Hurricane Michael Turns Mean Against Florida, Then Georgia

Hurricane Michael, a now-bonafide Category 3 force of nature at up to 120 mph, is roaring towards Florida, Georgia, and then to a lesser extent, the Carolinas.

The National Weather Service has termed Michael as a “life-threatening” major hurricane that is expected to slam into the Florida Panhandle on Wednesday.

NWS warns that “Significant hazards and impacts are expected, including hurricane-force winds, life-threatening storm surge, heavy rainfall and severe weather with tornadoes. Also, a strong storm system continues to produce heavy to excessive rain and widespread flooding in the central US.”

A tropical storm warning has been issued for Fernandina Beach in Florida, to South Santee River in South Carolina.

Announced school closures, as of Tuesday afternoon, PDT.

Michael will be a major hurricane by the time it slams into the Florida Panhandle on Wednesday.
