The National Hurricane Center in Miami said Irma's powerful eye roared ashore at Marco Island just south of Naples with 115-mph winds, for a second U.S. landfall at 3:35 p.m. Sunday.
 
Category 3 storms have winds from 111 to 129 mph, but 130-mph wind gust was recently reported by the Marco Island Police Department.
 
Irma's second U.S. landfall was tied for the 21st strongest landfall in the U.S. based on central pressure. Irma's first U.S. landfall in the Florida Keys was tied for 7th.

CBN News reporter Gary Lane interviewed Operation Blessing president Bill Horan about how they're preparing to help victims of the hurricane.

Florida Power & Light says it will be weeks, not days, before electricity is fully restored because of the damage being done by Hurricane Irma.

Spokesman Rob Gould said Sunday that an estimated 3.4 million homes and businesses will lose power once the worst of Irma reaches the Florida mainland. He expects thousands of miles of poles and lines will need to be replaced, particularly on the Gulf coast.

Some residents sang "The Great I Am" as Irma approached ... [while] Florida Governor Rick Scott warned of a storm surge of up to 8 feet for the Tampa area.

"I don't see prayer as a last resort, it should always be a first resort," said Scott.
