Nine Million People Facing Risk of Blackout in Florida
Emera's Tampa Electric utility said the storm could affect up to 500,000 of the 730,000 homes and businesses it serves. More than 200,000 had electricity restored mostly by automated devices.

Although Miami will miss the worst of Irma's top winds of 130 miles per hour, the Miami has seen gusts of up to 100 miles per hour.

Hurricane-force winds are continuing throughout southern Florida, including the Keys. That storm flooded northeast Florida, destroying homes in St. Augustine and the surrounding area.
