Videos from Florida Show the Wrath of Hurricane Irma

The Organic Prepper

If a picture is worth a thousand words, then a video is worth a million. Below you’ll see videos from different parts of Florida that show you the true wrath of Hurricane Irma.

Irma first made landfall in the Florida Keys as a Category 4 hurricane. The second landfall occurred as a Category 3 on Marco Island.

In some positive news, Irma lost power over night and was been downgraded to a Category 1 by the time it hit Tampa and St. Petersburg.  

Millions of Floridians are without power. (Last night it was estimated that 7 million people were in a blackout.) Florida Power and Light has said that the restoration will be a “slow and dangerous process that could take weeks.” (source)

The storm also pulled the water away from Key Largo.


Marco Island

(Umm…why is that guy out there with his motorcycle?)


Irma also drained Tampa Bay.



The danger isn’t over yet, even though the Hurricane has been downgraded. A CNN meteorologist tells us what to expect:

Irma is moving up through Florida Monday morning, said CNN meteorologist Taylor Ward. The storm will weaken as it travels over land. The storm’s eye will move through southern Georgia by Monday afternoon. There is the potential for hurricane-force winds of at least 74 mph in northern Florida and southern Georgia, Ward said, and tropical-storm-force winds of least 35 mph will be felt in the Atlanta metropolitan area later.
By late Monday, the storm will reach northern Alabama but the impact will be felt well in advance because of its size, Ward said. There is also the threat of tornadoes in southeast Georgia and coastal South Carolina, Ward said.
The storm is expected to move on to western Tennessee by late Tuesday, Ward said.
“While the worst is over for southern Florida, the flood and wind threat will continue for portions of northern Florida, Georgia, Alabama and Southern Carolina,” he said. (source)

    When I saw the water was drawn out of the bay by the hurricane in one video, I thought what an opportune time for a treasure hunter with a metal detector.

    Miami was not so bad..just flooding. I’m in Miami now. West side took a hit and so did central. Most of west coast power expected on Friday. Central, where I live…we have at least two more weeks no power. National Guard are handing out water and mre in highlands county.

      Oh such nice National Guard.
      Reminds me of the many invasions, bomb a country to the ground then go rebuild it, dumping tons of money into it.

      They made this hurricane, now they are handing out goodies.


      Glad to hear you are ok, Samuel.

Lockheed Martin does the modeling for the FAA.’
