ugh, this is going to be a bad one for our friends in FL



Hurricane-force wind gusts, torrential rains, and a massive storm surge are belting Florida’s Panhandle as extremely dangerous Hurricane Michael closes in on an afternoon landfall. At 11:30 am EDT, the hurricane hunters found that Michael was still intensifying, with sustained winds of 150 mph and a central pressure of 923 mb. A storm surge of over seven feet was already affecting the Panhandle, inundating many escape routes. Michael is poised to be one of the most top-ten most intense hurricanes on record to make landfall in the U.S.

Edit: South/Central GA, SC, NC and probably some N. Georgia, too.
