Hurricane Irma: Gov. Scott Says Keys Face 'Long Road' To Recovery

Hurricane Irma: Eye of storm hits Florida west coast

In South Carolina, a 57-year-old man was killed after a tree limb fell on him, while a 21-year-old died in a vehicle crash, said local officials.

Hurricane Irma has been downgraded to a tropical storm as it moves further inland across the southeast USA, leaving a trail of destruction in its wake that is yet to be fully assessed.

Around midday Monday, Irma also spread misery into Georgia and SC as it moved inland with winds at 50 miles per hour, causing some flooding and power outages. That's about 1.5 million homes and businesses without power, more than half of the homes in the tri-county area.

At Big Pine Key, just west of Marathon, the monster storm's Category 4 winds, churning 130 miles per hour, shredded one neighborhood, CBS News' Mark Strassmann reports.

Irma hit the Florida Keys as a Category 4 storm with the storm surge as much as 10 to 15 feet. Officials closed major bridges.

We'll still be breezy with a few light showers at times today, but conditions will rapidly improve from south to north into late afternoon. "I don't have any numbers on fatalities at this point".

Irma has been blamed for three deaths in Florida, one in Georgia, and at least 36 in the Caribbean. Cities flooded, power lines were downed and trees were uprooted across the state. Gov. A state tally early Tuesday showed near 5.5 million outages, or 53% of the electrical accounts, were still offline. FEMA chief Brock Long said some areas of South Florida will not have electrical power for weeks. "There is flooding throughout the city". The storm was weakening, but still potent, as it traveled northward through Georgia and SC.
