I live in Florida, grew up here. This is not unusual in any way shape or form. If you lived here you would have been seeing Michael on the news since it formed way far out in the ocean.

I'm on the East coast. We got Irma and Matthew so I'm glad this one is going somewhere else this time.

They always hype storms up, ALWAYS. Those of us who have lived here our entire lives tend to not listen to the hype. Who knows what will happen. I've seen it's a 4, now a 3. The same happened with Irma and Matthew then when they actually hit they were a 1.

Its a 4 with 145mph winds and a pressure of 933mb.

As I posted earlier, this one may exceed the hype.

I am a Florida native, I have stayed durring mandatory evacuations but I would run from this one if I could. That said its to late to run, surge is already an issue.

The buildings along the gulf at Panama City are going to take a real beating.

It looks like thevstorm is starting to move NE now...Panama City may be on the west side of the eye wall so maybe not the worst case scenario for them....i cant say the same for Apalachicola.

Gawd, pity the Carolinas. The rivers there are still high from the after-effects of Florence and there's a lot of land still saturated with water. Add torrential rain from Michael and it's going see yet more widespread flooding for towns and cities that are still mopping up from the last few weeks.

My husband and I were talking about this the other day. It was like this one just snuck up out of no where. I blame the media coverage of the Kavanaugh thing. All media was so busy covering that event they didn't have time to fit in the fact that a storm / major hurricane was rushing across the ocean.

It wasn't even a TS a couple of days (or so) ago. But the weather scientists were talking about it intensifying. I have been looking at it for quite a few days. Reminded me of Harvey last year.

But the weather talking heads didn't get on it until it got big enough for the average person to notice. People in general don't pay attention until it's a big deal.

Yeah because people are stupid and they're too busy worrying about pointless # that the news "tells" them to worry about. I have seen hardly any coverage about the EQ and Tsunami in Indonesia, despite the fact that when it's all said and done the death toll will be over 2,000 souls.

Actually it really did come out of nowhere. Here's a link to the Tropical Storm Risk website. If you click on the area and then on 'Michael' on the list then you can see that it formed and intensified quite quickly. I saw a projection for it last Friday I think that had it staying a tropical storm and dissipating. Unfortunately it must have found optimal conditions for intensification. Even the State of Florida was caught on the hop by this one.

Yeah, yeah... okay. But still, people just don't pay enough attention!
I hope everyone is smart and safe for this one.

Report on TV from some one in an apt in Panama City. Going to ride out their first hurricane. Good luck and watch out for airborne debris.

Looks like flooding in Apalachicola.

Looks like it's made landfall just north west of Mexico Beach. Water is being pushed upstream Apalachicola river.

Appears that the east eye wall crossed over Mexico Beach. Panama City very close to west eye wall.

Sustained wind speed 60 mph gusting to 117 in Tallahassee. We still have power but my sister in law 10 miles away lost power 2 hours ago.
