Hurricane Michael Pounds Panama City with 150 MPH Winds

"You are not going to survive it. It´s deadly".
It is rare for a storm to be at Category 5 strength as it makes landfall in the U.S. The last one was Hurricane Andrew in South Florida in August 1992. In Panacea, the water was already rapidly rising. A National Ocean Service water level station at Apalachicola recently reported almost 6.5 feet of inundation above ground level.
About 3.7 million people are under hurricane warnings in Florida's Panhandle and Big Bend regions, along with parts of southeastern Alabama and southern Georgia. By early Friday morning, it will bring Tropical Storm force winds to Virginia and possibly the Washington D.C. area before heading back out to sea.
Those fleeing the wrath of Hurricane Michael, which has forced mandatory evacuations in some areas along the Gulf Coast where it will arrive Wednesday afternoon, will be able to seek temporary shelter in Columbus.
Because of the warmer water, computer simulations predict Michael's central pressure will plunge just before making landfall, which is a sign of intensification, said Weather Underground's Jeff Masters.
Water levels continue to rise quickly along the coast of the Panhandle. Cloud water releases a burst of heat, and hurricanes love heat.
At 5 a.m., the center of the hurricane was bearing down on a stretch of the Florida Panhandle, still about 140 miles (225 kilometers) from Panama City and 130 miles (209 kilometers) from Apalachicola, but moving relatively fast at 13 mph (21 kph). It was the most powerful hurricane to hit the continental U.S.in almost 50 years.
Waves propagating outward from hurricane Michael as well as increasingly onshore winds will cause our tides to run 2 or 3 feet above normal. A National Ocean Service water level station at Apalachicola recently reported almost 5.5 feet of inundation above ground level.
This map shows the probable path of Hurricane Michael which made landfall Wednesday. The city could face hurricane-force winds of up to 100 miles per hour - enough to knock down a lot of trees and power lines, Accuweather meteorologist Brett Rathbun warned.
Michael could spawn tornadoes from Florida to SC, the National Hurricane Center said.
Michael, which had caught many by surprise with its rapid intensification as it churned north over the Gulf of Mexico, was the most powerful storm ever recorded to hit the Panhandle, and it strengthened even as it approached land. According to the National Hurricane Center, "most of the area will be uninhabitable for weeks or months".
"Panama City, I don't know if there will be much left".
That's according to measurements of the storm's central pressure, which is a key indicator of the intensity of a storm. A storm with that power hasn't struck the Florida Panhandle since Hurricane Dennis in 2005. This risk will spread northward into parts of Georgia and southern SC this afternoon and tonight.
The storm was expected to begin lashing the coast with tropical-storm force as soon as Tuesday night. Storm surge, with forecasts of up to 14 feet in some areas, remained a major concern.
Michael will keep plowing through the Southeast as a hurricane, with winds topping 73 miles per hour as it crosses into Georgia. The heavy rains could cause flash floods, the NHC said, and spawn tornados in northwestern Florida.
