Lee County said state and local Department of Transportation inspectors would check out the causeways to the coastal islands early Monday - and warned that "due to Hurricane Irma's significant wave action, the Sanibel Causeway may have been impacted".

Hurricane Irma weakened to a Category 1 storm early Monday as it marched up the USA state of Florida's northwestern coast, with its eye located about 25 miles (40 kilometers) northeast of the vulnerable Tampa area.

The storm departed the Keys at 12 p.m. local time and made a second landfall at 3:35 p.m.in Marco Island, Florida, with winds gusting up to 130 miles per hour (209 km/h) and maximum sustained winds of 115 miles per hour (185 km/h), the National Hurricane Center (NHC) reported. Tropical-storm-force winds extend almost 415 miles from the center.

MARTIN: Irma has already caused flooding in Miami-Dade and Broward Counties and power outages for more than 2 million homes and businesses in Florida.
