Hurricane Watch Florida Panhandle - near record high temps here

Tracking Michael What You Need to Know

A storm undergoes rapid intensification when its maximum sustained winds increase at least 35 mph in 24 hours or less, according to the National Hurricane Center. The D.C. area should get a total of maybe an inch, with perhaps two inches falling in Southern Maryland and the Eastern Shore. "We can rebuild your home, but we cannot rebuild your life". "That's the criticality of following directions".

Anticipated landfall is expected Wednesday on the northeast Gulf Coast, where authorities warned of a potentially devastating strike. Following Hurricane Irma past year, 14 people died when a South Florida nursing home lost power and air conditioning.

Of the elderly and infirm patients, Scott had a blunt message for their caregivers: "If you're responsible for a patient, you're responsible for the patient".

"You can not hide from storm surge, so. get out if an evacuation is ordered", he said. It's as simple as that.

Other locations in the state are under voluntary evacuation. Storm surge rises rapidly Wednesday morning and afternoon. "It will be life-threatening and extremely risky".

The clockwise churn of an area of high pressure centered over DE is what's keeping Michael on a more northerly path toward the Panhandle and away from South Florida, said AccuWeather senior hurricane expert Dan Kottlowski.

"On the state level, we are prepared", said Ivey.

Volusia County Beach Safety secured non-essential equipment off of the beach due to the predicted wind and swell, said spokeswoman Captain Tamara Malphurs.

Forecasters expect Hurricane Michael to grow stronger still as it crosses the Gulf of Mexico on its way to Florida's Panhandle.

He said, "There's nothing between us and this storm but warm water and I think that's what terrifies us about the potential impacts".

Escambia County Sheriff David Morgan bluntly advised residents choosing to ride it out that first-responders won't be able to reach them while Michael smashes into the coast.

The hurricane was forecast to deliver as much as 1 foot (30 cm) of rain in parts of Florida, Georgia and SC.

The hurricane's effects will be felt far from its eye.

Since the reconstruction, three semi-trailers had reportedly run through the same stop sign that the limo went through, she said. Jackson was a special education teacher in Amsterdam, said Santabarbara, who represents the part of NY where the crash happened.

The Weather Service has already issued a tropical storm warning for the coast along Georgia and SC nearly as far north as Georgetown.

Hurricane Michael is gaining strength as it lashes Cuba's western tip and lumbers northward toward the U.S.

The Category 1 hurricane now has maximum sustained winds of 90 miles per hour, according to the National Hurricane Center.

In North Carolina, still reeling from the destruction of Hurricane Florence last month, Gov. Roy Cooper warned that Michael could bring moderate storm surge, downed trees and power outages to his sodden state. Hurricane-force winds extend outward up to 35 miles (56 kilometers) from the storm's center and tropical-storm-force winds extend outward up to 175 miles (282 kilometers).

The cone of probability for Hurricane Michael as of 1 a.m. EDT on October 9, 2018.

North Carolina's governor says he's afraid Hurricane Michael could slow the recovery for homeowners dealing with wind or flooding from Hurricane Florence.

A hurricane warning is in place from the Alabama-Florida border to the Suwannee River in Florida.

"Let me be clear, Hurricane Michael is a monstrous storm", Florida Gov. Rick Scott said during a media conference Tuesday morning.

Emergency officials in both counties and statewide are closely watching the hurricane.

Unlike with the powerful and deadly Hurricane Irma previous year that ran up the state, Scott has left evacuation orders to county officials.

Michael is not expected to be a reprise of Florence, which pummeled the state for several days, producing record rainfall and river flooding, and has been blamed on 40 deaths in the state.

Storm surge watches and warnings were issued for much of the coast north and east of the Gulf of Mexico.
