After blasting the northern Caribbean, deadly Hurricane Irma has turned toward the United States. While the strength of the storm has wavered, destructive winds, flooding rain and inundating seas will continue to hit Florida into Monday, a report said.

"There will be massive damage in Florida. [It will be] the worst single hurricane to hit Florida since Hurricane Andrew in 1992," Myers said.

As Hurricane Irma's devastating blow to Florida's southernmost point worsened Sunday morning, officials warned anyone who stayed that they were on their own until the storm's impacts waned.

The current track of Irma will bring severe and life-threatening impacts to all of the Florida Keys and a large portion of the Florida Peninsula, including Key West, Key Largo, Tampa, Fort Myers, Naples, Sarasota and Miami.

"The first thing I ask everybody to do is pray for us," Florida Gov. Rick Scott told ABC News Sunday morning.

Sloane Stephens, the Winner of the 2017 US Open is Trending in USA




In a tour de force performance, Sloane Stephens overwhelmed fellow American and No.15 seed Madison Keys, 6-3, 6-0, to win her first Grand Slam title at the 2017 US Open, on Saturday afternoon in Arthur Ashe Stadium.

No man or woman not named Williams had won a Grand Slam singles title in 14 years until Stephens beats Keys 6-3, 6-0 on Saturday evening. It's a tribute to how much the game has grown globally, and also to the lockdown imposed by Venus and Serena Williams.

The most alarming aspects of the drought for the U.S. were becoming more concerning after Serena left the game early this year and Venus turned 37 this summer. Venus, of course, made two major finals and the semis here, but the rains finally came in the form of Stephens, Keys and another US Open finalist, CoCo Vandeweghe.

Stephens first came close to winning a grand slam title four-and-a-half years ago in Australia. She beat Serena Williams in the quarter-finals before losing to Victoria Azarenka. Afterwards, Stephens went public about what she perceived as a snub by Williams, who had been described as her mentor.
