Deaths, floods, misery from Irma hit South — WHAT'S HAPPENING

Irma can still pack a punch in coastal Georgia

At least three people in the state were killed by the storm.

Gov. Rick Scott announced he'll join members of the U.S. Coast Guard for an aerial tour Monday afternoon to further assess the damage. "But this one scares me", said Sally Carlson in St. Petersburg, reported the Associated Press. "We anticipate that the worst of the weather will arrive in our eastern most counties on Monday and enter others on Tuesday".

The latest advisory from the National Hurricane Center warned of life-threatening storm surges "Expected in areas of onshore winds along the Florida west coast".

Georgia reported more than 570,000 homes and businesses without electricity, and there were 80,000 in SC. That's more than the population of NY and Los Angeles combined.

"It's enormously important that every American in the path of this storm take the warnings of state and local officials to heart", Pence said.

There's room for more, County Administrator Mike Merrill said, but he urged people to stay put for now. "I just don't know". "We are trying to do everything that we can to get people safe", he said.

She described the confluence of the storm surge, more than 10 inches of rain, and winds from the south pushing water upstream on the river as a "trifecta effect". Utility crews were already on the streets there clearing downed trees and utility lines.

The storm was earlier pummelling the area around the city of Fort Myers. In the Keys, though, he said "there is devastation". "Well, we're about to get punched in the face".

Florida Power & Light, the state's major electricity provider, has almost 20,000 workers deployed around the state. House-to-house searches will begin Monday, and C-130 military cargo planes will bring emergency supplies to the Keys.

"HELP IS ON THE WAY", they promised on Facebook. The governor said the route also needs to be cleared of debris and sand, but should be usable fairly quickly.

However, officials continued to sound warnings that the real danger posed by the hurricane came in the form of storm surge, abnormal and extremely rapid rises in water levels. "A t-shirt, anything white", the office said on its Facebook page.

Some residents went out to find Irma had stolen the water away from the beach.

More than 6.7 million resident were still without power across the Sunshine State as of late Monday, representing about 64 percent of Florida energy customers, according to energy providers.

Irma's rampage across Florida broke records in Jacksonville before heading north to torment Georgia and beyond.

Georgia is expected to see 40-60 miles per hour gusts through Monday night with some areas seeing 70 miles per hour gusts.

Eric Silagy, the CEO of Florida Power & Light, said Irma caused the most widespread damage in the company's history.
