Do NOT shoot at Hurricane Irma: Florida sheriff warns after 55000 say 'interested' in online prank

Florida power company says restoration 'will take weeks' after Irma

Hours of strong winds blowing the ocean inland, and preventing water from the St. Johns River from escaping back into the ocean, helped worsen the flood situation in Jacksonville. Five people reportedly died in Florida and 37 in the Caribbean as a result of Irma, ABC News reported.

Irma is expected to drop 2 to 5 inches of rain across SC and northern portions of Georgia, Alabama and Mississippi.

The Category 1 storm continues to lash northern Florida, but it will weaken to a tropical storm Monday afternoon after it crosses the state line into Georgia. It gradually weakened to a tropical storm by Monday morning.

HURRICANE Irma is showing signs of weakening and could be downgraded to a tropical storm on Monday.

TS Irma will exit Florida this afternoon, but not before bringing another day of bands of heavy rain, the risk of tornadoes, potentially damaging winds, and unsafe storm surge.

More than two million people were also left without power across the state, which is home to President Trump's famous resort, Mar-a-Lago, located in Palm Beach on the east side of the state.

Airlines scramble to evacuate residents ahead of Hurricane Irma
Because of Tropical Storm Irma's high winds - Delta has cancelled 900 flights today including many at their hub in Atlanta. Jacksonville International Airport (JAX) - Airport open, but check with your airline for information about flight status.

Damage estimates from Hurricane Irma's battering of Florida over the weekend look smaller than first feared.

The forecast path for Hurricane Jose in the next few days is so odd that internet commenters have come up with the advice, "Go home, Jose, you're drunk".

Florida outages for Duke Energy Corp, which serves the northern and central parts of the state, increased to nearly 1.2 million, according to the company's website.

Numerous evacuation orders extended until at least Monday due in part to flooding, massive power outages and downed electric lines.

Miami International Airport, one of the busiest in the country, halted passenger flights through at least Monday.

Irma will bring high winds and heavy rain to parts of the state starting today and lasting into Tuesday.
