From Meteorologist Zack Fradella:
Hurricane Irma remains a Category 4 major hurricane with winds of 130 mph as of the 11 AM advisory from the National Hurricane Center. Movement is to the north at about 9 mph which will put Irma very close to the Southwest Florida coast later this afternoon.
Currently the worst of the weather has transitioned to Southeast Florida, specifically the Miami area as winds are now gusting to hurricane force. The Lower Keys experienced wind gusts to 120 mph this morning as the storm made landfall but conditions are improving as the center lifts north.
Rapidly conditions will deteriorate along the Southwest Florida coastline from Naples up through Tampa this afternoon as the eyewall of Irma moves onshore. Multiple reports from the west side of the state are indicating a significant low tide as the winds remain offshore. That will quickly change as the center approaches the coast and the storm surge inundates the coastline. Everyone is being urged to not venture out to the beach to see the low tide as when it rises, it will do so rapidly.
