(CNN) -- Irma weakened to a Category 1 storm early Monday as it moved over the western Florida peninsula, the National Hurricane Center said

By 2 a.m. Monday, Irma had sustained winds of 85 mph.

"Strong winds and flash flooding still a major risk with the storm as it moves into North Florida and toward Georgia over the next 24 hours," the center said.
