They may be without power for a few days. Hans Bolter may have been closest to the eye, but I think Tampa/St. Pete dodged the bullet. His house should be fine, structurally.
The storm has weakened tremendously. Valdosta, Georgia, which should be receiving some of the strongest winds now, is reporting winds at9 mph with gusts to 21 mph. That should increase as the day goes on, but it gives a good idea that the storm is weakening quickly.
To this point, no deaths reported in Florida. There will be significant wind damage in the Middle Keys and around the Naples area, but probably not widespread structural damage - more like roofs, signs, power lines, loose objects, and a few horizontal arms on cranes (three such in the Miami area). I don't think there has been any significant storm surge issues in major population centers, as there was after Katrina. And I don't think the rainfall totals will be anywhere close to Harvey.
To anyone affected by Irma it's a huge deal but most places weren't hard hit.
To put this into perspective, last year's Hurricane Matthew killed ten or twenty folks in Georgia and South Carolina. But few except in those areas remember that storm a year later. In the southeastern states, certain hurricanes are mentioned with a haunted look: Labor Day 1935, Camille '69, Hugo '87, Andrew '92, Katrina 2005, and a few others. Irma will not join those ranks.
