Hurricane Irma arrived in Orlando, Florida and left behind deaths and a trail of damage.

“At least two people were killed during the storm in Orange County,” the Orlando Sentinel newspaper reported. “About 900,000 homes and businesses were still without power Monday night in five Central Florida counties, and residents came outside after hours indoors to find downed trees blocking streets and damaging homes and cars.”

More than 200 people were evacuated from the Orlo Vista neighborhood after it flooded, the newspaper reported.

Here are some of the videos and photos that have been posted of the storm’s Orlando damage aftermath:
