50+ Most Shocking Photos And Videos Of Irma Aftermath

Hurricane Irma battered Florida with triple-digit wind and left many residents without electricity. It hit lower Florida Keys with wind speeds of up to 130 m.p.h. early on Sunday morning. Many streets of Miami are now submerged under water, and three construction cranes collapsed. Though the hurricane has now been downgraded, it still has sustained winds of 70 m.p.h. as it moves further inland.

“Power lines are down throughout the state. We’ve got roads that are impassable, so everybody’s got to be patient as we work through this,” said Florida governor Rick Scott. Florida is now launching a relief operation, with care needed for victims, cleaning up of debris and restoration of power as the top priorities.
