"Guess what? That's today", National Hurricane Center Director Ken Graham said.

As of late Tuesday, storm trackers were still seeing signs of Michael intensifying.

After ripping through Florida, FEMA warned that Hurricane Michael could cause flash flooding throughout Alabama, Georgia, and North and SC.

Florida's Panhandle, from Pensacola to Apalachicola, and its Big Bend area are the zones of greatest concern.

"I just think that people don't realize the risk of this", he said.

In addition to the powerful winds, Michael is also bringing the threat of risky storm surge that could reach up to four meters in some places. "The citizens in Georgia need to wake up and pay attention", he said. Farther inland, damaging winds, torrential rain and life-threatening flash floods are forecast for parts of Georgia and Alabama.

Hurricanes are violent storms that can bring devastation to coastal areas, threatening lives, homes and businesses.

More than 2 million Florida residents were under mandatory or voluntary evacuation orders as a hurricane warning was in effect from the Alabama state line to the Suwannee River mouth in Florida.

As outer rainbands from the storm began to lash the coast, the center said a monster storm surge of up to four meters is expected in some areas.

Hurricane Michael has been upgraded to "an extremely dangerous" Category 4 storm early Wednesday as it continues its approach toward the Florida Panhandle, forecasters said.

Governor Scott called for coastal residents to evacuate, saying: "It could be the difference between life and death".

"It's going to be disgusting", he said.

Now Hurst and so many others along the Gulf Coast are facing a Category 4 storm bearing down.

"I know people are worn out from Florence, but don't let this storm catch you with your guard down", North Carolina Gov. Roy Cooper said, adding, "A number of homes have rooftop tarps that could be damaged or blown away with this wind". "This thing happened fast", Scott said.

A red flag, warning of risky conditions, is seen as Hurricane Michael approaches Panama City Beach, Florida, U.S. October 10, 2018.

The National Hurricane Center warned that the storm could bring a devastating level of storm surge, the swell of water pushed by a system's winds.

Its strongest winds extended up to 45 miles from the center, and some parts of Florida were already feeling its impact. Their single-story home is built to withstand winds blowing up to 130 miles per hour, Williams said, but rising water is scary.

"The greatest threat that Michael will pose for (the Charlotte) area now appears to be flash flooding", said the National Weather Service.

Scott, a Republican running for the U.S. Senate in November's congressional elections, declared a state of emergency in 35 Florida counties.

When winds reach 119km/h (74mph), it is known as a hurricane - in the Atlantic and Eastern Pacific - or a typhoon in the Western Pacific.

PANAMA CITY, Fla. - Early Wednesday, Panama City Beach was desolate.
