Michael charges into Southeast after slamming north Florida

Flood waters hit the Cooter Stew Cafe in Saint Marks Florida on Oct. 10 2018 as Hurricane Michael pushes the storm surge

With Hurricane Michael expected to make landfall Wednesday along the Florida Panhandle, most likely as a major hurricane, many are wondering what it means for Prince Edward Island.

In any case, no matter how you measure it, Michael is among the most powerful hurricanes in recent memory along with Camille in 1969, Andrew in 1992 and Katrina in 2005.

On Wednesday, she called for showers Thursday morning for most of the area, with rain increasing over the rest of the day and totaling 1 to 2 inches, with more south and east of D.C.

"Maximum sustained winds have decreased to near 50 miles per hour (85 km/h) with higher gusts".

With maximum sustained winds of 140 miles per hour, Hurricane Micheal is bearing down on the Florida panhandle this morning, having intensified into what the National Weather Service called an "extremely dangerous" Category 4 hurricane. They said Michael could be the strongest hurricane to hit that stretch of coastline in 13 years.

Hurricane Michael weakened to near tropical storm strength Wednesday night as it moved across southwestern Georgia, the National Hurricane Center said.

After there, the storm will move up through the Carolinas, hit by heavy rains form Hurricane Florence just a few weeks ago.

Part of the awning fell and shattered the glass front door of the hotel, and the rest of the awning wound up on vehicles parked below it. National Hurricane Center forecasters warn the back half of the hurricane will continue to spread risky storm surge and winds.

Patterson said about 2,500 of the town's 3,500 people were still there, including about 100 in a beachside area who ignored a mandatory evacuation order.

Corrigan said another reason why mental illness can be so costly is because it often affects younger people in their prime working years.

Regardless of Hurricane Michael's ultimate classification, those in the path of the storm are facing life-threatening winds, storm surge and other risky conditions. "Structures built before 2001 are not created to handle that type of wind, typically", Long said. "We didn't think it was going to be this bad".

"We are in new territory", National Hurricane Center Meteorologist Dennis Feltgen wrote on Facebook.

"Going back through records to 1851 we can't find another Cat 4 in this area, so this is unfortunately a historical and incredibly risky and life-threatening situation", he said.

Scientists have long warned that global warming will make storms more destructive, and some say the evidence for this may already be visible.
