Hurricane Irma’s devastating winds reached speeds in excess of 110 mph pounding the Keys with heavy winds, waves, and floodwaters

KEY WEST, Fla. (INTELLIHUB) — A massive storm surge and Hurricane Irma’s eye wall battered the city and adjacent Keys Sunday morning as wind gusts topped 110 mph.

Most of the city is currently flooded and power in all of the Keys has been knocked out.

Massive ocean waves could be seen crashing over beach homes as the storm continued to surge moving north toward mainland Florida’s west coast.

Severe winds battered anything out in the open.

Ocean water flowed over the top of local docks and boats were rocking violently in the winds.

Flooding… the wind…

One local couldn’t resist a selfie.

At least that damn helicopter is not currently spraying for mosquitoes.
