Hurricane Michael to hit Florida, but will there be any ME impact?

Hurricane Michael to hit Florida, but will there be any ME impact?

Hurricane Michael has strengthened to a category two storm, with winds reaching in excess of 100mph (155km/h) as it barrels towards the Florida coast.

The center said Michael could reach land as a Category 3 hurricane, with maximum sustained winds of at least 111 miles per hour.

Thursday: The remnants of Hurricane Michael will bring a significant plume of Gulf moisture and elevated wind speeds to southeast Georgia.

Secretary of State Ken Detzner announced an extension Tuesday morning that will allow county supervisors to accept paper voter-registration applications when they reopen from the storm. The far-outer thunderstorm bands of Hurricane Michael will pass over the Florida Panhandle in the early morning hours Wednesday.

"You can not hide from storm surge", Florida Gov. Rick Scott warned at a news conference Tuesday.

"If you decide to stay in your home and a tree falls on your house or the storm surge catches you and you're now calling for help, there's no one that can respond to help you", Morgan said at a news conference. The hurricane warning also extends inland to southwestern Georgia.

But here are ten reasons to FEAR Hurricane Michael.

"You will see damage to infrastructure, you will see power outages, and services that we are used to will be interrupted due to Hurricane Michael", he said. "Heavy rainfall from Michael could produce life-threatening flash flooding from the Florida Panhandle and Big Bend region into portions of Georgia and SC".

Bay County Sheriff Tommy Ford said he's "not seeing the level of traffic" he would expect when three-quarters of the county's residents are under mandatory and voluntary evacuation orders. "As Hurricane Michael nears landfall, we are working with state and local officials in Florida to take all necessary precautions", Trump said on Monday. A storm surge watch is in effect for the Anclote River to Anna Maria Island, including Tampa Bay, and for the Alabama-Florida border to the Okaloosa-Walton County line.

That means he will have to duke it out on October 28 with left-wing candidate Fernando Haddad , who came in second at 29 percent. This serious crisis in Brazil has emerged from a mixture of factors that have been festering in society since 2013.

Peaton says he's working closely with the National Weather Service to provide accurate information and protective measures to his county, which faces the Gulf of Mexico and is especially vulnerable to any flooding produced by Michael.

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

Scott has already declared a state of emergency in 35 counties, and the Florida National Guard has activated 1,250 troops for planning, logistics and emergency response. "We're going to get storm surge, we have wind, we have a chance of flooding, we have a significant chance of tornadoes".

"Don't think that you can ride this out if you're in a low-lying area", Nelson said on CNN. The storm was centered about 30 miles off the western tip of Cuba, and about 520 miles south of Apalachicola.

Florida State University announced it was closing for the week on Tuesday, along with schools in Leon County, home to the state capital Tallahassee.

Shipping ports including Gulfport and Pascagoula, Mississippi; Mobile, Alabama, and Pensacola, Florida, were open on Monday, but the U.S. Coast Guard warned of gale-force winds in the next 48 hours.

Mandatory evacuations have been issued in much of the Florida Panhandle and Big Bend areas.

When winds reach 119km/h (74mph), it is known as a hurricane - in the Atlantic and Eastern Pacific - or a typhoon in the Western Pacific. It is expected to become a hurricane by Tuesday. Residents are being urged to evacuate inland.

The sheriff's office says Michael "has the potential to be a historic storm - please take heed".
