A stunning video showed powerful winds ripping off the roof of a Miami house on Sunday.
The video, posted to Twitter by local NBC reporter Josh Benson, was taken as storm surge from Hurricane Irma flooded the streets of Miami.
The massive storm made landfall in the Florida Keys on Sunday morning after battering several islands in the Caribbean earlier this week, leaving 22 dead. Parts of Florida could receive up to 25 inches of rain, and winds as powerful as 130 miles per hour were recorded in the state earlier Sunday.
Florida Gov. Rick Scott urged Miami-area residents to evacuate, and a city-wide curfew was imposed at 6 p.m. Sunday. It will be lifted at 7 a.m. Monday.
