Irma weakens into a tropical depression

Editor's note: This is a developing story that is being constantly updated as the storm progresses.

Two storm-related deaths were reported in Georgia, where Irma uprooted large large trees.

Communities along Georgia's coast were swamped by storm surge and rainfall arriving at high tide Monday afternoon.

The rain and winds were expected to last through the night.

At least two people have died in SC: a 57-year-old man was killed after a tree limb fell on him and a 21-year-old died in a vehicle crash.

Jacksonville, the largest city geographically in the country, is grappling with a record storm surge and huge flooding.

Irma turned Jacksonville's Memorial Park into an unrecognizable lake. The quake was labeled by many meteorologists as the worst natural disaster in a century.

"If we aren't already pumping the fuel off of them and getting them out, they're waiting to approach berths", Bowman said.

We have teams of reporters and photographers fanned out throughout Florida and Georgia for continuing coverage of Hurricane Irma. "We were in shock when we went outside", Garcia, 34, told CNN.

While Irma raked Florida's Gulf Coast, forecasters warned that the entire state was in danger because of the sheer size of the storm.

The NHC is monitoring another hurricane, Jose, which was spinning in the Atlantic about 1130km west of Florida.

A man was found dead in Winter Garden, Florida, after being electrocuted by a downed power line, local police said.

The eye of the storm hit the small fishing village of Goodland, located at the southeast corner of Marco Island.

How to handle flood damage after a hurricane if you're uninsured
This is as the program has struggled financially to cover increasing amounts of losses from increasingly frequent flooding events. When it comes to damage from Hurricanes Harvey and Irma, several types of insurance come into play.

The oil basket had gained over a dollar at the start of last week on Monday to close at $51.34 for a barrel of 159 litres. At present, petroleum products have been put outside the Goods and Services Tax Bill ambit.

About half of DeKalb County lost power due to Hurricane Irma
Georgia Power says that it could days - or even weeks - for electricity to return to some areas of the state. Georgia EMC utilities brought in 3,000 crew members from 13 states to help out.

More than 50% of the gas stations in seven metropolitan areas in Florida were without fuel, according to data published Tuesday from GasBuddy, a effect of the disruptive force of Hurricane Irma, which swept over Florida this past weekend.

The system has maximum sustained winds of 50 miles per hour while moving 17 miles per hour north-northwest over Georgia.

The body of a 62-year-old man who climbed a ladder behind his home was found under debris on the roof of his shed in southwest Georgia, where winds topped 40 miles per hour, Worth County sheriff's spokeswoman Kannetha Clem said.

About 20 cruise lines have Miami as a home port or a port of call, according to the PortMiami website, and many have had to move ships out of the area and revise schedules.

President Trump hasn't yet announced details of a trip to Florida in the aftermath of Irma, but spent most of the weekend at Camp David huddling with emergency officials and said Sunday he plans to visit "very soon".

"Have not seen Georgia Power yet, but we know they're coming", Buff Leavy of the Brunswick News said in a video report Tuesday morning.

Alabama: 23,000 customers were without power, according to Alabama Power.

The magnitude of those losses - the fact of two Category 4 hurricanes within the space of weeks after the hottest year on record - hopefully will wake officials such as Mr. Scott to the need for foresight in preparing for future storms in an era of climate change while putting the economy on a track to slow greenhouse-gas emissions.

Officials were struggling Monday to reach areas of the Florida Keys, as some of the islands were hard to access. "Especially for the keys, it's going to be a long road", he commented.

Large debris is blocking access, and a 150-foot stretch "has some buckling", Newman said. He said 19,500 electric workers have been deployed in the restoration effort. Now, evacuated Floridians are sitting in bumper-to-bumper traffic to head home and face monumental cleanups throughout the state. "It means it hasn't gotten to us yet", Koon said.

Some 540,000 people were ordered to evacuate days earlier from Savannah and the rest of Georgia's coast. "It's the worst storm I've ever seen", said Bill South of the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration. It was the first Category 4 landfall in Florida since 2004.

"Stay in place, make sure it's a secure place as much as you can do so and stay off the roads,"said Governor Nathan Deal during a news conference on Sunday".
