Florida Gov. Rick Scott on October 7 declared a state of emergency for several areas in Florida and "also directed the Florida National Guard to activate 500 guardsmen to assist with planning and logistics, and to prepare for response in impacted areas".

The NHC said in a tweet that a "life-threatening" storm surge and flash flooding is likely in areas of the Florida Panhandle and described the storm as "dangerous".

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

For the Columbus area, the National Weather Service in Peachtree City, Ga., as of Monday evening, is forecasting the possibility of tropical storm conditions much of the day Wednesday and into the night before calming down Thursday morning, with an 80 percent chance of precipitation to include heavy rainfall and wind gusts up to 20 miles per hour.

The Gulf Coast is forecast to see tropical storm conditions Tuesday night or early Wednesday, ahead of the hurricane activity expected for Wednesday.

BP said it shut in production at four platforms and that drilling rigs are taking steps to withstand the storm.

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

Tropical storm conditions are expected across the remainder of the warning areas in Cuba and the Yucatan Peninsula later today. "It is forecast to move very quickly and there would not be the rain like we had before". He also waived tolls in a move to help coastal dwellers leave.

SOME TT nationals living in Florida are keeping a close eye on Hurricane Michael.

The U.S. military was moving its aircraft from the Panhandle on Monday.

The combination of a risky storm surge and the tide will cause normally dry areas near the coast to be flooded by rising waters moving inland from the shoreline. A hurricane watch has been posted for the northeast Gulf Coast from the Alabama/Florida border to Suwanee River, Florida, including Pensacola, Panama City and Tallahassee.

Storms can force the tide in or out, which means possible flooding, but a recent dry spell locally means the ground can withstand more rainfall, Orrock said. The risk of life-threatening storm surge, heavy rainfall, and unsafe winds is increasing for the northeastern Gulf Coast. Michael has strenghtened swiftly into a category 1 hurricane.

On the beach, expect Monday's high risk of rip currents on Atlantic beaches to continue into midweek and a raised risk for beaches on the Gulf of Mexico side starting Tuesday.

"At this time. there are no plans for (a local state of emergency) but the storm is changing and shifting, so if there is a need to do that, between now and then, then commissioners (Tuesday) morning would learn of that", Manatee County information outreach manager Nick Azzara said. Also in a hurricane watch is southwest Georgia.
