The Week in Pictures: Sept. 8 - 15

Irma leaves trail of destruction in its wake, Cleveland celebrates record-breaking win, Soyuz space capsule blasts off, and more.

Tim Scheu plays with his dogs in an emptied Hillsborough Bay ahead of Hurricane Irma's arrival in Tampa, Florida on Sept. 10. Irma's winds and low tide pushed the water unusually far from its normal position. The water is normally about 4 to 5 feet deep and reaches a seawall.

The waters retracted because the leading wind bands of Irma whipped the coastal water more out to sea.

Pedestrians walk by a car on a flooded street as Tropical Storm Irma hits Charleston, South Carolina on Sept. 11. The former hurricane remained an immense, 415-mile wide storm as its center moved on from Florida Monday afternoon, giving its still-formidable gusts and drenching rains a far reach.

Irma sent 4 feet of ocean water into downtown Charleston, as the storm's center passed 250 miles away.

Sloane Stephens holds up the U.S. Open championship trophy as the lid falls off after she won the women's singles final on Sept. 9 in New York.

The 83rd-ranked Stephens, who beat Venus Williams in the semifinals, is only the second unseeded woman to win the tournament in the Open era, which began in 1968.
