Good Morning, it’s Monday, 11 September 2017 and this is the morning edition of The Nightshift, the world’s overnight news feed.
Stormwatch: Hurricane Irma, now Tropical Storm Irma, has hit Florida, covering the entire state from bottom (the Florida Keys ) to top (Jacksonville) with a lethal combination of wind, storm surge and rain. Over 2.0 million people are out of power. It could be quite a while before Florida returns to “normal”. The only good news: Irma was not quite as powerful as it could have been. The storm will continue to move through the state and into the Southeastern U.S. (Georgia, South Carolina, North Carolina) before it finally, totally, dissipates.
Today is the anniversary of the 9/11 attack on the United States, which occurred 16 years ago, on 11 September 2001. It will be observed throughout the country, but especially in New York City and Washington, D.C. and never forgotten.
Sunday, 10 September 2017, was the first big Sunday of the NFL football season. The Cowboys beat the Giants, who did not have much offense without Odell Beckham (out with an injury) on the field. Houston lost to Jacksonville in Houston’s home opener. Check out the NFL Scores this Monday on Si.Com.
Rafael Nadal won the U.S. Open Men’s Singles Championship in New York, beating Kevin Anderson in straight sets, 6-3, 6-3, 6-4.
