Hurricane Irma: How those receding waters may have saved Tampa

Hurricane Irma Leaves at Least 10 Dead in Cuba

Florida: About 4.4 million customers - which includes homes, organizations and businesses - are without power across the state, authorities said.

Twelve Irma-related fatalities were confirmed by Florida emergency management officials on Tuesday, while authorities in Georgia and SC each reported three deaths from the storm and its immediate aftermath.

Some Floridians say they have no choice but to begin their trip home now. Without electricity, the combination of heat and humidity, combined with residents who require electricity for medical care, is making life hard for Florida residents, especially the elderly. Florida Hospital, a health provider in the state, announced its plans to reopen many of its facilities that were impacted by Irma on Tuesday or Wednesday.

Hollywood Police Chief Tom Sanchez said investigators believe the five deaths at the Rehabilitation Center at Hollywood Hills were heat-related, and added: "The building has been sealed off and we are conducting a criminal investigation". They've been unable to return because of blocked roads and safety checks on bridges.

Still, Governor Scott predicted that recovery could take a long time in many areas.

Federal officials are urging residents to remain patient.

"We never lost power and remain fully staffed".

Lasting power outage was the main challenge still preventing some companies from resuming activities. Jose is still offshore well east of the US mainland.

Hurricane Irma a tough blow to Florida agriculture
The orange crop was worth over $886 million, according to USDA figures, while the grapefruit crop was worth almost $110 million. Another crop hard hit by Irma was Florida's sugar cane, which had a value past year of $561 million, according to the U.S.

Georgia Power reported 870,000 customers without electricity Tuesday morning, which is roughly half of their residential customer base.

Any disaster that wipes out electrical service hits especially hard in the South, where tens of millions of Americans rely on the cocoon of comfort provided by air conditioning.

In Jacksonville, near the Georgia border, Irma left record flooding in its wake.

"The thing to watch is whether small insurance companies are going be able to survive massive amount of claims that we expect with hurricane Irma", Dan Weber, Association of Mature American Citizens CEO and a former Florida state insurance specialist for 30 years, said. Although Puerto Rico did not take a direct hit from Irma, thousands of residents are still without power on the island.

Johnson will visit the British Virgin Islands and Anguilla, where Britain has sent almost 1,000 military personnel to help both with security, and what he described as an "unprecedented" relief effort.

For Trump and Vice President Mike Pence, the visit Thursday to Naples and Fort Myers on Florida's southwestern coast offered the chance to see how people were coping and how the Federal Emergency Management Agency has responded. And in many cities, large numbers of filling stations don't have power, according to the GasBuddy figures. During power outages, residents will sometimes run their generators inside their homes or garages. Fumes from a portable gas generator appeared to have been running inside the house, and the individuals were overcome by fumes. "But seeing a lot of people die and a lot of damage, the magnitude of that storm, I guess people figured, better safe than sorry", he shrugged, as he waited in his truck to get back onto the barrier island where he lived. Alabama: More than 7,000 customers are without electricity, Alabama Power said.

"With operations at the ports getting back to normal, "it seems like the bigger hurdles in returning the state to a state of normalcy will be road conditions and power restoration", analysts at fuel marketer TAC Energy wrote in a client note". But he warns people who evacuated to stay away. Nonetheless, FPL stated it has the largest restoration workforce in us history responding to the electric power outages. "The company expects power to be restored to western Florida - more heavily damaged by the storm - by September 22".

The airport for Fort Lauderdale, Florida, has re-opened Tuesday morning after closing as Hurricane Irma pounded the state. The two nuclear plants have a strong record of weathering intense storms.

With a 3.25 day lifetime as a Category 5, Irma tied an unnamed 1932 Cuba hurricane for the longest lifetime as a Category 5.
