In line with the he National Hurricane Center (NHC) Irma would continue to move northwards, and reach southeastern United States late Monday and Tuesday.

Meteorologist Simon Brewer posted a video on Sunday morning of what happened after his fellow meteorologist Justin Drake got out of his vehicle and came face-to-face with Hurricane Irma in Key West, Florida.

Hurricane Irma could possibly make landfall again as a Category 4 storm in the Manatee, Sarasota, or Fort Myers areas around 10 to midnight on Sunday.

While the projected track showed Irma raking the state's Gulf Coast, forecasters warned that the entire state - including the Miami metropolitan area of 6 million people - was in extreme peril because of the sheer size of the storm.

The storm was still hurling 65 miles per hour winds Monday, pummeling cities in northeast Florida that had not expected to feel its full wrath.

"With @CityofTampa parks closed ahead of storm, this is the best we've got", Scheu wrote.

Storm-related debris is now covering many roads in Albany, where FOX 5's Marissa Mitchell said winds were gaining strength.

Meteorologists said heavy rain squalls spawning tornadoes are hitting South Florida part of Hurricane Irma's leading edge.

The city, located on Florida's west coast, was hit by Irma around 5 p.m., and parts of the town are facing significant flooding.

On Florida's west coast, resident Charley Ball said he expected a storm surge to completely engulf the island of Sanibel where he lives. People living nearby were urged by city officials to seek shelter in their own buildings away from the side facing the fallen crane, or in a stairwell. The National Weather Service says the flooding has exceeded the previous 1964 flooding caused by Hurricane Dora by at least a foot, as of Monday morning.

John Ward, the emergency operations manager of Clay County, said Monday morning that crews had saved 46 people, with an undetermined number still stranded, The Associated Press reported.
