Historic Hurricane Michael hits Florida — WHAT’S HAPPENING

All eyes are on Hurricane Michael. Will it have an impact on Maine

While the county shouldn't get an overwhelming amount of rain, Hofstad said that because the area had experienced a wet summer and early fall the combination of high wind and rain would probably down trees, dropping them on power lines and into road ways from which they'll have to be cleared.

The forecaster's long-range models are calling for the possibility of heavy rainfall in parts of Nova Scotia, depending on how close the system comes to the province. In nearby Panama City, homes were shredded and boats tossed.

Alabama is just west of the target area, and Georgia just north. "There's nothing our state can not recover from, because there is no state that cares, loves, or comes together like Florida", Scott tweeted Wednesday. "Panama City, I don't know if there will be much left". Nearby Liberty County had 81 percent of accounts without power, the state reported.

Medical Sacred Heart lost its windows and sustained damage to its roof and exterior walls.

Franklin County has one highway - United States 98 - running east and west through it. It will weaken steadily, becoming a tropical storm by Thursday morning, the agency said. "Would I like to get out of here?"

Other states felt the storm's impact as it moved deeper into the Southeast.

Gov. Nathan Deal of Georgia issued an emergency declaration for 92 counties in the southern part of that state. The hurricane has given him national exposure less than a month before the November 6 showdown against Republican Ron DeSantis, but the notoriety could backfire if Tallahassee is unable to quickly recover. "I didn't expect all this", he said. "This storm surge is coming with a vengeance".

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

The storm quickly sprang from a weekend tropical depression, reaching Category 4 early Wednesday as it drew energy from the Gulf of Mexico's warm waters. National Hurricane Center, the storm made landfall before 2 p.m. ET. "It's not behaving normally. And the one thing you can't get back in a disaster is time". President Donald Trump has endorsed DeSantis. He said the storm "grew into a monster". That's when dark clouds will begin to roll in, spreading an increased chance of rain throughout the area, according to Tony Hurts, a meteorologist for the National Weather Service in Ruskin. "Hurricane Michael is an unprecedented event and can not be compared to any of our previous events".

Tallahassee, a city of 200,000, sits 100 miles east of Panama City. The storm rolled to the northeast, sideswiping the state capital, Tallahassee.

In Panama City, about 20 miles northwest of Mexico Beach, the power went out at Country Inn Suites. His office said he would tour the devastated areas next week.

"We are deploying a massive wave of responses by land, air and sea", he said. The worst damage - she thought - was in her yard.

Aja Kemp, 36, planned to stay in her mobile home in Crawfordville.

But it is not a heavily populated area.

By Thursday evening, Michael will have moved inland and most of the storm's effects will have dissipated around Tampa Bay, forecasters said. "A number of homes have rooftop tarps that could be damaged or blown away with this wind".

"We will be in for a long-term sheltering mission", he said.

Hurricane-force winds extended 45 miles from the eye Wednesday night, the National Hurricane Center said, and less severe tropical storm-force winds extended 160 miles.

"Michael's still a strong, powerful hurricane, well inland".

Twenty miles (32 km) south of Mexico Beach, floodwaters were more than 7 feet (2.1 meters) deep near Apalachicola, a town of about 2,300 residents, hurricane center chief Ken Graham said.
