Hurricane Idalia is nearing landfall in Florida, with likely winds of 125mph (201kmph) and potentially life-threatening conditions.
Florida Governor Ron DeSantis said storm surges are expected in some areas as fierce winds push seawater inland.
Some 30,000 personnel are ready to help restore power in the wake of the storm, Mr DeSantis said, as he warned local residents to be careful of downed power lines.
