Hurricane Irma is slamming Naples, Florida after making landfall at Marco Island and pummeling Miami today. Irma is currently a Category 2 storm with sustained winds of 110 miles-per-hour. Forecasters say that parts of South Florida could see up to 15-feet of storm surge by tonight. The storm is expected to spin up the west coast of Florida and then move inland over northern Florida and southwestern Georgia Monday afternoon.
Florida Power and Lighting says more than two-million households are now without power as Hurricane Irma thrashes the peninsula. Utility officials are advising Floridians to plan for prolonged outages. Three-quarters of Miami-Dade is currently without power. Around five-million customers are expected to lose power.
