Irma made landfall in the U.S. as a Category 4 storm (wind speeds measured at 130 mph) on September 10, 2017. It first hit the Florida Keys, either damaging or destroying every house there. Moving north, Irma flooded streets and knocked down power lines. Georgia and South Carolina were also impacted by storm surge and flooding.
