Woman Delivers Her Own Baby During Hurricane Irma Because Moms Are Superheroes

"Life-threatening storm surge is occurring now in the Keys and is expected to begin this morning in Southwest Florida", Florida Gov. Rick Scott tweeted early Sunday.

Alfonso said there were no reported injuries or deaths so far from the storm. And we're happy to say that all is well for the mother and the baby with quite a fitting name-Nayiri Storm.

Though 110 miles (180 kilometers) from Irma's landfall in the Florida Keys, hurricane-force winds from the 400-mile-wide storm were being felt through the Miami area.

The 20- to 25-tower cranes now in use in Miami were created to withstand 145-mile-an-hour winds, city officials said last week. "We made an executive decision that we would open the shelters on our own led by our principals and our custodians and our cafeteria workers". "She's stable at home", Assistant Fire Chief Eloy Garcia said in an interview with The Miami Herald.

The crane's arm is now dangling over a high-rise under construction in downtown Miami.

Hurricane Irma has knocked out power to at least 4.7 million customers, paralyzed tanker traffic and shut about 6,000 petrol stations.

President Donald Trump approved a disaster declaration for Florida, opening the way for federal aid.

Other cranes are withstanding the winds and weathervaning as planned, although one crane was caught on video spinning exceptionally wildly in the rough winds, and at times looks very close to collapse.

Guyanese national Lloyd Phillips was also expecting to be slammed by Irma in Kissimmee, Florida. For days, meteorologists had warned Irma seemed to be taking a direct aim at the Miami metropolitan area.

Officials Plaza Construction Corp., the general contractor for the condo under construction at NE 30th Terrace in Miami, called Hurricane Irma an unprecedented and historic catastrophic storm.

Many have wondered why the cranes were not removed. It caused $15 billion in damage and was blamed for as many as 35 deaths in the U.S.
