Glenn Burns on Hurricane Irma: 'The worst to come Monday night' for metro

Glenn Burns on Hurricane Irma: 'The worst to come Monday night' for metro

Dr Greg Postel, hurricane and storm specialist and co-host of America's Morning Headquarters on The Weather Channel, said Hurricane Irma had caused "remarkable weather".

Local authorities told around 90,000 residents of Miami Beach and people from some parts of the Keys they could go home but warned it might not be prudent to remain there.

"This is going to be a frustrating event", Long added, and "it's going to take some time to let people back into their homes, particularly in the Florida Keys".

Irma has been blamed for three deaths in Florida, one in Georgia, and at least 36 in the Caribbean. The company updated technology - which Silagy says now allows it to pinpoint outages without customers needing to report them - and strengthened power lines and poles. Hurricane Harvey plowed into Houston late last month, killing about 60 and wreaking some $180bn in damage, largely through flooding.

No timetable for reopening the rest of the Keys was given.

Footage from the Grassy Key island shot by U.S. broadcaster NBC showed downed power lines, felled trees, and streets strewn with debris and vehicles.

As of 11 a.m. Tuesday, 27 flights are scheduled to depart from Charlotte to Florida, including 17 flights to Miami.

"I just hope everybody survived", Scott said after flying over the archipelago Monday.

Beyersdorf and Jensen left northern Wisconsin on Friday morning and raced to southern Florida to be in place ahead of Irma's impact.

AccuWeather founder Dr. Joel Myers detailed the historic impact of the hurricanes, which are reportedly the first pair of Category 4 or higher storms to strike the US mainland in the same season.

As of Monday morning, almost 60 percent of the entire state - close to 6 million customers - had lost electricity.

More than 116,000 were reported to have taken refuge in some 530 shelters across Florida, The Washington Post and other news outlets reported.

Trump declares state of emergency in Georgia
Georgia Governor Nathan Deal has extended the State of Emergency for 64 additional counties, bringing the total to 94 counties. Meteorologist Katie Walls said that the time for Georgia to be most weather-aware is from Monday morning until Tuesday morning.

Katherine Heckler of Florida said, "we want to make sure that our gas tank is filled at all times".

Other factors - the strength of Irma when it hit (Category 5) and flimsy building construction - helped account for the destruction in these hard-hit islands.

"There are like a lot of downed trees and a few downed power lines on state roads", Belk said.

A 55-year-old man was killed on Monday afternoon after a tree fell on his house.

It was still risky, with high winds reaching up to 50 miles (80 kilometers) per hour, heavy downpours and tornado threats in Georgia's southwestern region, according to the National Hurricane Center.

And it's still peak hurricane season.
