One person has died and three others are being treated at a hospital for carbon monoxide poisoning from an electric generator in Daytona Beach, the fourth such death as people across the state wait for power to be restored after Hurricane Irma.

Northeast Florida native Tim Tebow has started his week visiting hometown shelters after Hurricane Irma left thousands in Northeast Florida with flooded homes or without power.  

Days after Hurricane Irma battered South Florida, Rufus James walked through his Liberty City neighborhood in Miami looking for paid work to chop down trees and clean up yards.

Like many Floridians, James, 57, was going on day four with no electricity. At home, he had three grandchildren to feed. They’re eating “cornflakes and whatever we can come up with. I’m looking for some food,” he said.

Before the storm, James said he worked odd jobs — helping elderly neighbors mow their lawns or move heavy items. Post storm, no one was paying for help yet.

All of Sarasota's emergency shelters have been closed down after Hurricane Irma except one.

The county's Chief of Emergency Management Ed McCrane says as of Monday afternoon, there were about 30 residents with special needs still staying in one shelter.

Clay County has wrapped up swift water rescue efforts and consolidated the emergency operations center as the recovery from Hurricane Irma continues.
