Prepare for effects of Tropical Storm Michael Wednesday-Friday

Prepare for effects of Tropical Storm Michael Wednesday-Friday

Michael is expected to move inland over the Florida Panhandle or Florida Big Bend area on Wednesday, and then move northeastward across the southeastern United States Wednesday night and Thursday. Impacts from Tropical Storm Michael will be experienced much sooner than the actual landfall itself (which occurs when the due center of the eye crosses over land). The fix bill came in at more than $60 billion, ranking Irma among the most costly storms in USA history.

Data from an Air Force Reserve Hurricane Hunter aircraft indicate that maximum sustained winds have increased to near 75 miles per hour (120 km/h) with higher gusts.

10 A.M.: According to the National Hurricane Center's Advisory No. 4, Tropical Depression 14 continues to become better organized and is near tropical storm strength.

The system is expected to bring rain around the same time the King Tide is expected, making St. Augustine and other areas more vulnerable to flooding.

With Hurricane Michael rapidly intensifying and threatening to smash Florida's Panhandle with risky storm surge, flooding and winds, Gov. Rick Scott didn't mince words on Monday night: "Making decisions tomorrow might be too late". Michael is moving toward the north at 5.0 miles per hour (7.0 kph), with maximum sustained winds of 60 miles per hour (95 kph) and a minimum central pressure that has fallen to 997 MB or 29.44 inches.

If it were to track north and closer to the Appalachian Mountains, we could see higher rain totals later this coming week.

Mbappe scored four times in 13 minutes on Sunday but also missed a number of chances, which does not surprise Griezmann. However, the Manchester United man believes he should not win the Ballon d'Or ahead of his worldwide team-mates.

A state of emergency was issued on Sunday by Florida Governor Rick Scott for the 26 counties in the Florida Panhandle and the Big Bend area. The storm is about 200 miles SSW of Apalachicola and moving north at 12 mph.

Tropical Storm watches were extended to include the MS coastal counties with the 4 p.m. update from the National Hurricane Center.

"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.

Michael is the 13th named storm of the 2018 hurricane season, according to hurricane center spokesman Dennis Feltgen.

The hurricane center advised residents along the northeastern and central U.S. Gulf Coast to monitor the storm's progress. Andrew Gillum, the Democratic mayor of Tallahassee who is vying to succeed Scott as the state's governor, has called off campaign events on Monday and Tuesday to focus on storm preparation, CNN reported. Keep in mind that in a hurricane, the impacts can stretch hundreds of miles outside the center - including wind, tropical downpours that lead to flooding, storm surge, and tornadoes.
