There were moments of glory for Gulf Coast surfers, however, as Florida Panhandlers like Sterling Spencer were able to squeeze in sessions at novelty spots before the storm became an imminent threat. "From satellite and radar monitoring, to computer models of track and intensity, and to dissemination of warnings by the NWS, private forecasters, the media, and local and national emergency managers, many lives were saved".

"We were pleased that carriers had pre-positioned equipment and were in the process deploying cells on wheels (COWs) and cells on light trucks (COLTs) in order to get wireless service up and running in many locations", Pai said in a statement. "This hurricane was an absolute monster".

So far, at least two deaths have been attributed to the storm, but vast swaths of property were levelled.

More than 375 000 people up and down the Gulf Coast were ordered or urged to clear out as Michael closed in.

Conditions remain precarious in hard hit areas, especially Mexico Beach, Florida, which Michael left in ruins.

So far six people have been reported killed as Michael, downgraded to a tropical storm, raced across the Carolinas toward Virginia, a day after hitting the Florida panhandle Wednesday morning as a Category 4 hurricane with wind speeds of up to 155 miles per hour. All three were Category 5 hurricanes.

Hurricane Michael's trail of devastation now stretches from the Florida Panhandle, where it wiped out one coastal city and left others swimming in debris, to the Carolinas, where Michael weakened to tropical storm status but still triggered flash floods that turned roads into rivers.

Governor Scott said the US Coast Guard carried out 10 missions overnight, saving at least 27 people.

Storm surge warnings were discontinued for the Gulf Coast of Florida and the Georgia coast. "The good thing is you know right away you're being exposed to it".

Less than 12 hours after the historic Hurricane Michael ripped a path through Bay County, residents began to emerge, inspect the damage and, in many cases, tally their losses. Some hospitals and other medical facilities were damaged, but he said hospitals would only be evacuated in a worse-case scenario.

Hurricane Michael came as a surprise to some.

Craig Fugate, former director of the Federal Emergency Management Agency and a former emergency management chief for the state of Florida, said "this is what we expect with storm surge and high wind events".

Tornadoes, unsafe winds and more flooding are possible in numerous same areas still recovering from Hurricane Florence.

Authorities said the full extent of devastation would not be known until after daybreak in Florida on Thursday. He imposed a curfew and asked for 50 members of the National Guard for protection. A year ago saw a slew of catastrophic storms batter the western Atlantic, including Irma, Maria and Harvey, which caused at least $125 billion (€108.2 billion) in damage when it flooded the Houston metropolitan area.

As Michael moves on to the Carolinas, there are serious concerns about deadly tornados and more flooding following Hurricane Florence.

An estimated 288,000 homes and businesses were without power in Florida.

Power lines were knocked down and heavy rains and fierce winds blanketed the area.
