Four people were killed and 1.3 million customers were left without power. The hurricane flooded streets, darkened homes and felled trees with wind gusts reaching 92 mph. early Friday.
Weather officials said flooding was the main concern as the storm dropped up to 15 inches on parts of Miami-Dade County. Katrina's plodding pace meant that strong wind and heavy rain would continue to plague throughout the day, according to the AP.
