Irma hit southwestern Florida on Sunday morning as a unsafe Category 4 storm, the second-highest level on the five-step Saffir-Simpson scale. Monday offered a mixed forecast for Miami-Dade County - gusts of winds of up to 50 miles per hour in the early morning hours, with a sunny upper 80s temperature day predicted and the possibility of showers and thunderstorms. "We just cannot gamble on the wind". The waters took their toll on Miami Beach and downtown Miami, leaving some areas in Brickell with waist-deep flooding. And as Irma continues to track northward, unsafe wind conditions will extend into Georgia, Alabama, Tennessee and the Carolinas over the next few days, according to the NHC.

"It is unsafe to be walking out there", according to a Tampa city official.

"We are already responding to Hurricane Irma with the largest pre-storm restoration workforce ever assembled, not just in our company's history, but in USA history", Florida Power & Light President and CEO Eric Silagy said in a prepared statement.

DeMaria said the National Hurricane Center on the west campus of Florida International University, has received several gusts close to or over 100 miles per hour. There are widespread water and power outages, and the Florida Keys Aqueduct Authorities issued a precautionary boil water notice.

In a worst-case scenario, the spent fuel could release radiation if exposed to the air, but Scott Burnell of the U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission said that was extremely unlikely.
