At least three killed as Hurricane Irma lashes Florida — Live updates

Florida State, Florida cancel football games because of Irma

European model forecast position for Irma on Sunday evening, and future track.

Irma is moving north-northwest at nearly 18 mph - a motion that's expected to continue through Tuesday.

About 100 people were seen walking today along what was once Old Tampa Bay - a body of water near downtown.

Another 15 were reported to have died in Chiapas, the state to Oaxaca's southeast, with four fatalities in neighboring Tabasco state. And that's going to be very difficult to survive.

Residents huddled in shelters watching for updates as Irma began its assault on Florida early Sunday as a Category 4 storm, lashing the area with winds near 130 mph (215 kph) and drenching rain. "Stay indoors and be safe".

Pictures taken by terrified locals caught up in the midst of Irma reveal the low-lying Keys being buffeted by winds and heavy rain.

The nuclear emergency plans, the group said, do not account for the destruction already caused by mega-storm conditions that could see emergency workers unable to cope with an added radiological disaster.

A man walks into the wind in downtown Miami. It was at that, he said, that Irma's southwest eyewall sort of came apart, no longer a perfect circle on satellite imagery.

Other big power utilities in Florida are units of Emera Inc and Southern Co, which also operates the biggest electric companies in Georgia and Alabama.

Waves of up to 11 metres smashed businesses along Havana's sea side drive on Sunday morning (Sept 10) in the wake of Hurricane Irma, pummelling famous hotels such as the Copacabana, which were evacuated along with flooded neighbourhoods. Trees and power lines were down across the area.

"Our response has been as good as anybody else's and indeed I can tell you the French have asked now for our assistance in helping to lift troops and material to some of their islands". Many heeded that request - but were stuck on clogged highways. Still, he guessed, it will be grouped with two other South Florida storms: 1992's Andrew and 2005's Wilma.

Irma's turn northward was expected to occur around 240 kilometres east of the capital.

Meanwhile, Sir Richard Branson has said most of the buildings and vegetation on Necker, which is among the 50 British Virgin Islands, had been destroyed or badly damaged by Hurricane Irma. Its force sent shockwaves and flooding inward. A pregnant Key West woman, fled to Miami-Dade and delivered a baby girlon Thursday at Baptist Hospital in Kendall.

Tampa was not alone.

Fadel described "dazed couples" at a city hotel and staff looking "exhausted, answering panicked customers, constant phone calls and thinking about securing their own homes and families". "Much of the radiological emergency plans presently on paper would never work in reality".

Also, many more people are now at risk. In large swaths of Florida, Irma has brought dangerous floodwaters, knocking out power and turning human possessions into debris. A tide gauge in Naples has measured a water level of 3.9 feet above mean higher high water, the center said, a roughly 9-foot increase in three hours. The Pasco County Sheriff's Office tweeted the warning late on Saturday. Deputy Julie Bridges, 42, was driving her patrol car on her way home to pick up supplies for an evacuation shelter where she'd been working. But will we survive the aftermath? "Life first", said Miami evacuee Manny Zuniga, who had his wife, two kids, two dogs and a ferret with him on his trip to safety in Arkansas.

"He's spoken numerous times to Gov. Scott and Sen".

The government of Antigua discontinued the tropical storm warning for Barbuda and Anguilla.
