There are widespread water and power outages, and the Florida Keys Aqueduct Authorities issued a precautionary boil water notice.

The storm is expected to further weaken as it moves through Columbus and then northwest through Alabama and into Tennessee.

Irma's top sustained winds are 35 miles per hour (55 kph), and it is moving northwest at 15 miles per hour (24 kph).

It submerged the highway that connects the isolated Florida Keys archipelago with the mainland and flooded streets between Miami office towers.

A tropical storm watch for Georgia was upgraded to a tropical storm warning on Sunday, with meteorologists projecting the state would see the worst of Irma from Monday morning until Tuesday morning. The Florida cities of Jacksonville and Orlando were especially hard-hit by floodwaters.

HURRICANE Irma is showing signs of weakening and could be downgraded to a tropical storm on Monday.

Winter Park police spokesman Garvin McComie says officers responded Monday morning following reports of a man lying in the roadway. I don't think we saw a lot of people going out of the shelters.

Meanwhile, the National Weather Service issued a storm surge warning for the SC coast through the northern border of Charleston County.

At least 10 deaths in the U.S. Southeast are now blamed on Irma, including people hit by falling trees or tree limbs.

But when it came to the west coast of the peninsula, the storm was not as destructive as some had originally feared, Scott said. "Is it because they are just girls ... to me this is stupid, they are our Olympic team". FEMA officials estimated that 25 percent of homes were completely destroyed, while another 65 percent suffered serious damage. The National Guard also has arrived in the island chain amid official fears that a humanitarian crisis may be developing in the stricken region.

The storm surge is called unsafe and life-threatening, but what exactly is it? More than 4,200 US flights scheduled for Monday were cancelled.

In Miami-Dade, the highest gust Sunday was 99 miles per hour, said Ed Rappaport, acting director of the National Hurricane Center.

Jones told reporters Sunday he believes more people evacuated Savannah and nearby communities for Irma than left ahead of Matthew a year ago.
