Irma, now a Category 3 hurricane, moves towards Naples

Washington: Soon after Florida faced the wrath of Hurricane Irma on Sunday, Naples and Marco Island are said to endure some of the strongest winds in the next few hours, the National Hurricane Center said.

Hurricane Irma snapped trees like matchsticks and turned Miami streets into rivers. The now Category 3 hurricane would bring nearly 200 km per hour winds to the southwest Florida coast, CNN reported.

“The threat of catastrophic storm surge flooding is highest along the southwest coast of Florida, where 10 to 15 feet of inundation above ground level is expected. This is a life-threatening situation,” the hurricane center said.

Gusts topping 90 mph whipped Miami on Sunday, knocking out power to more than 750,000 customers in the Miami-Dade area.

Flying objects such as coconuts turned into dangerous projectiles. At least one construction crane snapped, swinging vigorously over downtown Miami.
