  • Hurricane Irma Update — Beyond The Forecast

Since much of its circulation is interacting with the landmass of Florida, the hurricane is in a weakening mode but it is still very powerful.

Miami residents are capturing the ongoing devastation of Hurricane Irma, after the storm swell breached the seawall and flooded massive portions of the city's financial district.

"Do not put yourself or your family's life at risk", Scott said.

And again, the water doesn't just leave.

"Possessions can be replaced. But whatever we find when we open those doors, we'll be here".

On Florida's west coast, residents are bracing themselves for the devastating eye of the hurricane, which could generate 4.5m walls of water, enough to cover a house.

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

Hurricane Harvey, a Category Four storm, reaches Texas on August 25, unleashing catastrophic rainfall that floods large areas and leads to the deaths of at least 33 people.

Florida's coastline is ravaged by hurricanes Charley and Frances in August 2004, with more than 50 people killed and over $20 billion worth of damage.

The hurricane centre predicts Irma will "move along or near the south-west coast" of Florida on Sunday.

In the Palmetto State, a storm surge warning was in place from the South Santee River south to the Georgia border, the National Weather Service's Charleston office said.

"We know we are ground zero for this storm".

"We're in a concrete building in the fourth floor". And looking ahead to tonight and tomorrow, Irma is likely to head for Tampa.

In Florida and southern Georgia, more than 8 million people face hurricane-force winds topping 74 mph, said Ryan Maue of WeatherBell Analytics. Florida has been declared in a state of emergency.

The Ohio National Guard said that 7,000 soldiers from several Midwestern states would be sent to Florida to help with Irma's aftermath. There were no immediate reports of tornadoes touching down.

A meteorologist calculates that Hurricane Irma will dump about 10 trillion gallons (38 trillion litres) of rain on Florida over a day-and-a-half time period. "That's a bad path to be in". "Everyone is going to have to be patient".
