MIAMI -- Miami, as we reported yesterday, has ordered the largest ever evacuation in the county's history. More than 650,000 people are racing against time to find their way out of Florida before the expected deadly hurricane smashes through Miami. Florida Gov. Rick Scott was on television Thursday urging residents to comply with all orders, even, going as far as to say "If you haven't left yet, get out now".
The National Weather Service says that it is uncertain where Irma will head, but, "we cannot allow an entire state or city to sit at a standstill when all it will take is one wrong turn by this hurricane and Miami may never be the same again".
South Carolina has confirmed that all coastal cities in the area have been ordered to evacuate immediately.
