Reporter: Hurricane Irma wind speeds like a jet engine
"It's time to bunker down." Those were the words of CNN's Derek Van Dam reporting from Miami Beach where there were sustained winds of over 70 mph Sunday morning. (If you're using our mobile app, CLICK HERE to view.)
Van Dam was reporting live, long before the worst of Irma was expected to reach the area.
"It just stings every time these gusts come through," he said as he was surrounded by snapped trees and flooded streets.
