Irma: Situation as of Wednesday Sept.6

Forecast indicate there is a very high probability of Irma hitting the south of Florida, unless a drastic change of path occurs on or before friday to push it more to the east.

Florida Keys will begin experiencing the hurricane early on Sunday.

Miami-Dade County is split into evacuation zones, and both Zones A and B may begin evacuating Thursday (Sept. 7), according to Miami-Dade Mayor Carlos Gimenez. Special needs residents are to evacuate Wednesday.

Broward County, which is adjacent to the north of Miami-Dade and includes Fort Lauderdale, has issued a mandatory evacuation beginning at noon Thursday for residents living east of Federal Highway. Federal Highway, also known as U.S. Route 1, runs north-south along the coastline.

In Miami, Weston, F. Lauderdale, and other neighboring areas, evacuation zones are mostly on the coast. Only south of SW 376th St dangerous evacuation zones include regions west of US1.

The evacuation is also in effect for those in low lying areas and trailer homes.

No flights coming or going once winds reach 35 mph.
