Irma Is Now a Tropical Storm

"We have very serious, significant river flooding along the banks of the St. Johns River".

So we're going to just - just pray for us.

Hurricane-force winds extend up to 25 miles from the center and tropical-storm-force winds extend up to 140 miles. Emergency responders in the Florida Keys said they pulled a man's body from his pickup truck, which had crashed into a tree in high winds.

The National Hurricane Center warned people of the dangers of the storm, noting wind, storm surges and flash flooding as possibilities.

Irma continues its slog north along Florida's western coast having blazed a path of unknown destruction.

CNN meteorologist Judson Jones said the severity of the storm surge depended on which side of the storm Tampa was on.

"No way!" Indigo interrupted.

A total of 15,000 service members are supporting the relief operations, the department said.

More than six million homes and businesses were still without power in Florida and nearby states Tuesday, down from a peak of about 7.4 million Monday.

While the projected track showed Irma raking the state's Gulf Coast, forecasters warned that the entire Florida peninsula - including the Miami metropolitan area of 6 million people - was in extreme danger from the monstrous storm, nearly 400 miles (640 kilometers) wide. More than 100,000 customers were without power in Georgia and over 80,000 in SC.

Hurricane Irma made landfall in the Florida Keys on Sunday morning with top sustained winds of 130 miles per hour.

That's because some islands are extremely hard to access. First responders just now getting to the lower Keys including National Guard digging out the road.

Authorities said people could be without electricity for a week or more during what they described as the largest restoration process in history, the Orlando Sentinel reported.

"We're not saying get in your vehicle and go", Merrill said.

One man in SC was killed by a falling tree limb and another died in a traffic accident, officials said. But that doesn't mean all Floridians should try to go back home. "We have to wait till all the elements pass through", he said.

People - two million people across Florida lost power in the storm. Though the once strongest hurricane in the history of Atlantic has weakened into a Category 2 storm, the worst is not over yet.

North Carolina Gov. Roy Cooper also declared a state of emergency for all 100 counties in his state ahead of Irma.

But some state residents planned to ride out the storm in their homes.

"Wherever Hurricane Irma goes, we'll be there first", Pence said.

Hurricane Irma has weakened to a tropical storm after causing widespread damage on Caribbean islands and the us state of Florida.
