Dead As Hurricane Irma Batters Florida

High winds and rains are pounding South Florida.

Several factors are needed for a tropical cyclone to form.

If Irma tracks farther west, then it will interact with warmer water for a longer period of time, which could lead to even further intensification.

So far, at least 36 million people were under hurricane warning, CNN reported. In Miami, two of the two dozen construction cranes looming over the skyline collapsed in the wind.

Irma is projected to be completely gone from Florida by Tuesday morning. Right now, I just want to keep my babies safe from this storm.

Despite all that, Masters predicts that when Irma is done it will go down as one of the five costliest hurricanes in U.S. history, but not up with the top three of 2005's Hurricane Katrina, 2012's Sandy and this year's Harvey.

One day after leaving a trail of destruction across the Caribbean, Hurricane Irma made landfall in the Florida Keys on Sunday, whipping up 130 mile-per-hour winds throughout the region and knocking out power for nearly 1.5 million people.

With so much noise and uncertainty emanating from the US and especially Washington, it was probably a relief towards the end of week for the markets to be able to focus on a more dependable institution such as the European Central Bank (ECB).

"Join me in this fight as we shoot flames at Hurricane Irma and dissipate her on the spot". For instance, Norman said, "if it comes to the Everglades, well, that place is mostly water".

Jose, a powerful Category Four storm, was heading toward the same string of Caribbean islands Irma has pummelled in recent days.

Earlier, Trump's homeland security adviser Tom Bossert said that he had spoken to Pentagon and State Department officials and insisted they were prepared to tackle Irma response efforts quickly. People are off the roads.

Key West then caught the next lucky break. "And you put your life in your own hands by not evacuating".

Addressing a press conference, governor Rick Scott said this would be the final time people could leave the state ahead of the storm. "This storm surge could kill you", Scott said. They cannot send out teams immediately because the conditions are too dangerous. The storm is still a Category 4. "Once the storm's here, we can't evacuate anybody".

Irma hit Cuba's Ciego de Avila province late Friday as a Category 5 hurricane. A 94 mph wind gust was recorded at Miami International Airport. "But this one scares me", Sally Carlson said as she snapped photos of the waves crashing against boats in St. Petersburg.

On Wednesday, the fierce storm hit the northeastern Caribbean islands with 185 mph winds, moving through Barbuda and St. Martin. A storm surge warning wraps around the state, from Brevard County to Tampa Bay.

The time to evacuate the Keys had passed, he said, "It's too late for folks in Monroe County, the Florida Keys".

US President Donald Trump received a briefing on Hurricane Irma today.

In Vero Beach, however, hurricane veteran Greg Von Zielinski hadn't loosened any of the 14 mooring ropes on his 54-foot sailboat at the municipal marina on the Atlantic coast.

Charley made landfall in Florida as a Category 4 storm with 150 mph winds.

What's with all these hurricane forecast models?

Across the peninsula, the Gulf coast city of Fort Myers also was battening down for Irma's screaming winds, rain and storm surge. Stroud says she plans to step outside once the "eye" of the hurricane passes over later Sunday. And only slight deviations would have made the storm's outcome much more severe.

More than a million people evacuated from vulnerable areas in Cuba. I feel helpless, and I hate that.
