A video posted Sunday showed skyscrapers bordering the Miami River being flooded as Hurricane Irma made landfall.

Twitter user Killarney Knight‏ posted the video, which shows area buffeted by the incoming storm surge.

Some Twitter users pointed out, however, that Knight‏’s proximity to the Miami River made the flooding seem worse than it was, and that other parts of the city were in better shape.
