Trump Is Trying To Use Hurricane Irma To Speed Up Tax Cuts For The Rich

Irma strengthened to a Category 4 Hurricane overnight, and is expected to track along Florida's western coast before making its way to Tampa.

FIU linebacker Anthony Wint played Friday night while he was unsure where his mother was. "Period", Jacksonville Mayor Lenny Curry tweeted. This has threatened millions more as it crept up the state's west coast, reported Reuters. And more than 100,000 customers in Georgia also were without power Monday.

Police officers moor a boat that washed ashore on the Quai de la Darse in Pointe-a-Pitre, Guadeloupe's largest city, after high winds from Hurricane Irma hit the island.

Irma made landfall in the Florida Keys just after 9 a.m. Sunday with maximum winds reaching about 130 mph. A tropical storm warning was issued for the first time ever in Atlanta, about 200 miles from the sea.

Governor Scott was quoted by CNN saying, "You can't survive these storm surges..."

Ploghoft said he wasn't able to evacuate because his flight plans didn't work out.

Saturday, the hurricane center said parts of Florida's southwest coast could see "catastrophic" storm surge, 10 to 15 feet high.

The wind began picking up in St. Petersburg, some 400 miles north of the Keys, and people started bracing for the onslaught.

In Florida, cities on both the east and west coasts of the peninsular state took on the appearance of ghost towns as nervous residents heeded insistent evacuation orders affecting 6.3 million people, nearly a third of the state's population.

Storm surge and tornadoes were two big concerns.

The exception was an uptick on I-75 out of Tampa Bay, where more than 500 vehicles passed near Zephyrhills in Pasco County in the 8 o'clock hour.

AccuWeather reports after blasting the northern Caribbean, deadly Hurricane Irma is now moving into Florida spreading destructive winds, flooding rain and inundating seas.

Traffic patterns on U.S. 1 estimated about 10,000 people remained on the Florida Keys despite the mandatory evacuation. Miami Beach barred outsiders from the island. "But I really truly believe once we got to Birmingham, we realized the only thing we had any control over was how we would play in the game".

"I don't think I can make it over to the house". "Definitely not right now".

There's also a chance that coastal areas of Gorgia, South Carolina, and North Carolina, will be affected by Irma. Four "last resort" shelters set up on the islands will become more permanent, with services such as food and supply distribution. But given what's at stake if a worst-case scenario materializes and potential victims need to be ready, forecasters have a serious obligation to communicate the possibility.

"The wooden pier is basically gone", said Steven Schlacknam, a 51-year-old visual artist watching from a 37th floor apartment.

- Miami-Dade County announced a curfew between 7 p.m. Sunday and 7 a.m. Monday.

Tropical storm and hurricane-strength conditions are expected to begin in Florida around 2 pm on Saturday and continue into Sunday. There were no immediate reports of casualties, but officials reported "significant damage".
