After gaining strength overnight, Hurricane Michael will be a storm of unprecedented intensity for the Florida Panhandle when it is expected to make landfall later today (Oct. 10).
“This storm will bring deadly surge to the Florida Panhandle and Big Bend coast and is not comparable to anything we have seen before,” the National Weather Service forecast office in Tallahassee said in a warning just after 1 a.m. ET.
Hurricane Michael became a Category 4 storm overnight, packing 140 mph (220 km/h) winds with even stronger gusts. The storm would be the most powerful hurricane to hit the mainland United States this year. [Hurricane Season 2018: How Long It Lasts and What to Expect]
