Hurricane Michael aftermath may cause record highs in northeast Florida

Hurricane Michael has grown into a Category 4 hurricane, with sustained winds reaching 130 miles per hour, as it barrels toward northwestern Florida, making it a much stronger storm than Hurricane Florence was when it made landfall as a Category 1 storm drenching the Carolinas last month, according to the National Hurricane Center.

"We expect conditions across the panhandle to deteriorate rapidly", Florida Governor Rick Scott said during a press conference on Wednesday morning. "Thousands of trees gave way to the tropical storm force winds".

But Michael is still boasting winds of 50 miles per hour (80 kph), according to the National Hurricane Center (NHC).

"Today is the day".

People in coastal parts of 20 Florida counties had been told to leave their homes but by Wednesday morning were told it was too late to flee.

Michael isn't alone. The National Hurricane Center says Hurricane Leslie and Tropical Storm Nadine are no threat to land over the open Atlantic Ocean, but Tropical Storm Sergio in the Pacific is blowing toward Mexico's Baja California Peninsula.

In its discussion, the center said the environment ahead of Michael was conducive to intensification. The storm's center is expected to move inland over the Florida Panhandle or Florida Big Bend area before moving northeastward across the Southeastern U.S.

The NHC warns that some regions of Florida may experience storm surges of up to 13ft (4m). Potentially catastrophic wind damage will occur along the coast, with risky winds affecting areas further north, including southern Georgia and southeast Alabama.

Regardless of this, a respectable 3,500mAh battery is included, as is stock Android 8.1 Oreo as part of the Android One program. HMD has proven itself to be a reliable option when it comes to seeding software updates, so no questions in that aspect.

A Category 4 hurricane has never made landfall in Florida's panhandle.

President Trump has approved Florida's declaration of emergency.

It was the most powerful hurricane to hit the continental U.S. in almost 50 years and at least one death was reported during its passage. "It looks like another big one".

Meanwhile, the Coast Guard said it rescued at least 27 people, mostly from homes damaged along the Florida coastline, and searched for more victims. NHC said those areas will likely experience a "life-threatening" storm surge, where 9 to 13 feet of inundation is possible in the worst areas between Tyndall Air Force Base and Keaton Beach.

In Panama City, a train was blown off its tracks, a scene reminiscent of the 1935 Labor Day hurricane that struck the Keys.

"The storm surge is absolutely deadly".

"As you go east of Panama City, that's where that wall of water on the eastern side of the eye wall is", Sen. The governor has declared a state of emergency in 35 counties and is stressing that residents should "absolutely" evacuate if ordered to.

More than 19,000 utility workers from companies in Florida and across the country have started assessing the damages.

With a number of counties ordering evacuations, Scott waived highway tolls in the northwest part of the state.

The two people killed in the storm were a man who died when a tree toppled onto his house in Florida and a girl who died when debris fell into a home in Georgia, officials and local media said.

"Where that becomes a factor is with the evacuation of some of the local populations", he said.

"If you and your family made it through the storm safely, the worst thing you could do now is act foolishly", he said.

Travis Brooks, Director of Seminole County's emergency management agency, told ABC News there was "complete and total devastation".

P.S. Hurricane Michael is an extremely unsafe storm. At a morning briefing, state officials said 400,000 in Florida remained without power.

Florida Fish and Wildlife has put 40 additional law enforcement officers on notice to deploy with a variety of special equipment, including boats that can be used for high-water rescues.

Emergency officials in SC are reporting no injuries or deaths so far as Tropical Storm Michael moves across the state.
