Irma

Powerful winds from Hurricane Irma whipped through southwest Florida on Sunday, downing power lines and leaving a trail of debris behind.

It is blasting up the Southwest of Florida after hitting the city of Miami, with dangerous flooding along long stretches of coast.

Irma has been downgraded from category three to one but still has maximum sustained winds of 75mph (120km/h).

More than 3.4 million homes in the state are without power, with parts of the city of Miami under water.

At least four deaths have been linked to the storm and several areas have brought in curfews.

Florida’s Director of Emergency Management, Bryan Koon, said on Sunday he could not yet confirm or deny reports of multiple deaths and extensive damage.

Search and rescue efforts are due to begin on Monday morning, he said.

Irma cut a devastating track across 10 Caribbean countries and territories, killing at least 28 people there.
