    JACKSONVILLE, FL - URGENT Floodwaters NOW!


    The Jacksonville Sheriff's Office warned people in evacuation zones A and B along the St. Johns River to "Get out NOW."

    They say river is at historic flood levels and likely to get worse at high tide around 2 p.m.

    On its Facebook page, the sheriff's office told those who need help evacuating to "put a white flag in front of your house. A t-shirt, anything white."

    Rescue teams were ready to deploy.

    NORTH FLORIDA - GEORGIA - ALABAMA - TENNESSEE - SOUTH CAROLINA

    Forecasters expect Irma's center to move into southwestern Georgia later Monday and then into Alabama Tuesday morning and eventually western Tennessee.

    Northern Florida and southern Georgia should keep getting soaked, with rain totals eventually accumulating to 8 to 15 inches. Isolated parts of central Georgia, eastern Alabama and southern South Carolina may get up to 10 inches of rain.

    CHARLESTON, SC - tide levels during Irma could surpass those seen during Hurricane Matthew

    Wind speeds up to 72 miles per hour were recorded on Folly Beach Monday morning,

    SCE&G is reporting almost 47,000 outages across the state, including 10,715 in Charleston County as of 11:45 a.m. SCE&G maintains an online outage status map so you can check on what's going on in your area: https://www.sceg.com/outages-emergen...ges/outage-map

    A flash flood warning has been issued for the Charleston area. Heavy rains and storm surge levels up to four feet coupled with high tide reaching Charleston after noon could lead to tidal crests exceeding those seen during Hurricane Matthew, which surpassed 9 feet.

    An updated list of street closures in Charleston due to flooding can be found on the city's updated map. http://gis.charleston-sc.gov/road-closures/

    USS Abraham Lincoln aircraft carrier deployed to Key West

    Today officials received word that the USS Abraham Lincoln aircraft carrier was enroute to Key West to aid in the hurricane Irma recovery efforts. There has not been any significant changes since early this morning but officials said more resources will continue to the Keys throughout the day.

    Miami Dade Red Cross is bringing 10,000 Meals-Ready-to-Eat (MREs) as residents who remain behind “are consuming resources at a rapid rate.”

    The Florida DOT has deemed the Jewfish Creek Bridge “safe to travel” along with the five bridges east of Key Largo that connect the Florida Keys to mainland Florida.

    Power is available in Key Largo and as far south as Islamorada.

    Marathon, the lower keys in Key West are still without power, water and communications. Officials are using satellite phones to relay important information.

    I'm amazed at the integrity of the structures in South Florida. We should all build to these standards along the coast.
    so glad you were all able to update with your status, and VERY glad you all survived fairly well. Hope the air temp isn't too uncomfortable.

    We still have a few more to "find" ... hope they aren't having to deal with total chaos still. Biting fingernails here.....

    CARIIS ... are you able to peek in.... if so, how is it going there? Lady Bug still attached to you?

    Our power finally went off around 10:30 this morning after Irma left us for the northern part of the state - and is still off.

    FPL is busy restoring power to businesses first and I need to conserve the battery on the laptop.

    Oh and we need to let the front door dry out - the wood swelled up so much I couldn't get it open but DH finally did. Well we need the air circulation.

    Florida Power & Light in SW Florida said power first will be restored to essential services such as hospitals, shelters, communication centers and law enforcement, as well as getting traffic signals operational. The next step is to fix main circuits that will restore electricity to the most customers in the least time, neighborhoods come next, then individuals in remote locations.

Hopefully, they escaped the boat and are safe somewhere. Reddit users are really concerned about them so I am sure we'll have updates.

    Gas Station Guy in the Lower/Middle Keys - had the only gas station open during the storm and was able to help the police/fire/rescue teams


    Pole Guy - I assume they are talking about the guy that tied himself to a tree on Miami beach to feel the effects of the winds? I recall seeing a newscaster showing this.
    Urgh the boat guys makes me feel sick, why would you be so nuts?! Looking at their fb pics, they look like fit men. Fingers crossed for them

    In Charleston, water levels has surpassed hurricane Matthew levels and moving on to Hurricane Hugo Level of 12 feet. Levels are currently approaching 10 feet and expected to move higher. See the fire hose of water that is firing into Charleston on the radar. Flooded roads as well as the battery in Charleston are closed.

    Are you safe from flooding, Henry? Love beautiful Charleston, hope you are safe.
