As Hurricane Irma swept past Miami Sunday morning, high waves crashed against South Pointe Pier. At a nearby marina, boats came free from their moorings and washed up against a boat ramp, according to reports coming out of 7News.
As the morning wore on, cameras captured streets flooding in Downtown Miami, Miami Beach and Miami Shores.
The National Weather Service issued a tornado warning for parts of Broward and Miami-Dade. A large tornado touched down in Oakland Park and moved west, across Lauderdale lakes, Davie and Plantation, at 35 mph.
Hours earlier, a possible tornado knocked trees and frightened residents near 188th Terrace and 125th Avenue, in South Miami-Dade.
“It’s crazy. Like, the hurricane hasn’t even come here yet, and there’s trees falling everywhere,” said an area resident.
In a live shot from a local news station working with Fox News, the Weather Channel truck is seen trying to drive through Miami streets — half the truck is submerged in water. See below.
