Where Is Hurricane Michael Right Now?

Where Is Hurricane Michael Right Now?”

In 2016, Hurricane Matthew, which caused the deaths of almost 600 people in Haiti, quickly grew to a Category 5 storm with sustained winds up 165 miles an hour because of rapid intensification. The roar of the winds, he said, sounded like a jet engine.

Only three major hurricanes have made landfall in the Florida Panhandle since 1950, Eloise in 1975, Opal in 1995 and Dennis in 2005.

"It's hard to convey in words the scale of the catastrophe in Panama City". A house on the highway. But she added emergency crews trying to reach the home were hampered by downed trees and debris blocking roadways.

Parts of the Florida Panhandle are expected to see rain between 100 and 200 millimetres but local amounts there may exceed 300 millimetres in some areas, with hurricane-force winds and a storm surge of up to four metres. More than 40,000 people lost power across the state. More than 1,000 state forestry and wildlife officers were prepared for search-and-rescue operations, Scott said.

And tornado warnings radiated out into counties near the hurricane's path in Georgia on Tuesday evening, after reports of at least two that had formed in Florida.

The risk of life-threatening storm surge, flooding rains, and risky winds are increasing for the northeastern Gulf Coast.

"Oh my God, what are we seeing?" said evacuee Rachel Franklin, her mouth hanging open.

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. This storm could also have some profound effects on how the sector thinks about (and models) loss potential from Gulf Coast hurricanes as a result of the pre-landfall intensification and distance inland that hurricane force winds have been measured. In Mexico Beach, population 1,000, the storm shattered homes, leaving floating piles of lumber. Michael washed away white sand beaches, hammered military bases and destroyed coastal communities, stripping trees to stalks, shredding roofs, toppling trucks and pushing boats into buildings.

Hours earlier, meteorologists watched satellite imagery in complete awe as the storm intensified. By Friday, it should be a post-tropical cyclone, according to the National Hurricane Center. The hurricane is forecast to hit the Florida Panhandle at a possible category 4 storm.

The storm is likely to fire up the debate over global warming.

Across the bay in Panama City Beach, a resort city on the Gulf of Mexico known for its white-sand beach and amusement parks, winds of about 100 miles per hour furiously whipped the trees in the early afternoon and pulled apart homes. But without extensive study, they can not directly link a single weather event to the changing climate.

"It feels like a nightmare", she said."Looking at the pictures, I'm thinking there is not a house left in that town". "She's my baby", a distraught O'Brien said, her face wet with tears.
