Charleston Backyard Submerged by Hurricane Irma

Severe flooding hit Charleston, South Carolina, on Monday, September 11, as Tropical Storm Irma travelled north.

The former hurricane brought “a life-threatening” storm surge and power outages to Florida, South Carolina and Georgia on Monday but had since weakened, according to forecasters. At least 9 people were killed in those states and in the Caribbean.
