Six Million Floridians Left Without Power After Irma

Irma arrives to Florida

The death toll from Irma now stands at 40, mainly from the Caribbean.

CNN also shared drone footage of Tortola and the British Virgin Islands after Hurricane Irma. About 2ft of water has been seen in Miami's financial district, where one major street resembled a river, but the worst damage is expected on the west coast.

"As soon as the wind shifts direction, the water will come back quickly and continue to move inland", CNN meteorologist Judson Jones said.

"The center of Irma will move near the northwestern coast of the Florida Peninsula this morning, cross the eastern Florida Panhandle into southern Georgia this afternoon, and move through southwestern Georgia and eastern Alabama tonight and Tuesday", the National Weather Service predicts.

However, the spokesman for Myanmar's leader, Aung San Suu Kyi, said on Twitter: "We have no policy to negotiate with terrorists". Two Rohingya Muslim refugees urged the Supreme Court to direct the Central government to not deport them to Myanmar.

"We dealt with it", Curry said.

Most traffic lights in Broward County, which includes Fort Lauderdale, were not functioning on Monday morning, and sand, blown from the county's beaches, covered the A1A highway.

The mass exodus from southern Florida could become one of the largest evacuations in United States history, according to CNN. "Persons located within these areas should take all necessary actions to protect life and property from rising water and the potential for other risky conditions", it said.

Next, Irma is to push into the Gulf states of Georgia, Alabama, Mississippi and north to Tennessee.

The storm has slowly weakened as it traveled up the Florida coast, and was officially downgraded on Monday morning to a tropical storm. "Best word I could say is war zone", he said on Twitter.

South Carolina Gov. Henry McMaster issued a mandatory evacuation for some barrier islands.

Jacksonville, Florida, is about 400 miles from where Irma first made landfall, in the northeastern corner of the state.

Irma tore through Cuba as a Category 5 storm before it reached Florida, killing at least ten people. About two thirds of the state were left without power, according to officials.

The UN Security Council barred North Korea from exporting coal, iron, lead and seafood, along with other restrictions. North Korean ally China and neighboring Russian Federation hold veto power on the Security Council.
