  • $290 Billion Price Tag Predicted For Harvey And Irma Damage

In addition to the destruction the storm has brought, Irma knocked out power to more than 60 percent of Florida's homes and businesses. The company said its customers on the state's east coast should expect most power to be restored by about September 17, while customers on the state's west coast should expect most power to be restored by September 22. The dead in SC included a man struck by a tree limb while clearing storm debris and a man who died of carbon monoxide poisoning from a generator inside his mobile home. FlightAware.com says about 2,000 USA flights scheduled for Tuesday were canceled by early afternoon, including about 500 in Miami and 400 in Orlando.

Irma hit the Keys as a Category 4 storm, with wind speeds up to 130 miles per hour. About a third of Florida's population (about 6.5 million people) were ordered to evacuate their homes ahead of the storm. But displaced residents and business owners from Key Largo, Tavernier and Islamorada near the mainland were allowed to return for their first glimpse of the damage Tuesday morning.

As for Jacksonville in north-eastern Florida, the city's website warned residents: "Stay inside". Over 350 people were rescued from the flooding, but no casualties were reported there.

"The storm surge flooding in Miami is a mere fraction of what would have happened if the core of the storm had been further east", Rick Knabb, former director of the National Hurricane Center, said in a tweet. Naples saw almost 12 inches of rain and a 7-foot storm surge. Something they have been saying since "day one" was how Hurricane Irma was going to be different than Hurricane Matthew because Volusia wouldn't be one of the few counties affected.

So, if you're among those whose homes and finances were spared, donating to community-based aid funds would be an appropriate way to express gratitude for your good fortune. Additionally, more than 100 traffic lights were out. At least 36 people were left dead in the storm's wake across the Caribbean.
