Meanwhile, the damage could have been bigger had millions of Florida residents not vacated their homes on Friday and moved to safer areas.

First lady Melania Trump thanked first responders in the areas affected by Hurricane Irma on Sunday as the Category 4 storm moves onto the USA mainland.

7am - Hurricane Irma has truly hit Florida with two million homes without power and at least three people dead.

The Cuban government reported on Monday that 10 people had been killed after Irma battered the island's north coast with ferocious winds and 11-metre waves over the weekend.

Hurricane Irma continued to hit Florida's coastline Sunday night, where heavy rainfall and powerful winds reigned.

Following a flyover to examine the destruction Irma left behind in the Florida Keys, Republican Governor Rick Scott said while there is "devastation" in the Keys, Florida's west coast was "not as bad".

- More than 17,000 customers have already lost power in Savannah, Georgia.

The current projection has Irma continuing northward and gradually weakening until it becomes a mere tropical depression... in Indiana. Then, there's the lone model taking the storm through The Bahamas before making another Florida landfall.

"The power's going to be out for a long time. We've got roads that are impassable, so everybody's got to be patient as we work through this".

"We are thankful that the flooding Miami Beach had was minimal", Levine said. "Once this system passes through it's going to be a race to save lives and sustain lives".

As for the family who almost escaped two hurricanes, they said they are glad to see first responders heading into Florida as they left.

He said the water, electricity and sewage systems in the Keys were non-operational, and that trailer parks had been "overturned".

Irma is expected to sap demand for fuel for a time, Goldman Sachs analysts said in a note on Monday, but they cautioned that supply could remain strained because of refining capacity offline after Hurricane Harvey, which hit Texas two weeks ago.

More than 180,000 people huddled in shelters in the Sunshine State.

- In Venice, the water plant was shut down after it was damaged by the storm. One of the teams was preparing to fly into Key West, directly in the path of the storm.

Witt and his family made a decision to wait out the storm at home rather than evacuate.

Michael Rivers of North Lauderdale, Fla., said losing power took him from "anxious before and during the storm, to bored and angry after due to the loss of's hot". But he acknowledged that may not happen soon.

"Customers" refers to accounts for a business or household, which the state of Florida converted to population to get the 13-million estimate.

"If you need to get out, put a white flag in front of your house".
