What to Know About Traveling to the Florida Keys After Hurricane Irma

Several major airports in Florida that halted passenger operations due to Irma began limited service on Tuesday, including Miami International, one of the busiest United States airports. John Ward, the emergency operations manager of Clay County, says crews have pulled 46 people from flooded homes by early Monday and an undetermined number are still stranded as the area's creeks and ponds are getting record flooding. She had no further details.

Irma has reached the Florida coast.

As Irma weakened into a tropical storm and finally left Florida on Monday after a run up the entire 400-mile length of the state, the full scale of its destruction was still unknown, in part because of cut-off communications and blocked roads. Rather than travelling from the Keys straight northwards to Miami, it moved west and made landfall at Marco Island.

It left more than 20 people dead across the Caribbean, and as it moved north over the Gulf of Mexico's bathtub-warm water of almost 90 degrees, regained strength. A city employee in Columbia, South Carolina, died Monday after being critically injured in a vehicle crash as he responded to a report of a downed tree, the city said.
