Irma crossed into southwest Georgia on Monday afternoon, bringing its dangerous winds and rain deeper inland after beating a deadly path up Florida’s west coast. Now a tropical storm, it leaves behind dangerous floodwaters, power outages for millions of people and the debris it has made of human possessions across Florida.

The huge storm remained a Category 1 hurricane through early Monday, before finally being downgraded to a tropical storm. As of 8 p.m., Irma bears maximum sustained winds of about 45 mph, moving at 16 mph, 55 miles southeast of Columbus, Ga. The National Hurricane Center expect the storm to continue through southwestern Georgia tonight and move toward the northwest into Alabama on Tuesday.
