New Video Shows Downtown Miami Underwater After Hurricane Irma

It weakened as it passed over the rest of Florida and was downgraded to a tropical storm by Monday morning. But this storm, while wounded, is still unsafe. Caught in the middle of the storm in Palm Beach, Florida, is New Zealand woman Anna Wilding.

By Friday morning, after a full six days of movement, the National Hurricane Center expects Jose to be just 300 miles away from its current position.

The south to north scenario along a coastline that Irma seems to be taking has always been seen as the most problematic for Floridians because of the few places it leaves for residents to flee from the storm.

Broward County, though, should continue to see sustained tropical storm force winds and hurricane gusts for several more hours. We can hear the wind battering the door and trees outside. It also caused flooding and outages in Georgia and SC as it moved inland.

"The storm surge flooding in Miami is a mere fraction of what would have happened if the core of the storm had been further east", tweeted Rick Knabb, former director of the National Hurricane Center and now an expert on the Weather Channel.

Rick Scott says he flew over the Keys and saw a lot of flood damage and boats that had washed ashore. Charleston police asked residents to avoid downtown in anticipation of high tide. Affected states include Florida, Georgia, Alabama, Tennessee, South Carolina and North Carolina. The system, which is now 400 miles wide, may have lost some strength, but it's continuing to produce heavy winds and rain as it marches northwards towards Georgia.

Christian relief groups are mobilizing to help in recovery efforts with Irma, much like they did with Hurricane Harvey and the damage it caused in Texas.

It was the first time the eye of a Category 5 storm had made landfall in Cuba since 1932, state media said, and the island's Communist government ordered the evacuation of more than a million people from its path. "Portions of these states within the southern Appalachians will be especially vulnerable to flash flooding". Early Tuesday, the remnants of Irma were blowing through Alabama and MS after drenching Georgia. Any rain see from Irma will be meager at best and will amount to less than.25 inches of rain. The service also cautioned that local flooding could occur. "These winds are strong enough to push the water out of some of the shallow areas of the bays and harbors".

Some of the 10-inch-plus totals fell over population centers such as Naples, Fort Myers, Melbourne and Fort Pierce.
