Millions of Florida Homes and Businesses Still Don't Have Power

The Latest: Gov Scott: State dealing with fuel, traffic jams

Irma was downgraded to a tropical storm over Florida, but it still had winds near hurricane force. "I'm not really that freaked out, it's just the storm surge I'm anxious about", said Chris. It also spread misery into Georgia and SC as it moved inland with winds at 50 miles per hour, causing flooding and power outages.

Duke's outages soared to 390,000 from 60,000 in a span of four hours yesterday evening, and the company warned its 1.8 million customers in northern and central Florida that outages could ultimately exceed a million.

The massive storm triggered evacuation orders for 5.6 million people before it made two landfalls in the state Sunday.

Florida emergency management officials estimate almost 13 million residents - two-thirds of the state's population - remain without power.

He said boats were cast ashore, water, sewers and electricity were knocked out, and "I don't think I saw one trailer park where nearly everything wasn't overturned". "What's going to happen now?"

As Hurricane Irma approaches Florida the point of impact is becoming more clear and it's better news for the city of Miami but not for Tampa.

A tornado spun off by Irma was reported on the Georgia coast, and firefighters inland had to rescue several people after trees fell on their homes.

There will be heavy rain accumulations into Wednesday in parts of Florida, Georgia, Alabama, South Carolina, Mississippi and North Carolina, forecasters said. He and his wife waited in long lines at the grocery store before finally finding a place they were able to get the last three cases of water at.

Miami and other heavily populated areas of southeastern Florida are on the worst side of the storm.

A storm surge warning has been issued for much of the Florida Peninsula and extended into southern Carolina. Petersburg area were braced for its first direct hit from a major hurricane since 1921.

Irma is forecast to bring eight to 15 inches of rain to the area through Tuesday night, with 20 or more inches possible in certain areas. And there's plenty more damage to come as the storm moves up to Tampa.
