Irma's projected path shifts west; Florida more firmly in crosshairs
Florida Gov. Rick Scott on Thursday urged hundreds of thousands of people to evacuate before Hurricane Irma makes potential landfall — as forecast models on Thursday predicted the storm moving further west, more directly in the state's path. "If you live in any evacuation zones and you're still at home, leave!" Scott warned Floridians at a news conference Thursday. "Do not try to ride out this storm ... we can't save you once the storm hits."
