Deaths in Florida Keys takes Irma's death toll to 61

Deaths in Florida Keys takes Irma's death toll to 61

The storm is now technically a post-tropical cyclone or tropical depression-one with wind speeds at 38 miles per hour or less-and is moving northwest at a speed of 10 mph.

There are no coastal watches or warnings in effect for Jose, the center said.

At its peak, it prompted the evacuation of 6.5 million people, the largest evacuation in modern United States history.

Although frustrated Floridians are anxious to return home, officials are still enforcing an access ban in the Lower Keys as they evaluate the infrastructure, the roadways, health hazards and other safety measures.

"This is going to be a frustrating event". In a parting blow to the state before pushing on to Georgia and beyond, the storm caused record flooding in and around Jacksonville, causing untold damage and prompting dozens of rescues.

Most House Republicans from Florida were in their state over the weekend to help local communities prepare and withstand the storm.

While Harvey's rains and floodwater wrought major damage in Houston, the power it produced is dwarfed by Irma. The upside is hurricane season slows down from here until the end of November, so everyone along the coasts should be able to breathe easy again in a few short months.

Irma devastated several Caribbean islands en route to Florida.

The US aircraft carrier Abraham Lincoln was off Florida's east coast and two amphibious assault ships were en route to help in the Keys.

However, the brutal campaign has maintained the support of many Filipinos exhausted of drug-driven crime in the country. The agency has long complained it lacks manpower and resources to fully investigate the killings.

The massive storm triggered evacuation orders for 5.6 million people before it made two landfalls in the state Sunday.

The Department of Defense warned that the 10,000 people who stayed in the Keys may be forced to evacuate. She did not have a count on how many.

The centre of Irma moved into Alabama on Tuesday and will head into western Tennessee by Tuesday evening with maximum sustained winds of 40.2kmh.

The US National Weather Service said that Hurricane Irma is the strongest storm ever in the Atlantic.

"I had a friend that was in the Keys and said my property was fine - a couple of trees fallen down and everything, but everything looked good", Eddie Tejera said.

Some areas, mostly in the Upper Keys, have water, but food and water distribution stations have been set up in Key West.

As officials and residents began to assess the damage around the state, Governor Rick Scott said he would travel to the Keys in the state's south.

If original projections had materialized, Tampa could have faced significant flooding issues, downed trees, a downtown inundated with water and people displaced for a long time, he said.
