After long days of anxious preparations and waiting, Hurricane Irma is arriving in South Florida on Sunday morning, still a dangerous Category 4 storm even though Miami-Dade and Broward counties will be spared the worst. The Florida Keys, however, will not be so lucky: Irma’s eye is expected to hit Key West before moving northwest up Florida’s Gulf Coast. Hundreds of thousands of people are already without power, and dangerous flooding and tornadoes are possible.

Stay with the Miami Herald for all the latest news on Sunday.
