Residents in the Us state of Florida are bracing themselves for the arrival of hurricane Irma. People need shelters to look and the ways to avoid, according to the gourverneur Rick Scott.

It is according to Scott now too late to drive away from dangerous zones. In total, more than six million people called to their house to leave, a quarter of the total population.

The call was primarily intended for people living in poorly built houses to live in. It comes to the largest evacuation in the history of the region, said mayor Carlos Giménez of Miami-Dade.

The American authorities have numerous noodopvangplaatsen opened. Also they provide free bus transportation to the centers. The airport of the city is still open, but many flights are cancelled.

In Florida prepare citizens for the worst, and millions of people are moving away. It is expected that the damage can be up to 135 billion or even 200 billion dollars.
