Irma Downgraded To Tropical Depression

Irma was one NASTY NASTY storm!!! But the good news is that Irma is weakening as it moves inland and is now a tropical depression packing winds of 35 miles per hour. The bad news, Irma is still causing plenty of problems despite losing strength and dumping rain across the South.

Charleston, South Carolina saw heavy rain and flooding yesterday. Parts of Mississippi, Georgia, Alabama, Tennessee and the Carolinas could also see up to eight more inches of rain. Irma has left at least seven people dead since making landfall in Florida Sunday morning as a Category Four hurricane. Millions of people are without power in Florida and may be for days.

As for Florida, flooding remains the biggest threat – as Jacksonville saw record flood levels yesterday as the last bands of the storm moved out of northern Florida.
