Hurricane Michael Downgraded To Tropical Storm After Battering Florida Panhandle

  • Hurricane Michael threatens Florida with 150mph winds - Live

As the hurricane, downgraded to a category-3 storm, moved into Alabama and Georgia on Wednesday evening, Florida Governor Rick Scott urged locals to stay inside and off the roads, as rescuers were on their way to the most heavy-hit areas.

Michael is predicted to be a tropical storm by the time it reaches the SC border with Georgia, according to the National Weather Service.

"It feels like a nightmare", she said."Looking at the pictures, I'm thinking there is not a house left in that town".

A woman and her children stand near a destroyed gas station in Panama City. But the fast-moving, fast-strengthening storm didn't give people much time to prepare, and emergency authorities lamented that many ignored the warnings and seemed to think they could ride it out.

Bo Patterson, the mayor of Port St Joe, south of Mexico Beach, was among 2,500 people there who defied evacuation orders.

Panama City looked like a war zone after being battered for almost three hours by strong winds and heavy rains.

Ken Graham, director of the Miami-based National Hurricane Centre, said Michael is "unfortunately, a historical and incredibly risky and life-threatening situation".

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.

Based on wind speed, it was the fourth-strongest, behind Andrew in 1992, Camille, and the biggest one of all, an unnamed 1935 Labor Day storm that had winds of 296kph. "We thought the windows were going to break at any time", Beu said.

The National Hurricane Center forecasted that a few areas could see up to a foot of rain.

There were scenes of devastation in Mexico Beach, a community of about 1,000 people where Michael made landfall around 1pm Eastern time - with houses floating in flooded streets, some ripped from their foundations and missing roofs.

"It's going to be awful", Thomas told CNN. "You know, that's hard", she said, choking back tears.

President Donald Trump declared a state of emergency for all of Florida, freeing up federal assistance to supplement state and local disaster responses.

Trump was briefed on the hurricane on Wednesday prior to it making landfall and said he would visit the area early next week.

"This situation has NEVER happened before", it said on Twitter. Forecasters said it will unleash damaging wind and rain all the way into the Carolinas, which are still recovering from Hurricane Florence's epic flooding.

Scientists have long warned that global warming will make storms more destructive, and some say the evidence for this may already be visible. The planet has warmed significantly over the past several decades, causing changes in the environment.

The lower the minimum pressure, the more intense the hurricane.

The deadliest hurricane on record cost the lives of about 20,000 people, with most of the damage and fatalities occurring in Barbados and surrounding islands. More than 40,000 people lost power across the state.

Thousands of evacuees sought shelter in Tallahassee, which is about 25 miles from the coast but is covered by live oak and pine trees that can fall and cause power outages even in smaller storms.
