Florida Prepares for Hurricane Michael Landfall

'Potentially catastrophic' Hurricane Michael strengthens to Category 2, targets Florida 'We've Never Seen Anything Like It in the Panhandle': Monstrous Hurricane Michael Set to Strike Florida

The center is then expected to move inland over the Florida Panhandle or Florida Big Bend area on Wednesday, and then move northeastward across the southeastern United States Wednesday night and Thursday.

People in low-lying coastal areas are fleeing the Panhandle as part of mandatory evacuation orders.

Hurricane Michael is barreling toward the Florida Panhandle as it nears a Category 4 storm, but Central Florida is still expected to feel its impacts. It would also be the strongest storm in terms of wind speed to make landfall in the country this year.

"I've had to take antacids I'm so sick to my stomach today because of this impending catastrophe", National Hurricane Center scientist Eric Blake tweeted as the storm - drawing energy from the unusually warm, 84-degree Gulf waters - became more menacing.

The National Hurricane Center, citing Michael's unsafe trifecta of storm surge, flash flooding and winds, described the seventh hurricane of the Atlantic season as "life-threatening", and the Florida Division of Emergency Management warned on Twitter of the storm's "rapid intensification" ahead of landfall.

A major concern also is restoring electricity after what is expected to be widespread power outages.

Florence made landfall last month as a Category 1 storm, killing dozens in the Carolinas and Virginia.

He warned those in the storm's path that "alleviation [from storm surges] to property is likely not going to happen in these instances".

"A hurricane warning has been issued for portions of the Florida Gulf Coast, and everyone in these areas should prepare for life-threatening winds associated with the core of Michael".

Cyclone Titli: Eastern India battered by deadly storm
Cyclonic storm " Titli " on Thursday wreaked havoc in the states of Odisha and Andhra Pradesh killing eight people. Affected districts are Ganjam, Gajapati, Khurda, Puri, Jagatsinghpur, Kendrapada, Bhadrak and Balasore districts.


The governor activated 750 National Guardsmen for storm response on Monday, on top of the 500 activated the day before.

Winds are forecast to reach up to 110-miles-per-hour and some areas are expected to see an eight-to-twelve foot storm surge.

Storm surge, not wind, is what the region should monitor the closest.

At 5 a.m., the centre of the hurricane was bearing down on a stretch of the Florida Panhandle, still about 140 miles (225 kilometres) from Panama City and 130 miles (209 kilometres) from Apalachicola, but moving relatively fast at 13 mph (21 kph).

There will be no shelters open in Wakulla County, the sheriff's office warned on Facebook, because they are rated safe only for hurricanes with top sustained winds below 111 miles per hour.

Storm surge along the Big Bend of Florida looks like it will be particularly devastating.

Now if you're looking at the "skull" and think it looks familiar, that's because this is now the third year in a row where there's been some sort of skull-like face popping up in satellite images from a hurricane hitting the U.S. Rainfall totals around five to 10 inches with damaging winds moving inland in parts of Georgia.

A hurricane warning is in effect from the Alabama-Florida state line east to the Suwannee River.

Gov. Rick Scott warned people across northwest Florida at a news conference Tuesday morning that the "monstrous hurricane" was just hours away, bringing deadly risks from high winds, storm surge and heavy rains.
