Is Hurricane Irma Over? Tropical Depression Brings Rain From Tennessee To Carolinas

Florida Hospital officials had chose to keep one outpatient pharmacy open during the hurricane because they knew the facility had generator power and predicted that many other pharmacies would be closed. The number of people without power has dropped, but utility officials warned it could take 10 days or more for power to be fully restored. "There is nothing there can be done more than what I think we're doing and definitely what the power companies are doing", Dinneen said. County officials announced that one of three shuttered hospitals on the island chain was reopening.

Just under half the state is still without power as various crews work to clear roadways, restore power and begin recovery efforts. "I know for our entire state, especially the Keys, it's going to be a long road". We just experienced a power outage at our command center.

By Wednesday afternoon, state emergency management officials estimate that one third — or 6.4 million — residents remained without power in the Sunshine state.

If you are a Georgia Power customer, you can check on your outage or report an outage through their outage map on their website.

The state's gas supplies were severely disrupted before and during the storm as ports were closed, cutting Florida off from waterborne deliveries the state relies on. The utility serves 1.8 million customers in the state, from the Florida panhandle south to the central part of the state.

On Monday night, Irma was downgraded from a tropical storm to a tropical depression as the storm lumbered 95 miles south-southwest of Atlanta, Georgia. "That tree has been there for 300 years", he said, still in disbelief over the strength of the 200 km/h wind brought by Hurricane Irma.

Even with Irma's weakening, the tropical depression is still expected to bring heavy rainfall across a widespread area, as it flooded parts of coastal Georgia and SC, including Savannah and Charleston, on Monday. No longer a tropical storm, but still a large low-pressure weather system, Irma was still spreading heavy rain Tuesday over parts of North Carolina, South Carolina, Georgia, Alabama, Mississippi, Tennessee and Kentucky.
