Hurricane Irma batters Florida with catastrophic storm surge, wind and rain

Follow ACCU Weather

After blasting the northern Caribbean, deadly Hurricane Irma has turned toward the United States.
While the strength of the storm has wavered, destructive winds, flooding rain and inundating seas will occur across Florida into Monday.
"Unfortunately, there is no way the United States is going to avoid another catastrophic weather event," Dr. Joel N. Myers, founder, president and chairman of AccuWeather said.
"There will be massive damage in Florida. [It will be] the worst single hurricane to hit Florida since Hurricane Andrew in 1992," Myers said.
Preparations should already be completed across the Sunshine State.
The current track of Irma will bring severe and life-threatening impacts to all of the Florida Keys and a large portion of the Florida Peninsula, including Key West, Key Largo, Tampa, Fort Myers, Naples, Sarasota and Miami. More HERE
