Hurricane Irma weakened to a still-dangerous tropical storm Monday as it pushed inland, triggering record flooding in Florida’s northeastern corner, while rescuers in its soggy, wind-battered wake mobilized to reach victims and learn the full extent of the damage.

In the Caribbean, the powerful storm has ripped roofs off houses, collapsed buildings and flooded hundreds of miles of coastline. As of Monday, Hurricane Irma has killed at least 33 people in the Caribbean. No deaths have been reported in Florida.
