Hurricane makes second Florida landfall

Hurricane makes second Florida landfall”

Boats are seen at a marina in Coconut Grove as Hurricane Irma arrives at south Florida, in Miami, Fla., Sept. 10, 2017.

And more than 120 homes were being evacuated early Monday in Orange County, just outside the city of Orlando, as floodwaters started to pour in. Irma's core was expected to reach southern Georgia on Monday afternoon before heading to Alabama.

Irma's center was about 40 km northeast of the heavily populated Tampa-St.

President Raul Castro called on Cubans on Monday to unite in swiftly rebuilding the Caribbean nation in the wake of Hurricane Irma, which killed at least 10 people during a devastating three-day rampage along the length of the island. The storm will weaken as it travels over land.

Acting DHS Secretary Elaine Duke told CNN 200,000 people remained in shelters and more than 5 million were without power, but the top priority was search and rescue as daylight revealed the damage from the storm overnight.

In one of the largest US evacuations, almost 7 million people in the Southeast were warned to seek shelter, including 6.4 million in Florida alone. He said: "I don't know how you're going to survive that". "What's going to happen now?" "Shingles are coming off".

In storm-battered towns up and down Florida's western shores - from Naples and Fort Myers north through Sarasota, Tampa and St. Petersburg - residents huddled with relatives, neighbours and pets to ride out a hurricane that had ranked as one of the Atlantic's most powerful in a century. For days, forecasters warned Irma was taking dead aim at Florida.

While there have been many Atlantic cyclone seasons with more major hurricanes than 2017, this is the first time on record that two category 4 hurricanes have made landfall in the US.
