Hurricane Irma Orlando Photos: Aftermath Videos & Pictures


Hurricane Irma hit hard in Orlando, Florida. The storm left behind a path of destruction and at least two deaths. Irma knocked out power for nearly a million homes and businesses in Central Florida. The hurricane has downgraded to a tropical depression and has moved out of Florida, leaving a trail of carnage in its wake.

“At least two people were killed during the storm in Orange County,” the Orlando Sentinel newspaper reported. “About 900,000 homes and businesses were still without power Monday night in five Central Florida counties, and residents came outside after hours indoors to find downed trees blocking streets and damaging homes and cars.”

The Orla Vista neighborhood flooded, causing more than 200 people to evacuate, according to Orlando Sentinel.

His sister held up a sign, reading “Best Brother Ever! He Stayed in FL to Protect his house. Get Me his tickets to protect our house. Go Broncos”.
