The U.S. House of Representatives has cancelled all scheduled votes for this Monday over concerns about members who may not be able to return to D.C. on time because of Hurricane Irma.

The storm, downgraded to a Category 3 hurricane at 2 p.m. Eastern, is moving up Florida's west coast, and will impact parts of Georgia and Alabama beginning late Sunday night and into Monday morning and afternoon.

With the rescheduling, the first votes for the House will happen at 6:30 p.m. Tuesday, according to the majority leader's office.

The Senate, meanwhile, has yet to cancel a Monday vote scheduled for 5:30 in the afternoon after the upper chamber holds a remembrance for the anniversary of the Sept. 11 attacks, according to Senate Cloakroom.
