Strange, these storms are usually not on us so quickly.

The last storm they were hawking it days before it hit. Now I’m not an expert on this but isn’t this one a fast arrival?





TALLAHASSEE, Fla. --
A fast and furious Hurricane Michael sped toward the Florida Panhandle on Tuesday with 120 mph winds and a potential storm surge of 13 feet, giving tens of thousands of people precious little time to get out or board up.

Drawing energy from the warm waters of the Gulf of Mexico, the storm strengthened rapidly into a potentially devastating Category 3 by evening. It was expected to blow ashore around midday Wednesday near Panama City Beach, along a lightly populated stretch of fishing villages and white-sand spring-break beaches



Let's get our ATS weather conspiracy experts on this.

And let us all hope for the safety of the people in the way of the hurricane

It's all because of DARPA and HAARP experiments.

There's too much salt in the water.

I just saw on the news that this storm is expected to grow into a Cat. 4 by tomorrow. It's because of the warm water(s) in the Gulf of Mexico.

My family in the area are going to shelters, it's just too risky where they are located.

Please access shelters if need be.
So many pets were left behind during Florence as in other hurricanes, please note the following,
Pet owner rights and shelters if deciding on whether to stay home versus the safety of a shelter.

I’m not an expert but I recall the MSM was all over the last storm for days. I guess this one is a fast developer and so far not much media, as usual, these hurricanes elicit.

Again good advice from above to get to safety fast.

Nope. They've been forecasting this since the weekend.

Here's where to get non sensational forecasts. www.nhc.noaa.gov...

Since they figured out they can clear out an entire states store shelves and gas pumps.

Gulf storms are notorious for heating up in super fast order because the water is always warm.

This one has no wind shear and has been forecast as being likely to grow fast and NOAA got it right so far.

I just heard about it the day before yesterday, and now all of a sudden it's coming in tomorrow. Very unusual to come in so fast and it grow from tropical storm to almost cat 4 hurricane in about 2 days.

Gulf-formed storms are nothing new.

I live literally on the coast of Texas, the upper Texas coast, and everyone down here that is permanent resident watches very closely every little deoression that forms near the gulf as each one can suddenly spin up overnight.

We had one form overnight about 10 years ago called Humberto and it became a cat 1 when over land! Also Allison (tropical storm) suddenly changed course about 2am. Instead of going into Corpus Christi as predicted, she sat on Galveston and flooded Houston (and us here, we were stuck for two weeks+) then passed over Houston to return. The damage was almost as bad as the recent Harvey.

Down here, you watch closely and are ready to bug-out quickly beginning in June until November.

A combination of very warm water and favorable environmental conditions enabled Michael to explode into a major hurricane.

It is not unprecedented.

I do feel strongly most storms are over hyped. This one may be the exception as serious to catastrophic damage appears inevitable.

Hopefully those in the danger zone have headed the warnings and either evacuated or in a safe structure high enough to avoid the storm surge.

Category 4 now.

Conditions must be perfect for Michael to strengthen so quickly.

The Weather Channel just said the EYE of Michael will come ashore at approximately 2pm (ET) Wednesday afternoon, as a Category 4 storm.

This will be the first hurricane to come ashore (in the U.S.) during daylight hours over the past couple of seasons.

Strong Cat 4. Very dangerous storm. Reminds me of Katrina. There wasn't much coverage that i saw on evacuations, but i truly hope people left, but i have a feeling a lot stayed thinking it was going to be a Cat 2.

Hunker down and stay safe Florida. Heed the warnings.

My partner and I live in Tallahassee. Expecting power outages and we are prepared. Evacuation were ordered for some along the Gulf Coast. We are in a safe place but Tally is going to get that North East edge which has dangerous winds. My partner is a nurse so we can't evacuate. Praying for no tornados. I'll keep updating when possible.
