Emergency officials issue dire warning ahead of Hurricane Irma

Posted: Updated:
NBC News -

Federal emergency managers and Florida officials have issued a dire warning ahead of Hurricane Irma's landfall.

Time is running out for millions in the state to prepare and evacuate

"If you have been ordered to evacuate and you are still home, please go," Governor Rick Scott said. "Today is the day to do the right thing for your family and get inland to safety." 

Millions are in the path of Irma, a storm so massive it could swallow the entire state.

"This storm is wider than our entire state. It is expected to cause major and life threatening impacts from coast to coast," Scott warned. 

Residents are preparing as best they can. Lines stretch around home improvement stores, which are quickly running short of supplies. The same is true at gas stations and grocery stores.

For those already inside shelters, there is a growing fear.

"What's the most scary is what are we going to go back to, and are we going to be even, are we going to be able to get back to our house?" said evacuee Cherry Smart.

On it's current path, Irma is expected to cross the Keys Saturday night and make landfall near Miami Sunday morning.
