Shocking footage shows Florida streets turning into rivers — Hurricane Irma

Eerie video shows effects of Hurricane Irma storm surges

Irma is now located about 30km from Lakeland, Florida, the NHC said, adding that hurricane and tropical storm warnings remain in the state. The company took offline one of two reactors at a nuclear plant south of Miami. In nearby Bonita Springs, Melinda Jarbo (ph) described to us galloping, wet, wet wind.

French aid includes helicopters, engineering equipment, medical supplies and a million liters (265,000 gallons) of water.

Elsewhere in Polk County, winds knocked a utility pole and lines onto a sheriff's cruiser late Sunday, illustrating the dangerous conditions for rescuers. Scott has called up and sent out 7,000 National Guardsmen across the state, some of whom have been dispatched to the more than 400 shelters that have been set up. Ports critical to supplying the state with gasoline and diesel were also closed, and energy companies including Exxon Mobil Corp. and Kinder Morgan Inc. shut fuel terminals and pipelines. "It was the tidal surge, combined with all the rain from the nor'easter, which was six inches, and then Irma dumped another 10 to 15 inches".

CAMILA DOMONOSKE, BYLINE: Good morning, Mary Louise.

That was a familiar story: People who evacuated from Miami to Tampa.

DOMONOSKE: You know, the heaviest winds were on Sunday afternoon as the eyewall was approaching us.

Prime Minister Gaston Browne of Antigua and Barbuda says 95 percent of Barbuda's buildings were either destroyed or severely damaged. Once the eye passed over, it got quieter from there. I mean, all told, it lasted a long time.

French President Emmanuel Macron travels to Saint Martin on Tuesday, and Dutch King Willem-Alexander was visiting Sint Maarten.

Those stocks were hit hard last week as investors braced for Irma, but with Monday's gains have largely retraced their losses.

"Right now, we are worried about lives, not cost", he told reporters. "Thank God that everybody is safe". Mayor Dick Cronin said most people on the island did not evacuate, because they saw the storm moving westward.

Volunteer Florida and Charity Navigator also offer comprehensive lists of organizations for donation and ways to volunteer in the wake of Hurricane Irma.

And more than 120 homes were being evacuated early Monday in Orange County, just outside the city of Orlando, as floodwaters started to pour in.

Still, the scope of damage in Florida and neighboring states paled in comparison with the utter devastation left by Irma as a rare Category 5 hurricane in parts of the Caribbean, where the storm killed nearly 40 people - at least 10 of them in Cuba - before turning its fury on Florida.

Irma continued its slog north along Florida's western coast, weakening to a tropical storm as it moves toward southern Georgia.

KELLY: So the advice still - stay put where you are.

In the Jacksonville area, close to the Georgia line, storm surge brought some of the worst flooding ever seen there, with at least 46 people pulled from swamped homes.

The officers determined that 51-year-old Brian Buwalda was dead at the scene. "Water is up to the mailbox level in some neighborhoods". I think the response was actually pretty strong, especially given the short notice here.

Travel agencies have participated in the relief effort, with the Caribbean Tourism Organization (CTO) launching a GoFundMe to raise money for rebuilding. That was definitely one of - one of the big dangers.

Most Keys residents had followed mandatory evacuation orders, but there were some holdouts who had to hunker down as Irma tore over the island chain popular for fishing and scuba diving.
