Hurricane Irma: Latest on storm as likely impacts reduced in Virginia

Forecasters say Irma now aimed at Keys, Tampa

While the projected track showed Irma raking the state's Gulf Coast, forecasters warned that the entire Florida peninsula - including the Miami metropolitan area of 6 million people - was in extreme peril from the monstrous storm, nearly 400 miles wide.

After slamming the Florida peninsula on September 10 as a Category 4 hurricane with 130 miles per hour winds, Irma continued to move north throughout the Sunshine State, causing millions of power outages along the way before becoming a tropical depression late Monday.

Not over yet: Residents near rivers will start to see flooding as the days go on, Hillsborough County Administrator Mike Merrill said. In Sandy Springs, a man died while lying in bed after a large tree broke and fell on his home, the Sandy Springs Mayor said.

Though, Carroll said, there's concern for flash flooding in some areas as bands from Irma, expected to turn into a tropical storm, could carry 1 to 2 inches of rainfall per hour. In the Caribbean, at least 24 were people were killed during Irma's destructive trek across exclusive islands known as the vacation playground for the rich.

What is happening in Florida?

Some surges could reach 15ft (4.6m).

There were no immediate reports of deaths in Florida.

The forecast for Hurricane Irma's path has shifted to the southwest of the heavily populated Miami metro area as time runs out to evacuate.

Forecasters said the hurricane will loop back around and head west by the end of the week, influenced by the development and movement of a mid-level ridge. "It's going to impact my home town of Naples, Florida, all of the west coast", Florida governor Rick Scott told Fox News.

The city of Savannah, on Georgia's coast, was evacuated for the second time in less than a year because of the storm, and the National Weather Service in Peachtree City confirmed that Atlanta - more than 250 miles (400 kilometers) inland from either the Atlantic or Gulf coasts - was under a tropical storm warning for the first time.

The National Weather Service lowered the expected total rainfall for most of the Upstate. One swung vigorously over downtown Miami. And at least two construction cranes partially collapsed.

Cuba: Officials have talked of "significant damage", without giving further details, but no casualties have been reported.

Authorities plan to fly over the Keys on Monday, officials said. Prime minister Gaston Browne said 95 per cent of buildings on Barbuda had been damaged. More than 585 shelters were opened and used by approximately 200,000 residents.

There is also another big hurricane out there, Jose.

But the shortages are worse in several major cities around the state.

Millions of people from coast to coast in Florida are waking up without power Monday as Hurricane Irma rumbles north, spurring slashing gusts of wind, pounding rain and perilous storm surge.
