Miami prepares for Hurricane Irma, expecting worA CBC News crew landed in Miami on Thursday morning to document preparations for Hurricane Irma, which had already raked the Caribbean, leaving thousands homeless. As the day progressed, evacuations ramped up across the city. By day's end, the largest-ever evacuation in Miami-Dade County history was underway. Here is a look at some of what we saw through the day:

Empty flights in, full flights out

Morning flights from Toronto to Miami were all but empty. On this Air Canada jet, only 17 passengers boarded — most of them Americans eager to get back to their families before the storm hits. Most Canadian flights were expected to be full on the return leg, however — even adding extra seats to their planes to help people get out safely.
