Now located about 50 miles south of the western tip of Cuba and 140 miles east-northeast of Cozumel, Mexico, Hurricane Michael is moving north near 7 miles per hour, according to the National Hurricane Center's (NHC) latest advisory. Now-Tropical Storm Michael now sits off the coast of the Yucatan Peninsula. The fix bill came in at more than $60 billion, ranking Irma among the most costly storms in USA history. Monday will bring sustained east southeast winds at 10-20 miles per hour, with occasional higher gusts.

FEMA administrator Brock Long said the agency was prepared for the storm in all the states likely to feel Michael's impact.

Michael is the 13th named storm of the 2018 hurricane season, according to hurricane center spokesman Dennis Feltgen.

- Michael is now a Category 1 hurricane and is expected to continue to strengthen, forecasted to become a major hurricane sometime on Tuesday. Michael's center will move over the Yucatan Channel on Monday and then across the eastern Gulf of Mexico late Monday through Tuesday night, and approach the northeastern Gulf coast on Wednesday. As of Monday morning, Michael was moving north at 7mph with maximum winds near hurricane strength.

The Mobile office of the National Weather Service warns a high risk of rip currents will start Monday morning and extend through Wednesday.

Unlike Hurricane Florence, Tropical Storm Michael, now located west of Cuba and packing 70 miles per hour winds, is a fast-moving storm.

"This storm will be life-threatening and extremely risky", Scott said in a briefing Sunday.

Scott declared a state of emergency for 35 counties, and activated 2,500 National Guard troops and made more than 300 state troopers available for deployment.

For storm information specific to your area, please monitor products issued by your national meteorological service. The areas from Chassahowitzka to Anna Maria Island and between the Alabama-Florida border and the Okaloosa-Walton county line could see 2 to 4 feet of storm surge.

Once Michael passes Cuba the intensification should become clearer and there should be more certainty in the landfall forecasts once the storm moves clear of interaction with the mountainous region of west Cuba and gains more structure as it moves over the warm Gulf waters.

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

By declaring this state of emergency, Gov. Scott is ensuring that state and local government has ample time, resources and flexibility to get prepared for this storm.

Since Michael will be moving so fast there is a chance for tropical storm winds here in the Carolinas gusting over 35 miles per hour.
