Florida has just been declared a “natural disaster area” by the National Hurricane Center.
If you live in the Sunshine State, you may need to pack up and prepare for the worst.
In fact, the storm is set to become the second-strongest storm in history in the state.
Here are the things you need to know about the storm.1.
When to leave your home?
The storm has already knocked out power in some parts of the state, including Miami-Dade, Broward and Palm Beach counties.
As of Sunday afternoon, more than 3 million customers in Florida were without power, according to the Florida Power & Light company.
If power goes out, your water and sewage systems could be at risk.2.
When will Florida be declared a natural disaster area?
If the storm passes through the state on Tuesday night, Florida will become a “major disaster area,” meaning the state will be designated a state of emergency, which allows for the federal government to step in.3.
How can I get supplies?
You can always buy gas at the pump, but it will probably take you more time.
You can also try to get supplies in stores and online.
The storm has been getting worse, so if you’re going to be out of the house, you might as well get your supplies in advance.4.
Will I have to move?
It’s going to take a while for supplies to arrive in the region, and it could take up to 48 hours to get your supply to you.
There will be a lot of truck traffic in and around the region.5.
What are the evacuation routes?
You’re not going to need to leave the area immediately, but you might want to do that in case of an emergency.
If it’s going well, you could have to leave by Friday or Saturday, but that could change.
There are evacuation routes available through the Florida National Guard, which will provide support to those in need.
The Florida Department of Transportation is offering a free, one-hour road trip between Orlando and Jacksonville, and the state also has a limited-access road map for people who are stuck.6.
Where are the schools?
All public schools are closed in the Miami-Tampa area.
There’s a one-day delay in schools in the greater Tampa area.
The Miami-St. Petersburg International Airport is also closed, as are airports in Miami and Miami-Fort Lauderdale.
The airport in St. Petersburg has suspended operations.7.
What’s going on with Hurricane Irma?
Irma has passed the Florida Keys and is now moving inland, moving across the Bahamas and then into the Gulf of Mexico.
At one point, it was moving into the Florida Panhandle.
As it approaches the Gulf Coast, Irma will weaken, but will then become a hurricane and potentially bring heavy rain and strong winds to the region and potentially the United States.8.
What else is going on?
There is still a tropical storm watch for parts of Miami-Boca Raton and portions of the northern Florida Keys.
A tropical storm warning is also in effect for parts, including the Miami area.
As Irma makes its way closer to the coast, it could cause damage to shipping and cause flooding.9.
How do I stay safe?
Irwin has been strengthening and moving into Florida, so expect the state to get a bit warmer.
The Sunshine State’s climate can be dangerous for anyone who lives there, and a lot can happen on the Sunshine Coast and in other areas of the Sunshine States.
If Irma doesn’t move inland, there could be a dangerous storm surge that could affect the area.
You should stay in your homes and move into higher ground to protect yourself from flooding.10.
Where can I donate?
You don’t have to donate your time or money to help with the storm, but there are some charities that are accepting donations.

If Hurricane Irma were to hit Florida, it would be a disaster that would affect millions of people, including about 3 million people who live in Florida.
Irma has been weakening and moving inland.
Irma is expected to weaken to a tropical depression by Tuesday afternoon.
There is a hurricane watch for the Florida Straits from the Florida Strait, including all of Florida’s northern Gulf Coast and the Florida peninsula.
If the hurricane passes through, Irma could bring heavy rains, flash flooding and strong wind gusts.
Irma will be making landfall along the Florida coast around 3 p.m.
