Hurricane Irma leaves Miami looking like you've never seen it before

A monster Hurricane Irma roared into Florida with 130 miles per hour winds Sunday for what could be a sustained assault on almost the entire Sunshine State, flooding streets, knocking out power to more than 2 million homes and businesses and snapping massive construction cranes over the Miami skyline.

The city even welcomed its first hurricane baby, when a mother delivered a girl in her home in Little Haiti with coaching from emergency responders over the phone.

Cara Kesling and her husband had learned that when Irma was still a Category 5 hurricane, it was heading straight to their home.

ABC News reached out to Jackson Health System but did not immediately receive a response. So she delivered the placenta, also.

According to the Washington Post, Miami Fire Rescue Assistant Fire Chief Pete Gomez said the fire department received more than 430 calls from 7 a.m. Saturday to 7 a.m. Sunday.

There is an unproven belief that storms can increase the number of babies born. "They were surprised that it went down because they felt it was one of the more secure cranes, so we're right on it".
