Transcript for Florida coast feels impact of Hurricane Irma
Thank you very much. Across town to Amy robach. Also in Miami. Tornado warnings. Yes, it has been a very serious and dangerous situation here in downtown Miami since the moment we woke up around 4:00 this morning. We heard the howling winds. Now we're seeinging the wind speeds increase. Hurricane force is 74. We're just about there. We're 100 miles away from the eye of the storm. We're really feeling the brunt of Irma right now. Can you hear the wind and see what is happening to the trees? They're breaking off. Flying across the streets. We have street signs flying. Debris flying. It is dangerous out there. I have seen cement blocks movinging. The winds are strong and fierce. We're on a balcony six floors up. Concrete above and beside me. We're in a good position to show you all of this. It is remarkable to see. We know according to WPLG, our sister station, nearly 500,000 people in miami-dade koutty without power. The streets are empty. Miami did evacuate. Yes. Most people evacuated. There were evacuation Zones that kept expanding. We had to move our toe tells twice because they kept evacuating people. We have about a three-foot storm surge. I can see the white caps on biscayne bay. There's concern in a couple of hours we'll have more flooding in the streets. We're up above ground right now. We already have some flooding going on in some asphalt areas. When the winds start whipping, it creates waives. Most people are gone. I have seen a few people come out and take a look. Vs. Really rough on street level. No one should be down there. Thank you, Amy. As thetorm moves, so did world
