Searching for gas after Hurricane Irma

Searching for gas after Hurricane Irma

He said it may result in an economic boom for parts of Florida as people rush to help with the recovery effort, but less so for places like Savannah, when historic architecture is destroyed and can't be recovered.

Irma, once ranked as one of the most powerful hurricanes recorded in the Atlantic, hit a wide swath of Florida over the past day, first making landfall on the Florida Keys archipelago and then coming ashore south of Naples and heading up the west coast.

Since making landfall in both the Florida Keys and Marco Island, almost 7 million homes and businesses have been left stranded without electricity as now-Tropical Storm Irma moves through US' Southeast region.

But Irma's overall death toll jumped to at least 40 after Cuba reported that 10 people had been killed there over the weekend.

More than 1 million residents had already lost power by Sunday morning, and it could be days before officials can provide food and water to those struggling in the aftermath of the powerful storm.

For a bit of positive news, the state agency added, "Hurricane Jose does not pose a threat to Florida".

The storm was still hurling 70 miles per hour winds Monday morning and pummeling cities in northeast Florida that had not expected to feel its full wrath.

"The power's going to be out for a long time". "Once this system passes through it's going to be a race to save lives and sustain lives".

It stated that Consumer Food Price Index (CFPI) stood at 1.52% in August 2017 as against 5.91% in the same month of previous year .

"Our first concern is with the losses people have suffered", he said.

"We have no electricity, at least in this pat of Key West, we have no water, we have no internet service", Dave Gonzales, the museum's curator, said on MSNBC Sunday night.

Irma is expected to sap demand for fuel for a time, Goldman Sachs analysts said in a note on Monday, but they cautioned that supply could remain strained because of refining capacity offline after Hurricane Harvey, which hit Texas two weeks ago.

At 9 a.m., more than 200,000 people were in 587 shelters across the state.

Before Jose's slight weakening, it was the first time on record that the Atlantic had two hurricanes with winds of more than 150 miles per hour at the same time, Colorado State University meteorologist Philip Klotzbach said Friday.

"The bad news is that this is some big monster", Trump told reporters at the White House, saying damage from the storm would be very costly.

Roofs ripped off: CNN's team in Key Largo saw some areas devastated by the storm, with roofs ripped off mobile homes in one neighborhood.

Witt and his family chose to wait out the storm at home rather than evacuate. Irma has pushed into Georgia, the Carolinas, Kentucky, and Tennessee as a post-tropical cyclone, still carrying heavy rains but with somewhat lower wind gusts.
