Trump says U.S. is 'prepared' to deal with Irma

"I wasn't there for the storm, but I've been told by my people there that it re-landscaped the place". "You don't want to be in that path".

The president also spoke about the increasing threats from North Korea, pointing out that the United States was prepared to take steps to "keep the people of the world safe". He added, however: "I think the hard part is now beginning".

In Hollywood, on Florida's east coast, streets were largely deserted as winds picked up, bending palm trees and downing power lines, even though the city is more than 100 miles per hour from the centre of the path of the storm.
