Dade mayor: 'We have to thank God'

In the Florida Keys, where Irma made its first US landfall on Sunday, officials have asked residents not to return to Monroe County until further notice.

Mobile home parks are particularly vulnerable, and were subject to mandatory evacuation orders, be they inland or near water. At a North Miami home, water severely flooded a backyard.

Clouds of cigarette smoke floated in the air at Mac's Club Deuce, where Miami Beach resident Kathleen Paca, 56, was perched on a stool. The entire Florida Keys were supposed to be emptied. Because the storm is 350 to 400 miles wide, Miami residents could still face life-threatening hurricane winds and unsafe storm surge of 4 to 6 feet, forecasters warned. It doesn't look like a tree fell there.

Miami-Dade County Mayor Carlos Gimenez said Monday that overall, the county fared pretty well during Hurricane Irma.

Police will verify all school staff, CCTVs will increase: Manish Sisodia
There were no separate toilets for school bus conductors and drivers, which meant they went to the same toilet used by students. With the report advising strong action against the school, two of its officials were arrested this morning.

"We were spared the brunt of the storm", Gimenez said.

The storm went up the middle of the state, ripping off roofs, downing trees and knocking out power to more than 5 million customers before losing its punch and being downgraded to a tropical storm.

And never underestimate the malevolent temperament of hammers, ladders and other tools of the hurricane-preparation trade, which often take advantage of storm-induced weariness and discombobulation to wreak revenge upon their human masters.

At least five deaths have been reported, while up to three million people are homeless and even more are still without power. "I'm not going to get on the road with the insane people".

Crystal Palace sacks Frank de Boer after five games
Palace lost to Burnley on Sunday which made it four looses in four matches which has seen them lying 19th on the league table. The Mirror is reporting that former England national team manager, Roy Hodgson is set to take the reins of Crystal Palace .

Even in Miami Beach, where the storm's western turn lessened impacts slightly, officials are flat out banning the return of evacuees until police and public-works crews deem conditions safe. Some travel-industry observers were fretting Sunday that a slow resumption of service could start toppling dominoes at other airports like Atlanta as early as Monday.

"The bad news is that this is some big monster", President Donald Trump told reporters at the White House, saying damage from the storm would be very costly.

"If you drive to Atlanta or Tallahassee, you're risking running out of gas and being in your auto in a Category 4 hurricane", said Michel Polette, who lives in Miami Beach.

Others riding out the storm said they waited too long, and now can't leave.
