hurricane Irma

Florida residents have begun to dig out in hurricane-scarred Florida and officials are slowly piecing together the scope of Irma's vicious path of destruction across the peninsula.      

The fate of the Florida Keys, where Irma rumbled through with Category 4 muscle, remains largely a question mark. Communication and access were cut and authorities dangled only vague assessments of ruinous impact.

      

Florida Gov. Rick Scott called the storm "devastating" after emerging from a Monday fly-over of the Keys.

If you have plans on traveling through Atlanta out of Monroe Regional Airport then you might have problems the next few days. 

"Due to the weather, all the flights are cancelled throughout today," said Airport Director Ron Phillips. Flights to Atlanta are cancelled until further notice. It all depends on how fast Irma moves through Georgia.

Irma, now a Tropical Storm, is expected to bring a lot of rain and windy conditions to the Atlanta area today and overnight tonight.
