At 5 a.m., Irma had 75 mph sustained winds - just 2 miles shy of becoming a tropical storm - and was moving north-northwest at 18 mph. Hours of strong winds blowing the ocean inland, and preventing water from the St. Johns River from escaping back into the ocean, helped worsen the flood situation in Jacksonville. "But most importantly, we've got to save every life, and we've got to make sure people understand it's still risky". Affected states include Florida, Georgia, Alabama, Tennessee, South Carolina and North Carolina.

The storm has slowly weakened as it traveled up the Florida coast, and was officially downgraded on Monday morning to a tropical storm.

The storm could still deliver wind gusts up to 73 miles per hour as it barrels northwest into Alabama early Tuesday, and weaken further to a tropical depression, with gusts up to 39 miles per hour, as it arrives in northern MS and western Tennessee on Tuesday afternoon.

He made his way down to Florida last week ahead of Hurricane Irma.

While Irma weakened as it moved up the state toward Central Florida, its wind field unwound from its center - spreading its destruction across a much wider swath of the state. "The official forecast keeps it out over the Atlantic as a hurricane over the next five days".

Lawmakers' Assets Known, Time to Talk of Income Source
The Supreme Court was also informed that the initial inquiry in the matter against some of the lawmakers is underway. The CBDT also claimed to have periodically shared the probe status and result with the Election Commission.

Some 6.5 million people, about a third of the state's population, had been ordered to evacuate southern Florida.

The figure represents nearly 60% of the state's electricity users, who were still experiencing power outage as of 9 p.m. EDT Monday, according to the state's Division of Emergency Management.

Miami International Airport, one of the busiest in the country, halted passenger flights through at least Monday.

However, Jacksonville is experiencing unsafe flooding because of a combination of heavy rains and the counterclockwise winds from Irma.
