Powerful Hurricane Michael was hours away from smashing into Florida's northwestern shore on Wednesday with a wall of water and roof-shredding winds, and the state's governor said it would be the worst hurricane to hit the region in a century.
Florida will be impacted by a catastrophic storm surge and hurricane force winds today as Hurricane Michael reaches land. "There are warnings for more than 300 miles (480km) of coastline", the National Weather Service tweeted, predicting that Michael would become a "large and risky hurricane". Evacuations spanned 22 counties from the Florida Panhandle into north central Florida.
As of late Tuesday, the storm was located about 200 miles south-southwest of Apalachicola, Fla., and 220 miles south-southwest of Panama City as it moved north at 12 mph.

"We've been through this before", she said. "But in my experience, it's always blown way out of proportion".

Forecasters said it will unleash damaging wind and rain all the way into the Carolinas, still recovering from Hurricane Florence's epic flooding. And isolated tornadoes were also possible.
