The impact of Hurricane Irma - latest update
Sep 11 2017



As of 20:00 EDT on Sunday 10 September, Irma had passed over the Florida Keys as a Category 4 Hurricane with sustained winds of over 130 mph. Thereafter, it made landfall near Naples, Florida as a Category 3 Hurricane with winds at around 120 mph before being degraded to a Category 2 hurricane, after reaching landfall. Irma is expected to weaken further as it moves over land.

 

Hurricane and storm surge warnings extend northward along the Florida coast to include the Florida Keys, Lake Okeechobee, Florida Bay and around the southern Florida peninsula. A tropical storm watch has been issued north of Fernandina Beach to Altamaha Sound, Georgia.

 

Hurricane warnings remain in place for most of the Bahamas. Tropical storm and hurricane conditions are expected to spread northward across the remainder of the warning areas through Monday (11 September). Hurricane watches and tropical storm warnings extend to outlying areas.
