Power outages, halted flights and empty ATMs in Florida

Florida’s governor said 25,000 power outages were reported as of Saturday morning.

Florida alone should anticipate days-long power outages, FEMA said.

Ahead of Irma’s arrival in the Sunshine State, the last flights departed Friday night from Miami International Airport and Fort Lauderdale-Hollywood International Airport. Miami’s airport officially remains open, while Fort Lauderdale’s airport is closed for Saturday and Sunday.
