TORNADO spotted in Florida as Hurricane winds felt on land

TORNADO spotted in Florida as Hurricane winds felt on land

The majority of the damage in Tampa consisted of downed trees.

Florida residents have captured what they believe to be tornadoes forming only hours before Hurricane Irma is expected to hit the Keys.

After a destructive weekend in the Caribbean and Florida, Irma has been downgraded from a hurricane to a tropical storm, but it is still carving a path of destruction as it moves north.

Still, Miami was not out of danger.

Officials in Monroe County, where the Keys is located, told Reuters that most of the islands still lacked fuel, electricity, running water and mobile service.

In Redington Shores west of Tampa, attorney Carl Roberts spent a sleepless night riding out Irma in his 17th floor beachfront condo. The first landfall in the United States occurred at 9:10 AM at Cudjoe Key, Florida.

The forecasts even have it at hurricane strength well into Georgia on Monday.

Forecasters are predicting Tampa Bay as the new striking point for the storm instead of Miami.

The vast majority were in Florida. Now it has around 3 million people.

At the time, it was the most destructive hurricane to ever strike the USA, causing up to $32bn of damage in the day's valuation of the dollar and killing 65 people. The storm is so large the entire state will feel at least some of Irma's power.

As Irma moves inland, more than 45 million people will face tropical storm conditions.

Wondering when Irma will leave Florida? South Tampa and Davis Island experienced the most destruction from Irma. The city urged voluntary evacuation of low-lying areas last Wednesday, before the storm hit.

She is still brining a lot of rain and wind to northern Florida today. It is moving north-northwest at 8 miles per hour. Here are the latest coordinates on Irma.

"With Orlando being in central Florida we aren't getting it as bad as the coastal towns, but there are very strong winds and heavy rain battering down". Current projections indicate a possible storm surge of 4-6 feet above dry ground. He expects thousands of miles (kilometers) of poles and lines will need to be replaced, particularly on the Gulf coast. Forecasters say they are moving the forecast track slight west again.
