  • Hurricane Michael Makes Landfall as a Category 4 Storm

The speed of the storm barreling toward the Florida Panhandle - Michael was moving north-northwest at 12 miles per hour (19 kph) - was among the hazards worrying forecasters at the National Hurricane Center on Tuesday morning.

According to Weather Underground, if Michael makes landfall with winds of at least 130 miles per hour, which is minimal Category 4 strength, it would be the strongest hurricane ever in the Florida Panhandle in records going back to 1851.

The last major hurricane to hit the Panhandle was Hurricane Dennis in 2005, according to hurricane center data.

"Hurricane Michael is a monstrous storm", said Florida Gov. Rick Scott, at a Tuesday news conference, adding that it could bring "total devastation to parts of our state, especially in the Panhandle".

The Florida Disaster website on October 9 said that parts or all of Bay County, Citrus County, Franklin County, Dixie County, Gulf County, Jackson County, Levy County, Okaloosa County, Taylor County, Wakulla County, and Walton County have been issued mandatory evacuation orders.

Then, as the storm crosses over the Southeast U.S. on Wednesday evening and Thursday, it will weaken. "We want to get them out of the way".

"Impacts from Hurricane Michael along the Florida Panhandle will include a risky storm surge, flooding rainfall and damaging winds".

Forecasters said parts of Florida's marshy, lightly populated Big Bend area could see up to 3.7 metres of storm surge. "This might be really bad and serious".

"We will probably evacuate to like Alabama or wherever we can go to be safe", she said. "But in my experience, it's always blown way out of proportion". Forecasters said tornadoes could be spun off by the storm, and 3 to 6 inches of rain could cause flash floods as it barrels over a corner of the country still recovering from Hurricane Florence.

Michael also wreaked havoc in the Caribbean.

In Cuba, it dropped more than 10 inches (27 centimeters) of rain in places, flooding fields, damaging roads, knocking out power and destroying some homes in the western province of Pinar del Rio.

Wednesday Governor Cooper declared a "State of Emergency" and announced he has activate the National Guard.

FEMA is already on the ground in Florida; other federal agencies are also preparing to assist people in the storm's path.

"If you don't follow warnings from officials this storm could kill you", said Scott, a Republican running for the U.S. Senate in November's congressional elections.
