"Hurricane Michael has made landfall in Florida, bringing with it winds of 155 miles per hour. Michael is on track to be the strongest hurricane to batter Florida since 1851.
“No long-time residents of this area will have seen a hurricane this strong before,” said the Weather Channel. No category-4 hurricane has ever made landfall along Florida’s panhandle, and Michael is set to bring winds of up to 155mph and waves of up to 13 feet, enough to rip roofs off houses, and bury them beneath the storm surge.
As well as being the strongest storm to hit Florida in over a century, Michael is poised to be the strongest to hit the US mainland since the extremely active hurricane season of 2004.
"It's a triple threat— it's got high surge, it's got heavy winds or strong winds and heavy rain and a wide area,” FEMA administrator Jeff Byard told Fox News.
“A storm like this could be a once-in-a-lifetime event,” Meteorologist Brett Rayburn told Bloomberg. “Winds of this intensity can really knock down any tree or structure in its path.”
After ripping through Florida, FEMA warned that Hurricane Michael could cause flash flooding throughout Alabama, Georgia, and North and South Carolina. The Carolinas are still recovering from the devastation caused by Hurricane Florence six weeks ago, and Michael is expected to be orders of magnitude stronger than Florence."
