- Strong winds and flash flooding are still a threat as Irma spins into north Florida and toward Georgia over the next 24 hours.

Jacksonville may have been spared the most ferocious winds of Tropical Storm Irma, but the torrential rains and storm surge have swelled the St. Johns River to historically high levels and inundated low-lying areas of the city.

And more than 120 homes were being evacuated early Monday in Orange County, just outside the city of Orlando, as floodwaters started to pour in.

The U.S. death toll for Irma has increased to 11 people after three deaths were reported in Georgia and one in SC.

Authorities sent an aircraft carrier and other Navy ships to help with search-and-rescue operations in Florida on Monday as a flyover of the hurricane-battered Keys yielded what the governor said were scenes of devastation.

Officials still warn people to stay off the streets, even as the storm winds die down.

Irma, which hit Florida as a category four hurricane yesterday, has now been downgraded to a tropical storm.

- In Venice, Florida, the water plant was shut down after it was damaged by the storm. "On the forecast track, the center of Irma will move near the northwestern coast of the Florida Peninsula this morning, cross the eastern Florida Panhandle into southern Georgia this afternoon, and move through southwestern Georgia and eastern Alabama tonight and Tuesday". Later on, there would not be much to see as the surging rains and floods carry on into the evening.

In Miami-Dade County, where roads flooded and debris flew, around three-quarters of residents (820,000 out of 1.1 million) are without power as of Monday.

Cooper said workers are working to clear roads, including a rock slide on USA 221.

"The storm related to Irma has been moving slower than expected, but is entering the Columbus area now".

Officials say Irma's center will move over the western Florida peninsula Monday morning, and further into the southeast USA later Monday evening.

And in Alabama, some city school districts including Birmingham, Huntsville and Auburn planned to close Monday and in some cases Tuesday.
