Battered Florida on front pages today

September 11, 2017

Floridians emerged after a long, loud night to see what Hurricane Irma left behind. The storm, which weakened considerably compared to the worst-case scenarios, made front pages around the state.

Behind the scenes, some newsrooms here had to decide whether to stay or evacuate.

The Miami Herald brought family members into the newsroom.

And about two-thirds of Poynter staff evacuated. (So far, our building looks OK, and everyone is safe.)

On the day after Irma hit, here's a collection of fronts via Newseum.
