Massachusetts is pitching in to help bring relief to the millions of Floridians enduring the punches of Hurricane Irma, which is now a tropical storm. Nearly six million people there are without power.

Chris Bessy, spokesman for the Massachusetts Emergency Management Agency, says they've deployed two teams to Florida. A three-person team will work out of one of Florida's emergency operation centers, and another team of nine nurses from Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center will provide medical assistance at storm shelters. Two additional teams, a group of first responders and a 19-person press support group are also heading down to help relief efforts.
