The Miami area thankfully has Hurricane Irma in its rearview, as winds have finally started to settle across the tri-county region. Cities continue to unleash first responders while assessing damages and outages.

According to the Sun Sentinel, as of Monday morning there were over 815,000 outages in Miami-Dade (80 percent of homes), nearly 644,000 outages reported in Broward (68 percent of homes), and over 523,000 outages in Palm Beach (70 percent of homes).

FPL indicated they began restoring outages Sunday night and have unleashed “an army of nearly 17,000” employees. NBC 6 reported it “may take upwards of a week” to restore full power in Dade and Broward. You can follow FPL’s news releases here. A curfew from 7 p.m. to 7 a.m. is expected to be in place for days in Miami-Dade.

City re-entry for Miami Beach begins Tuesday at noon, and cars parked in its garages must be removed by September 18 (next Monday). As the nasty but weakened storm departs the state of Florida today, here are a batch of photos showing Hurricane Irma’s wrath.
