  • Hurricane Michael made its way through the Gulf of Mexico Monday

Michael will produce very heavy rain, strong wind, and storm surge. Flash flooding is also expected to be a major concern as the storm continues to push inland.

If Michael makes landfall with winds of 125 m.p.h. or greater, as projected, it would be the strongest hurricane ever to hit the Panhandle. They also can text MICHAEL to 898211, said United Way's 2-1-1 coordinator Candace Poole.

"We are in new territory", National Hurricane Center meteorologist Dennis Feltgen wrote on Facebook.

Panama City Beach fire department chief Larry Couch urged residents to evacuate. It is, simply, a history-changing storm.

Unlike Florence, Hurricane Michael is likely to be stronger, windier and fast-moving when it reaches the Florida Panhandle sometime Wednesday.

It appeared to be so powerful that it was expected to remain a hurricane as it moves into Alabama and Georgia early Thursday. Sustained winds will be 25-35 miles per hour.

A classic October storm, Hurricane Michael is quite the contrast to September's Florence. The central pressure remains 965 millibars. Much of this part of Florida is rural areas known for small tourist cities, beaches, wildlife reserves and Tallahassee, the state capital.

There was no change in the watches and warnings lineup from the previous advisory.

That number is expected to jump quickly once Hurricane Michael makes landfall.

According to the latest bulletin released by the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA), the enormous storm has weekend slightly since it made landfall.

A Hurricane Watch before landfall extends from the Alabama/Florida state border to the Suwannee River west of Gainesville.

Looking ahead to the aftermath of the storm and the likely downed trees and utility lines, Graham said, "You have to stay away from those power lines". Residents in these areas should follow all advice given by their local officials.

About 3.7 million people are under hurricane warnings in Florida's Panhandle and Big Bend regions, along with parts of southeastern Alabama and southern Georgia.
