The NHC said the storm has winds of 70 mph. It made landfall as a Category 3-Category 4 storm at the Florida Keys at 9 a.m. Sunday.

Irma’s storm surge inundated Jacksonville with record-setting floods, prompting the city government to issue a flash flood emergency on Monday.

“It’s bad now. It’s going to continue to get worse,” National Weather Service meteorologist Angie Enyedi said, NBC News reported.
