Hurricane Irma leaves horrific destruction in Florida Keys

Posted: Updated:

(NBC News) The first images from the Florida Keys in the wake of Hurricane Irma reveal horrific damage.

The islands and most everything on them look like they were thrown from a blender, shredded and scattered for miles.

"This is the worst storm we've every been through," says Keys resident Andy Fortin. "I've never left before. I might consider leaving after this one." 

FEMA says 90 percent of the homes in the Keys were either damaged or destroyed, and the impact of the storm stretches across the entire state, from the barrier islands through the Jacksonville area, where flooding will continue to be an issue for days.

Millions across the strike zone are still without power, and in the hardest hit areas it could be ten days or more before it's restored.
