The eye of Hurricane Irma has hit Florida's southern islands as a category four storm, forecasters say.

The storm is lashing the low-lying Keys with winds reaching 130mph (209km/h).

Florida Governor Rick Scott said he was "very concerned" about the state's western Gulf Coast, where the storm is expected to head next.

More than 6.3 million people in Florida were told to evacuate, with warnings of a huge storm surge that would be "life-threatening" to anyone in its path.

Irma has already devastated parts of the Caribbean with at least 25 deaths.
