“Leave Now,” Florida Governor Rick Scott Warns as Irma Approaches Florida

The outer bands of Hurricane Irma began to lash the Florida Keys on Saturday and already cut power to nearly 25,000 people, said Florida Gov. Rick Scott, as he warned those in evacuation areas must leave “right this minute.” He said at a news conference, “If you’ve been ordered to evacuate, you need to leave now … not tonight, not in an hour, you need to go right now.” Scott cautioned that the deadly storm, which weakened slightly Saturday morning to a Category 3 with 125-mph winds, would cause “life-threatening” storm surges as high as 12 feet.
