The mayor of Miami Beach has urged tourists and residents to ‘get out’ of the area as the devastating Hurricane Irma heads for Florida.
Mayor Philip Levine called Irma a ‘nuclear hurricane’ and stressed that anyone left on the beach after last night’s mandatory evacuation ‘must leave’.
It comes after Florida Governor Rick Scott ordered the emergency evacuation of Miami’s coastal zones as the monster storm approaches the United States mainland.
‘This storm will envelope us whether it is off shore or on shore. It won’t make a difference,’ Mayor Levine told CBS4.
He added: ‘I’ll do anything in my power to convince [people] this is a very serious storm. This is a nuclear hurricane. They should leave the beach, they must leave the beach.’
