MIAMI Hydro Flask Coffee 12 Oz Coffee Lava Red UK Sale , United States, Sept.12 (Xinhua) -- "We felt like a big bomb on top of the roof," Hector, a homeowner in South Miami's Coconut Grove, told Xinhua Monday, as he recollected the scene from Sunday's storm.

"We were inside the house Hydro Flask Coffee 12 Oz Coffee Graphite Grey UK Sale , in another room. We only realized after a while that it was a tree," he said, pointing to a section of heavy log that smashed onto the roof of his house.

"Actually that's an oak tree, and oak trees are supposed to be very hard. That tree has been there for 300 years," he said, still in disbelief over the strength of the 200 kmh wind brought by Hurricane Irma.

Coconut Grove was one of the places around Miami which took the worst hit by Hurricane Irma. At a nearby marina Hydro Flask Coffee 12 Oz Coffee Flamingo Pink UK Sale , boats were stacked on top of each other by the time residents returned.

Further north in downtown Miami, three crane towers were completely destroyed. In Brickell, water as deep as three feet flooded streets and homes.

Despite the heavy property losses, the hurricane has taken a less toll on the resident's mood.

By noon, Diane Thorne, a resident of Miami Beach for 24 years Hydro Flask Coffee 16 Oz Coffee Blueberry UK Sale , was already taking her two dogs to the beach for a walk.

Thorne said Hurricane Irma was the worst storm she had experienced since moving here from Australia. "This is definitely the worst one, I've never evacuated for any other storm," she said.

But she came back to her home near the beach just one day after the storm has passed, and was ready to continue with her life, even if it meant she had to climb the stairs to her 9th floor home for the time being.

As the day wore on, fallen trees and branches started to disappear from the streets Hydro Flask Coffee 20 Oz Coffee Cobalt Blue UK Sale , and signal lights came back to work, replacing temporary traffic wardens that kept order at intersections.

In the famous neighborhood of Little Havana, convenience shops and bakeries reopened their boarded up windows and doors, drawing lines of hungry residents who longed for fresh food.

By late afternoon, a few gas stations were open for business, putting up price signs and striping the plastic cover that protected the pumps during the storm Hydro Flask Coffee 20 Oz Coffee Black UK Sale , and supermarkets were once again filled with customers.

As night falls, the remnant effects of the hurricane can still be felt. At around 7:00 p.m. local time (2300 GMT), police officers told businesses to close down and observe curfew that the city authorities have imposed before the hurricane hit. And for millions of homes, including Hector's, it will take days before electricity can be restored.

According to media reports, more than 7.7 million homes and businesses lost power due to Hurricane Irma Hydro Flask Hydration 18 Oz Standard Mouth Lemon Yellow UK Sale , 6.7 million of which are in the state of Florida. Four in five homes in the Miami-Dade County lost power at some point during the storm.

But the loss of power was only part of the picture. Worse pains to recover from were the loss of 10 lives in the United States that were caused by Hurricane Irma.

Most of the deaths were in regions that had less time to prepare for the storm due to its last-minute turn from eastern Florida to the western coast.

One person was killed in the southwestern county of Monroe. Two people in the western Hardee county were killed after their cars crashed in the rain. Another person in the central city of Orlando was killed after being electrocuted by a downed wire.

Additional three people died in the state of Georgia.

Compared with the unfortunate, the some 6.5 million evacuated Floridians who will start returning to their homes after roads are cleared and flights resumed can count themselves fortunate.

"We are safe," Hector said as he stood before his damaged home, "That's the most important thing."

The boss of Nissan wants to put self-driving cars on Japan's roads next year Hydro Flask Hydration 21 Oz Standard Mouth Cobalt Blue UK Sale , and says they will be able to navigate busy urban environments on their own by 2020.

Carlos Ghosn, chief executive, said formidable technological and legal challenges remain but that the direction of travel was plain.

""There will be a Nissan product in Japan, which will carry autonomous drive,"" he told reporters on Thursday at the New York International Auto Show. ""Obviously when you have this kind of technology, you want also the Japanese market to enjoy it as soon as possible.""

A five-year tie up with NASA on the technology would see the initial roll out by December 2016 Hydro Flask Hydration 21 Oz Standard Mouth Black UK Sale , with cars that can drive on highways without anyone at the wheel.

In 2018, models should have the ability to avoid hazards and to change lanes, and by 2020, vehicles should be able to autonomously manoeuver through crowded city roads.

""It's going to happen step by step, because we need to make sure that the regulators in the different countries feel comfortable,"" Ghosn said Hydro Flask Hydration 24 Oz Standard Mouth White UK Sale , according to Kyodo News.

""To persuade the regulators that you can take your hands off the wheel or your eyes from the road is going to take a lot of demonstration.""

Nissan, Japan's second biggest automaker, is also looking at working with domestic rivals Toyota and Honda on the technology.

Reports in February said the three are planning to team up with electronics giants and the government in a bid to propel the country into the front ranks of self-driving cars.

The move is part of a government initiative to support domestic industries as competition in the field intensifies globally, with Google (Xetra: A0B7FY - news) testing its own car and Apple (Nas.
