Key West city manager: A ‘significant number’ of people didn’t evacuate for Irma


Jim Scholl, the city manager of Key West, Florida, tells TODAY that many people heeded the evacuation orders, but a “significant number” of people did not leave as Hurricane Irma was nearing Florida. He says he expects the storm to intensify, but adds they’re fortunate to be on a weaker side of the eyewall.
