MIAMI — Coconut Grove, one of Miami’s oldest neighborhoods, appeared to be one of the most ravaged in the wake of Irma. Storm surges from Biscayne Bay had flooded parts of main thoroughfares of the coastal neighborhoods. The water had seeped into the lobbies of luxury condo buildings along Biscayne Boulevard.

Sailboats on Grove Key Marina were flipped. Once-idyllic parks looked like desolate war zones. Debris was everywhere. Large trees toppled over by their roots.

By Monday afternoon, the water had mostly receded, but power had yet to be restored.

Irma, the record-setting hurricane that devastated islands across the Caribbean, has been churning north through Florida — and has turned its sights on Georgia.
