set aside 3.2 million litres (0.85 million gallons) of water, filled 67 trailers with meals, and amassed 24,000 tarps.

While Irma won't be almost as strong as it will be over Florida, Alabama still could get a taste of it, especially southeastern Alabama according to the National Weather Service.

In reviewing what happened, the National Weather Service in a 2006 report found that the Punta Gorda landfall had been within the cone of uncertainty. "To the public in their homes who are trying to ride out this storm, we urge you to not get on the roads until you have been given clearance by everyone who is required to give clearance".

"The good news is that it will be gradually weakening", he said.

If he had been in charge, he would have told people on the Gulf Coast to evacuate at the same time as the people on the east coast, he said.

Irma is plowing into Georgia and toward other parts of the Deep South - Alabama, Tennessee and the Carolinas. "And as I've been saying, paperwork and money's not going to get in the way of us mobilizing and saving lives".

"This is a storm of enormous destructive power, and I ask everyone in the storm's path to heed ALL instructions from government officials", Trump said on Twitter. Heavy rains are causing rivers to swell, and significant flooding is possible over the next five days, both along the Florida peninsula and in southern Georgia.

Tuesday at 8 a.m. according to the website.

However, European shares rose on Monday in early deals, led higher by insurers as the weakening of Irma raised expectations that costs for the industry might be lower than initially feared.

The Democrat said that the storm should lessen in its intensity as it moves north because the east side of it would be over land which doesn't have water for its fuel - but he said, that all depends on the eye of the storm.

The region remained without power, water or cell phone service Monday afternoon.

The Pasco Sheriff's office has felt it necessary to warn people not to shoot weapons at Hurricane Irma, after a Facebook event called "Shoot at Hurricane Irma" attracted interest from more than 50,000 people.

Rain and winds have subsided in Florida, but the state is still reeling from the storm's destruction.

Gusty winds could begin as soon as Sunday night Tuesday in the southeast corner of the state, according to the weather service.

The region won't get sustained hurricane winds, only risky gusts.

Amid the exodus, almost one-third of all gas stations in Florida's metropolitan areas were out of gasoline, with scattered outages in Georgia, North Carolina and SC, according to Gasbuddy.com, a retail fuel price tracking service.
