The centre of hurricane Irma has hit mainland Florida, just south of Naples, amid warnings of storm surges as high as 15 feet.

Irma made landfall on Marco Island off Florida's west coast with winds of up to 169 kilo meters per hour but has since been downgraded to a category two storm.

More than 2.5 million homes in the state are without power, and parts of the city of Miami are under water.

Three storm-related deaths have been reported in Florida.

Irma has already devastated parts of the Caribbean, killing at least 28 people.

Some 6.3 million people in Florida had been told to evacuate.
