The rapid increase in Michael's force came because of a phenomenon that meteorologists call "rapid intensification", which the National Hurricane Center defines as an increase in sustained wind speeds of at least 35 miles per hour in one day.

Hurricane Michael blasted parts of Florida's Gulf coast with 155mph winds last night, threatening devastation in flood-prone communities and posing a critical pre-election test for the state's political leaders.

Helen Neal, 88, and her husband, J.W. Neal, 87, preferred to take their chances in a hotel rather than in their two-story beachfront house about a mile away in Panama City.

Michael is likely to dump heavy rain over Florida, Alabama, Virginia, Georgia, and the Carolinas.

The three astronauts living on the International Space Station caught a terrifying glimpse of Hurricane Michael arriving on the western coast of Florida earlier today (Oct. 10).

The storm is also expected to batter North and SC both still recovering from Hurricane Florence, which left dozens dead and caused billions of dollars in damage last month.

Scientists have long warned that global warming will make storms more destructive, and some say the evidence for this may already be visible.

Without power, the city was plunged into darkness at nightfall and its flooded streets were mostly silent and devoid of people or traffic. More than 200 people were killed. A pine tree punched a hole in their roof and his ears even popped when the barometric pressure went lower.
