Monstrous Hurricane Michael tears into Florida

11 Octobre, 2018, 11:37 | Auteur: Therese Cote

More than 40 percent of daily crude oil production and more than one-third of natural gas output was lost from offshore US Gulf of Mexico wells on Wednesday because of platform evacuations and shut-ins caused by Michael.

"This happened so quickly, we weren't exactly prepared", he said.

As the destructive forces of Hurricane Michael were set to make landfall on the Florida Panhandle Wednesday, the astronauts aboard the International Space Station were able to capture breathtaking video of the storm. "You know, that's hard", she said, choking back tears. Scientists say global warming is responsible for more intense and more frequent extreme weather, such as storms, droughts, floods and fires.

When Michael smashed into the coastline yesterday, debris was strewn across miles of Florida's coastline.

Michael, located about 20 miles (30 kilometers) southwest of Albany, Georgia and packing maximum sustained winds of 90 miles per hour (150 km/h), is forecast to become post-tropical cyclone on Friday, the Miami-based weather forecaster said.

In addition, this storm had the third-lowest central air pressure of any US landfalling hurricane on record.

Residents and tourists were told to flee low-lying areas in at least 22 counties along the shore in Florida's Panhandle and adjacent Big Bend region.

But many people living in counties farther east in North Central Florida were spared.

The head of the Federal Emergency Management Agency, Brock Long, told President Donald Trump in a briefing shortly before the eye of the storm hit that it was the "worst kind" of hurricane. Some of those areas are still working to recover from Hurricane Florence. He has covered hurricanes in the state for decades. The most likely cause for such sudden changes?

A year ago saw a string of catastrophic storms batter the western Atlantic - including Irma, Maria and Harvey, which caused a record-equaling $125 billion (USD) in damage when it flooded the Houston metropolitan area.

After the hurricane made landfall, Florida Governor Rick Scott urged those who didn't evacuate to stay in place.

In St. Marks, John Hargan and his family gathered up their pets and moved to a raised building constructed to withstand a Category 5 after water from the St. Marks River began surrounding their home. "We've been through hurricanes but never where we were completely cut off like this". Ranked as a Category 4, the disaster ruined the town's commercial industry and its status as a major port whilst claiming the lives of up to 12,000 inhabitants.

"This is a full month later than we've ever seen a hurricane with anywhere near this strength", he said. The name Fifi was removed from the rotating list of hurricane names due to high number of fatalities. The island struggled to provide effective and quick relief to its citizens and for its infrastructure.
