Hurricane Irma is barreling up the Tampa Bay, bringing heavy rainfall and powerful winds. The deadly hurricane, which is now a Category 2 storm with sustained winds of 100 miles per hour, was moving east of the Tampa metro area.
Some 3.5 million Floridians were without power on Sunday.
Millions of Floridians are under orders to evacuate, and many are desperately seeking shelter from the storm.

Hurricane Irma was downgraded to Category 1 early Monday, according to the National Hurricane Center, as it moved northeast of Tampa.

More than three million people in Florida were without power, officials said.

Hurricane Irma lashed the Florida mainland. Three persons have been killed after the landfall by the storm due to which at least 30 deaths are attributable so far.

With its high winds and rains now impacting all of south Florida, the storm is currently moving up along Florida’s western Gulf coast from Naples to Fort Myers and the densely populated Tampa Bay peninsula.

Six million people, one third of the state’s population, have been ordered to flee the path of the hurricane, which weakened to a Category Two storm as it churned past the Keys yesterday, packing top winds of 177 kilometers per hour.

The storm made its second Florida landfall, hitting Marco Island near the popular shopping and golf destination of Naples, hours after striking the Keys island chain. After a cabinet briefing from Homeland Security and emergency officials, President Donald Trump said he would travel to the state “very soon.”

Before, the landfall in the US state, it destroyed enough in the Caribbean earlier this week. A total of 1.5 million people were evacuated from there. It also affected the US Virgin Islands, Puerto Rico, the Dominican Republic, Haiti and the Turks and Caicos. The Bahamas were spared Irma’s worst
