Irma weakens but continues to batter Florida

Hurricane Irma, which has toppled cranes, swallowed streets and left millions without power, was starting to weaken on Monday while still pummeling parts of Florida on its destructive march north.
Irma was downgraded to a Category 1 hurricane early Monday and forecasters expect it would become a tropical storm later in the morning, but warnings of hazardous storm surges persisted in several areas even after the worst of Irma's ferocity had passed.(AFP)
