"Irma Death Toll in US Rises To 11; Florida Keys Face 'Devastation'"

"A weakened Irma brought rain and wind to a wide section of the country on Tuesday after causing at least 11 deaths and leaving some 6.7 million people without power in five states.

Irma, which was downgraded to a post-tropical cyclone Tuesday morning, was bringing 'generally moderate rain' to a wide swath of the southeast and Tennessee and Ohio Valleys, according to the National Weather Service.

Irma tore a path of destruction across the Caribbean and up Florida before breaking up on Tuesday."
