Michael's trek to Florida is affecting politics in the state.

Florida is in the direct path of Hurricane Michael, now swirling with 80mph winds off the coast of Cuba.

Texas: There will be some ESE windswell early this week, but the real Michael swell isn't expected until Wednesday.

"This storm has the potential to be a historic storm, please take heed", the sheriff's office said in the post. Fong, who lives in Miami, said he has stocked up on essentials and is keeping abreast of news on Michael.

An Air Force hurricane hunter airplane was sent into the storm to investigate, the hurricane center said.

Strong winds and heavy rainfall is now spreading across the western portion of Cuba.

Energy companies halted almost a fifth of Gulf of Mexico oil production and evacuated staff from 10 platforms on Monday as Michael was forecast to become the strongest of three named storms to affect the U.S. Gulf of Mexico this year.

Tropical storm watches are in effect from Suwanee River, Florida, to Anna Maria Island, Florida, including Tampa Bay.

A Hurricane Watch has been issued for the Panhandle and Big Bend areas while coastal Manatee County and area waters are under a Tropical Storm Watch, meaning tropical storm conditions are possible within 48 hours.

Michael becomes a hurricane as it heads to U.S.
The storm is expected to dump 4 to 8 inches of rain on Cuba, with some areas of the island nation seeing up to a foot of water. The National Hurricane Center is tracking Hurricane Michael , which strengthened from a tropical storm on Monday.


Rainfall is also set to be a serious danger over the coming days, as Cuba has already received four to eight inches, and most of Florida and Carolina is in for at least four to eight inches. Severe storms and possible tornadoes will be possible over parts of the state along Michael's path.

A Storm Surge Watch means there is a possibility of life-threatening inundation, from rising water moving inland from the coastline, in the indicated locations during the next 48 hours.

Michael is now about 50 miles south of the western tip of Cuba and is expected to make landfall along the Florida panhandle this week.

A storm surge watch has been hoisted from Navarre, Florida, to Anna Maria Island, Florida, including Tampa Bay.

As of the 5 p.m. advisory, Michael is now a Category 1 hurricane with sustained winds of 80 miles per hour.

The stormy weather in and around New England should last no longer than two days, and wind speeds should not reach much higher than average, Correia said.

Michael is forecasted to continue to move northward near the western tip of Cuba this afternoon and into the southeastern Gulf of Mexico by tonight.

Worry over Hurricane Michael has also postponed the Marjory Stoneman Douglas Public Safety Commission's highly anticipated hearings into the high school massacre scheduled for this week, as many of those on the commission live in the panhandle.

Oil companies, including BP, Equinor, Exxon Mobil Corp and BHP Billiton, on Monday started evacuating personnel from oil and gas production platforms as Hurricane Michael began its trek up the eastern U.S. Gulf of Mexico.
