At least one person is dead and hundreds of thousands of homes are without power after Hurricane Michael made landfall on the Florida Panhandle Wednesday afternoon with 155 miles per hour winds.

A day after the supercharged storm crashed ashore amid white sand beaches, fishing towns and military bases, Michael was no longer a Category 4 monster packing 155 miles per hour winds.

Michael benefited from deep pockets of warm water in the Gulf, which meant that even as the storm stirred the water it crossed, it wasn't churning up cool water that could sap its strength, said Bryan Norcross, a hurricane specialist with WPLG, a TV station in South Florida.

Michael isn't alone. The National Hurricane Center says Hurricane Leslie and Tropical Storm Nadine are no threat to land over the open Atlantic Ocean, but Tropical Storm Sergio in the Pacific is blowing toward the Baja California Peninsula on a path across Mexico to the southern U.S. Plains and the Ozarks by the weekend.

"We can rebuild your house, but we can't rebuild your life", Governor Scott said.

There were no immediate reports of casualties but officials were fearing the worst.

"It's absolutely horrendous. Catastrophic", Crown said about the scene of devastation.

The National Weather Service office in the state capital Tallahassee issued a dramatic appeal for people to comply with evacuation orders.

Through the Emergency Management Assistance Compact, Florida has also requested rescue teams and equipment from states including Kansas, Wisconsin, Colorado, Mississippi, Virginia, Louisiana, Ohio, Oregon, New York, Tennessee and Maryland. President Donald Trump has endorsed Scott and DeSantis. He called for 100 percent federal cost share on debris removal in affected counties for the next 60 days, and also asked for transitional housing assistance.

Tornado watches were issued overnight for upstate SC counties including Chester, Union and York, just south of Charlotte.

"I wanted to let you guys know exactly what is going on", she said, speaking about a curfew that had been instituted in nearby Bay County because of concerns about looting from the outages.

Gulf Power spokesman Jeff Rogers warned that customers could be without power "for weeks" as crews are expected both to be restoring power and rebuilding parts of the system.

Gen, Terrence O'Shaughnessy, commander of the North American Aerospace Defense Command, said some Florida residents may have been taken by surprise by the rapid escalation of the storm. Thousands hunkered down in shelters overnight after fleeing their homes to escape the fast-approaching storm. Those winds are expected to arrive between noon and 3 p.m. and will continue until 6 a.m. Thursday.

Shredded trees, derailed train cars and a sunken trailer are seen in the aftermath of Hurricane Michael in Panama City, Fla., Wednesday, Oct. 10, 2018.

Tallahassee Electric reported just over 3,000 outages and almost 50,000 customers impacted.

Corelogic's initial pre-landfall estimate of the industry loss is for a range of $2 billion to as much as $4.5 billion, from wind and storm surge damage.

"There are so many downed power lines and trees that it's nearly impossible to get through the city", Apalachicola Mayor Van Johnson said.
