Aerial images of damage to the Florida Keys by Hurricane Irma

Aerial images of damage to the Florida Keys by Hurricane Irma”

Hurricane Jose formed less than a week after Hurricane Irma, and he's possibly headed toward the U.S.

Jose is expected to turn northeast Monday night, forecasters said. "It's been strong enough to knock us over". Strong river flooding is possible over the next five days in much of central Georgia and southern SC.

That's because numerous islands are now inaccessible. "I know for our entire state, especially the Keys, it's going to be a long road".

Authorities say a Florida man appears to have been electrocuted by a downed power line following Irma.

The State Department said Monday that US embassies and consulates have reopened in the Dominican Republic, Haiti, the Bahamas, Barbados and Curaçao, although services were limited. Florida's largest utility, Florida Power & Light, said western parts of the state might be without electricity until September 22.

At least one other possibly storm-related fatal vehicle crash was reported on Sunday in Orange County, Florida.

US stock futures were pointing to strong gains for Wall Street on Monday, Sept. 11, and European and Asian shares traded higher after Hurricane Irma weakened and North Korea refrained from launching missiles during the rogue nation's weekend observance of its 69th founding anniversary. The storm surge damage is nearly identical to what northern Hatteras Island experienced in 2011 during Irene, and Frisco and Hatteras village previous year during Matthew.

The storm "seriously" damaged the center of the island with winds up to 256 kilometers per hour, according to Cuban state media.

- There are boil water orders in effect for parts of Broward County, and Miami-Dade County schools are closed until further notice.

Flooded streets, damaged homes are what Floridians from Jacksonville to Key West woke up to on Monday.

"Right now, we are anxious about lives, not cost", Trump said after returning from Camp David, the presidential retreat in Maryland where he monitored the storm and met with his Cabinet.

This visible image of Category 4 Hurricane Irma was taken on Sunday Sept.10, 2017 at 9:25 a.m. EDT (1325 UTC) by the NOAA GOES East satellite as its eye approached the southwestern coast of Florida.

Hurricane Irma left at least a quarter of the homes in the Florida Keys completely destroyed and another 65% with major damage, according to initial estimates.

Georgia Gov. Nathan Deal has already declared a state emergency for all 159 counties as Irma barrels toward the state.

South Carolina Gov. Henry McMaster issued a mandatory evacuation for some barrier islands. The governor also ordered that the state government be shut Monday and Tuesday "for all employees except essential personnel".

But Irma's overall death toll jumped to at least 40 after Cuba reported that 10 people had been killed there over the weekend.
