CNN reported that the National Hurricane Center said Irma will make landfall in southern Florida as a dangerous major hurricane and has issued hurricane and storm surge warnings for South Florida including from Jupiter Inlet on the east coast of the state and southward around the Florida Peninsula to Bonita Beach on the west coast.
The warning included the Florida Keys, Lake Okeechobee, and Florida Bay.
