Hurricane Irma Miami Photos: Must-See Videos & Pictures

Hurricane Irma has downgraded to a tropical storm on Monday, but is still potentially life-threatening as a result of storm surges and flooding. Miami really received the smack-down from the hurricane. Millions are without power in Florida as a result of gushing floods.

So far, two million people are without power and five Floridians are dead. On Sunday morning, a Florida correctional officer and a sheriff died after a head-on collision  during Hurricane Irma in Hardee County, the Miami Herald reported.

ABC reported “one person was found dead in a home in Shark Key on Sunday.” Meanwhile, two people were found dead in Monroe County, which is part of the Florida Keys.

Miami-Dade police are assessing the damage on the street caused by Hurricane Irma…

At around 9:10 A.M., Hurricane Irma first made contact with the U.S. in the Cudjoe Key. The National Hurricane Center quickly responded to this disturbance with “Hurricane #Irma makes landfall at Cudjoe Key in the lower Florida Keys.”

The NHC also wrote: ““The center of Hurricane Irma made landfall at Cudjoe Key in the lower Florida Keys at 9:10 am EDT. A gust to 106 mph (171 km/h) was just reported at the National Key Deer Refuge in Big Pine Key.”

The biggest reason why people are dying because of drowning in the storm is because of storm surges. One to fifteen foot storm surges are expected along the west coast of Florida, from Marco Island to the Florida Keys.

“Storm surge flooding of 10-15 ft is now expected along the SW Florida coast,” the NHC wrote in a tweet. “This is a dire and life-threatening situation.”
