TAMPA, Fla. (AP) — The Latest on Irma (all times local):
People are being rescued from flooded homes Monday morning south of Jacksonville, Florida, as Tropical Storm Irma pounds the state with rain and wind.
John Ward, the emergency operations manager of Clay County, says crews have pulled 46 people from flooded homes by early Monday and an undetermined number are still stranded as the area’s creeks and ponds are getting record flooding.
Ward says between 400 and 500 homes received severe flood damage but there have been no serious injuries or deaths.
Irma weakened to a tropical storm Monday morning, a day after hitting the state as a powerful Category 4 hurricane.
