In just the past two hours, Hurricane Irma has pounded Miami into a flooded version of its former self.
As the storm makes its second landfall on Marco Island on the southwest Florida coast Sunday afternoon, people in Miami are still dealing with Irma’s back-end.
Winds in Miami whipped around high-rise buildings at speeds approaching 100 mph, the National Weather Service said.
Two cranes collapsed in the ocean-side city, and a 94 mph wind gust was recorded at Miami International Airport, which has turned into a lake.
The following is a collection of videos posted to Twitter in the past couple of hours which graphically illustrate the storm’s impact on Miami.
Trees are uprooted, homes are damaged, and even dogs are rescued. Watch below:
