How Hurricane Irma Sucked Water Out of Tampa Bay — Reverse Storm Surge

How Hurricane Irma Sucked Water Out of Tampa Bay — Reverse Storm Surge

Edisto Beach Mayor Jane Darby says a family of four was rescued from their auto about noon Monday from a curve near the beach's pier.

- One person was found dead in Orange County in a single-car accident linked to the storm, police said without providing details.

Darby says emergency officials also rescued three media employees. "This is an extremely unsafe and life-threatening situation". No injuries have been reported yet. These islands only sit 5 to 10 feet above sea level. There were no immediate reports of tornadoes touching down.

Officials adjusted the evacuation plan for Irma as forecasts shifted the storm's predicted path further westward.

And high tide won't hit until afternoon. An 8 p.m. curfew has been imposed for Miami for the next two nights, and no one is allowed out on the streets until they're cleared, Miami Beach officials said.

More than 75,000 people have flocked to shelters in Florida to escape Hurricane Irma's potentially deadly winds and storm surge.

The number of power outages caused by Tropical Storm Irma continues to climb in SC.

CBS Miami reporter David Sutta had a hard time describing the devastation on Monday. It took power crews two hours to disconnect the electricity so the mane could escape the auto. But Irma is so large that even if the eye is to the west, places such as the Miami metropolitan area - will get unsafe winds and water.

While Irma will not directly strike our state, it will cause some hazardous conditions in SC.

Winds and surge have increased along the SC coast.

In Charleston, South Carolina, for instance, downtown streets flooded with rushing water.

The high pressure that brought fall-like weather to the state over the weekend will still keep things dry here on Monday, but clouds will gradually move in from the south. But some around Florida are choosing to stay, a rite of passage for many in the state who boast about the storms they weathered: Camille, Andrew, Katrina and others. It battered Florida's lower half, leaving a trail of tornadoes and storm-surge flooding as its core slowly made its way inland. It could remain a unsafe storm throughout that time. An overall storm-surge warning for the bay area is set until later this evening.

However, hurricane warnings are in place for St Martin and St Barthelemy, both also hit by Irma.

"If you own a power washer. imagine taking it in the face", said CNN's Bill Weir of the torrential rain in Key Largo, some 70 miles south of Miami. Marathon International Airport recently reported a sustained wind of 48 mph (77 kilometers per hour) and a gust to 67 mph (108 kilometers per hour). The biggest problems were in Beaufort and Charleston counties.

Our entire state will be impacted by this storm.

The NHC said the storm "is still life-threatening with risky storm surge, wind and heavy rains". South Carolina Gov. Henry McMaster issued a mandatory evacuation for some barrier islands, while Georgia Gov. Nathan Deal expanded the state of emergency to include 94 counties.

Columbus is still looking at experiencing damaging winds and 2-4 inches of rainfall, with more possible in the afternoon.

Forecasters said Saturday night that Marathon had reported a wind gust of 71 miles per hour (114 kph) and sustained winds of 51 miles per hour (82 kph).

All around the region, millions of homes and businesses lost power during Irma's passage, with many of those outages in Florida.
