Parts of Florida remain at risk due to potentially life-threatening storm surges and flooding. Miami was hit head-on by Hurricane Irma, which has now been downgraded to a tropical storm on Monday. Gushing floodwaters left millions without water or power.
Five deaths have been reported in Florida in connection with Irma thus far, and at least 2 million people are without power. Two of the deaths include a Florida sheriff’s deputy and corrections officer whom were both killed after crashing head-on Sunday morning during Hurricane Irma in Hardee County, the Miami Herald reported.
ABC reported “one person was found dead in a home in Shark Key on Sunday.” In addition the station reported two deaths in Monroe County, where the Florida Keys are located.
