NOWHERE IN THE FLORIDA KEYS WILL BE SAFE ‘The National Hurricane Center’ Warns

Florida Keys has been reported to get hit Sunday morning.


Hurricane Irma made landfall in Cuba last Friday evening as it was Category 5 hurricane with strongest winds and lashed out the island’s northern coast with a direct hit. It is the first devastating Category 5 hurricane which made the landfall in Cuba since 1924.

Irma was degraded to Category 3 at 11 a.m. Saturday, with wind power of 125 m.p.h., but it was also expected to get stronger again over Florida. Approximately 6.3 million people in the state of Florida have been recommended to leave their homes immediately.

“The storm is here,” Gov. Rick Scott said Saturday morning, noting that the storm surge could reach 15 feet in some places.

“Fifteen feet is devastating and will cover your house,” he said. “Do not think the storm is over when the wind slows down. The storm surge will rush in and it could kill you.”

Hurricane Irma is expected to turn toward Florida and strengthen as it approaches the Florida Keys. Mark DeMaria, acting deputy director of the National Hurricane Center, joins CBSN with the latest forecast.
