Where Is Hurricane Irma Going Next?

Where Is Hurricane Irma Going Next?

But Freeman, a partner with Radiology Associates in South Florida, said he knows that Floridians will band together to get the state back up and running. "But this one scares me", said Sally Carlson in St. Petersburg, reported the Associated Press.

A tropical storm watch for Georgia was upgraded to a tropical storm warning on Sunday, with meteorologists projecting the state would see the worst of Irma from Monday morning until Tuesday morning.

Once Irma makes landfall, the storm is expected to decrease in intensity after it makes contact with the southwest Florida coast, and then weaken as it moves north over the western Florida coast and into the panhandle.

In mainland U.S., Irma's death toll reached 10 on Monday night, with six deaths confirmed in Florida, three in Georgia and one in SC. Irma has already devastated parts of the Caribbean, killing at least 28 people.

Florida Gov. Rick Scott said he also talked with Trump on Sunday and the president "said he was saying prayers for us", Scott told CBS' "Face the Nation". That's more than the population of NY and Los Angeles combined.

With Hurricane Irma weakening as it plows through North Florida, it will leave in its wake a parting gift for Tampa Bay: Rain.

In a parting shot, it triggered severe flooding around Jacksonville in the state's northeastern corner.

The NHC said the storm "is still life-threatening with unsafe storm surge, wind and heavy rains".

Trees were also downed, some onto vehicles parked outside of home.

The city and surrounding areas remained under a flash flood warning, he said. In the Keys, though, he said "there is devastation".

"We're not saying get in your vehicle and go", Merrill said. Nonetheless, barrier islands like Marco Island, near Naples, reported rising flood water and a loss of electricity and drinking water, authorities said. Facebook groups were forming Monday to help from afar.

The National Weather Service's Bill South stayed behind in Key West to work with first responders. Water flooded into homes and businesses in downtown Miami as the city was ravaged by a storm surge, with water waist-deep in some streets and the city's financial district inundated. "If you're outside, get inside and shelter in place". "A t-shirt, anything white", the office said on its Facebook page.

There will no longer be any destructive wind with Irma, and the rain will become lighter and less continuous as the moisture spreads out. A day later, it had weakened to a tropical storm, but still brought risky storm surge flooding to Jacksonville.

- Almost 4 million electric customers are without power across Florida, according to utility companies. Irma's core was expected to reach southern Georgia on Monday afternoon before heading to Alabama.
