Hurricane Irma continues up the state of Florida, bringing strong winds, power outages, and a storm surge that could be deadly.

 

A monster hurricane marching north through south Florida, knocking out power to millions, creating rivers in the street, and even spawning tornadoes. Irma started out as a category four storm. 400 miles wide, packing 130 mile per hour winds. Over 100,000 people are taking refuge in more than 500 shelters across the state.While the storm has weakened, forecasters are still very concerned about the storm surge. And they’re warning some areas on the mainland could get up to 15 feet of water.
