Hurricane Michael expected to rapidly intensify; Tropical Storm Watch for Mississippi
10 October, 2018, 06:37
At least 120,000 people along the Florida Panhandle were ordered to clear out Tuesday as Hurricane Michael rapidly picked up steam in the Gulf of Mexico and closed in with winds of 110 miles per hour (175 kph) and a potential storm surge of 12 feet (3.7 meters).
Florida Governor Rick Scott said Michael was expected to be "the most deadly, destructive storm to the Panhandle in decades".
The storm's rapid intensification over the past two days, despite shifting winds, "defies traditional logic", according to hurricane forecasters. "You have rain, you have wind - but storm surge, that's a lot of water that can come onshore", said David Peaton, the assistant director of emergency management in Levy County, in an interview with local station WUFT.
The heaviest rain will tend to fall in areas that were missed by Florence and focused from the Florida Panhandle to southwestern and central Georgia to part of central SC.
Wakulla County issued a dire warning, saying it won't open any of its shelters - because they're safety-rated only for storms up to Category 2 strength, WFSU reports.
As with any hurricane that makes landfall, there will be the risk of tornadoes being spawned.
People in areas that could be affected should take no chances against such a powerful surge, Scott said, adding, "No one's going to survive", such a wall of water.
Hurricane Michael, which forecasters expect to make landfall around Panama City on Wednesday, has forced mandatory evacuation orders for coastal or low-lying areas for almost a dozen counties as of Tuesday, according to the state emergency website: Bay, Citrus, Dixie, Franklin, Gulf, Jackson, Levy, Okaloosa, Taylor, Wakulla and Walton.
Michael is a Category 2 storm, with sustained wind speeds of nearly 100 miles per hour (155 km/h), according to NOAA. "There are warnings for more than 300 miles of coastline".
A hurricane warning has been issued for the Alabama-Florida border to the Suwannee River, and a hurricane watch is in effect from the Alabama-Florida border to the Mississippi-Alabama border.

"This is a life-threatening situation", the NHC said Tuesday. If the Hurricane Center's forecast track shifts further westward, that would be good news for the area, he said.

"It's closer to Africa than the Lesser Antilles right now", Bridges said. "And then you're riding it out in your vehicle instead of something else".
Michael could dump up to a foot (30 centimeters) of rain over some Panhandle communities before its remnants go back out to sea by way of the mid-Atlantic states over the next few days.
"Everybody has a plan until they get punched in the face".
Areas likely to be hardest hit include the Crestview-Fort Walton Beach area, Panama City and Florida's state capital, Tallahassee.
Needless to say, the storm will have serious consequences for Florida (and downstream states such as Georgia) during the remainder of this week.
With an officiant standing in front of them, the couple said their vows on the beach as brisk winds brushed them. More than 10,000 people were ordered out of Panama City Beach alone, effective at 6 a.m. Tuesday. Many filled sandbags and boarded up homes and lined up to buy gas and groceries before leaving town.
In Georgia, which will be hit by damaging winds and downed power lines, Gov. Nathan Deal on Tuesday declared a state of emergency for 92 of his state's counties.
After it makes landfall, the storm is predicted to pass into Georgia, where Gov. Nathan Deal on Tuesday issued a state of emergency covering 92 counties - almost the entire lower two-thirds of his state.
Neighbors in Alabama - the entire state is under an emergency declaration - also were bracing.
Another notable storm which falls just outside the cone of uncertainty for Michael is hurricane Opal from 1995, which is estimated as a $4.1 billion industry loss. But, he urged residents to stay "vigilant and ready".
