Man flattened by giant wave as Hurricane Irma smashes Florida coast

Florida Governor: Hurricane Irma will be 'most catastrophic' storm

But even though Irma lost some of her violent strength, experts say she's still extremely unsafe. Several deaths in the USA have been blamed on the storm and authorities have sent an aircraft carrier and other Navy ships to aid search-and-rescue operations amid reports of wide devastation in the hurricane-battered Keys.

"There are really strong gusts of wind".

The center said the storm was beginning to pull away from the Leeward island chain.

Irma's rampage across Florida broke records in Jacksonville before heading north to torment Georgia and beyond.

Florida emergency management officials have asked another 700,000 to evacuate ahead of Hurricane Irma. The hurricane also managed to remain a Category 5 hurricane for three days - the longest in the satellite era.

"As little as six inches of moving water can knock you down", tweeted the state's governor Rick Scott following the downgrade.

"We're not saying get in your auto and go", Merrill said.

Now the entire Georgia coast is under a storm surge warning as Irma continues its destructive march north.

Brad Whitworth of Texas is riding the storm out in Tavernier, Florida, just south of Key Largo.

Forecasters said Jose remains a "dangerous" Category 4 hurricane.

He said boats were cast ashore, water, sewers and electricity were knocked out, and "I don't think I saw one trailer park where nearly everything wasn't overturned".

There's room for more, County Administrator Mike Merrill said, but he urged people to stay put for now.

Operations at the airport resumed at 4 a.m. EDT, but a check of the airport's website Tuesday morning showed many flights still canceled.

Miami streets were flooded as the water crept up on and around Brickell Avenue, which runs from the waterfront through the city's financial district and newly built high rises.

The full impact of Irma on Florida remains to be seen, but early reports give us a sense of how much assistance residents will need to recover and rebuild. But Terminal buildings at Miami International Airport suffered significant water damage, and ceiling tiles at gate areas fell down throughout the airport, according to authorities.

Forecasters said metro Atlanta could expect peak winds of 30-40 miles per hour (50 to 65 kph) and gusts up to 55 miles per hour (90 kph) on Monday, with a likelihood of falling limbs and trees blocking roadways and snapping power lines.
