Irma, Now a Tropical Storm, Slated to Hit Georgia, Alabama on Monday

Irma, Now a Tropical Storm, Slated to Hit Georgia, Alabama on Mondayā€¯

As Irma's hurricane-force winds started to whip the Florida Keys, the storm stayed at a weakened 120 miles per hour (190 kph) and took slow aim at Florida.

"While we expect the greatest impacts in the mountains and along the SC border, all regions of North Carolina can expect to feel some wind and some rain", Cooper said at a news conference Saturday morning in Raleigh.

"These tower cranes are created to withstand winds up to 145 miles per hour, not a Category 5 Hurricane", the city said in a statement last week.

The number of people left without power in Florida increased to 5.8 million overnight as Irma downed trees and flooded streets throughout the entirety of the state, state officials said Monday.

Irma, which decimated the Caribbean as a top-tier Category 5 hurricane before losing strength after repeated landfalls in the continental US, was downgraded to a tropical storm Monday. In Miami, streets were turned into rivers as water poured in from the storm surge, and construction cranes collapsed under the force of 100 miles per hour (180 km/h) winds. "These shelters will provide a temporary safe place for people and their pets to rest as they wait for Hurricane Irma to pass".

Irma struck Cudjoe during a high tide. Two tornadoes touched ground Saturday in Oakland Park and Wilton Manors, and tornado warnings were briefly in effect Saturday night and early Sunday morning in Miami-Dade, Broward and Palm Beach counties. Luckily for Key West, Irma arrived at low tide.

According to the National Hurricane Centre, Jose is packing winds of 105mph - and its looping path in the western Atlantic Ocean could generate high surf and rip currents.

But some state residents planned to ride out the storm in their homes.

"As soon as the wind shifts direction, the water will come back quickly and continue to move inland", CNN meteorologist Judson Jones said.

"You saw the doors moving, the chandeliers shaking". But we are asking residents to stay where they are.

Irma, which killed at least 22 people as it tore through Caribbean islands toward Florida, has already claimed at least one life in the state. If it hits, Irma would be the first strike by a major hurricane in 90 years, when the population ballooned from about 10,000 to m more than 4 million.
