"Hurricane Michael is a dangerous, catastrophic life-threatening storm," Dean said Wednesday. "The panhandle of Florida has never had a Cat 4 landfall in their history, and Michael could go down as the strongest hurricane to hit the U.S. in the month of October." The Florida Panhandle could see storm surges of up to 13 feet and flash-flooding from heavy rainfall, the NHC said. The chance of tornadoes will also increase Wednesday in parts of the Panhandle, the northern Florida Peninsula and southern Georgia.

Barrelling in with 145 mph winds and generating reports of 31-foot waves, an “extremely dangerous” Hurricane Michael was upgraded to a Category 4 storm Wednesday and continued strengthening into what could be the most powerful storm to hit the Florida Panhandle in 100 years, forecasters said.As Hurricane Michael prepares to make landfall in just a few hours, the storm is taking a hard turn to the east, so areas like Jacksonville, Saint Augustine and other areas could see some hard rain and very high winds. Hurricane Michael is slated to also affect areas as far north as the Carolinas.
13 people are already dead from this storm as it traveled up from South America, and a full Shelter-in-Place order is in effect for the entire Florida Panhandle. Please pray for any and all people in the path of this rapidly-escalating storm.
FROM FOX NEWS: Hurricane Michael was churning about 80 miles south-southwest of Panama City, Fla. and moving north at 13 mph, the National Hurricane Center said in its 9 a.m. ET advisory. The storm is expected to roar onto shore between Panama City Beach and Apalachicola between 1 to 2 p.m. ET, according to Fox News Senior Meteorologist Janice Dean.
“Hurricane Michael is a dangerous, catastrophic life-threatening storm,” Dean said Wednesday. “The panhandle of Florida has never had a Cat 4 landfall in their history, and Michael could go down as the strongest hurricane to hit the U.S. in the month of October.”
