Broward County curfew for Hurricane Irma to end at 10 am Monday

Broward County curfew for Hurricane Irma to end at 10 am Monday”

Hurricane Irma's impact on Orange County has surpassed what was considered the worst hurricane in memory to hit the area, Mayor Teresa Jacobs said Monday.

The Town of Melbourne Beach has a curfew from 7:30 p.m. Sunday through 7 a.m. Monday. No other people were injured.

"Please stay indoors. Stay in the safest place of your home until we get through this storm", Jacobs said.

The Orange County Emergency Operations Center said early Monday that the fire department and the National Guard are going door-to-door using boats to ferry families to safety. That included 356,000 in Orange, 121,000 in Lake County, 39,000 in Osceola County, 226,000 in Brevard County, 222,000 in Volusia County, and 157,000 in Seminole County. "The greatest danger to our citizens lies ahead of us, not behind us", she said. "We're really taxing the system at this point". Duke and OUC are collectively reporting that over 300,000 homes are without power in Orange County alone.

"Charley was more isolated", she said. "So we can keep ours guys and women safe".
