Updates, tracking resources as storm makes landfall

A National Ocean Service water level station at Apalachicola recently reported almost 6.5 feet of inundation above ground level.

Michael will move northeastward across the southeastern USA through Thursday night, and then move off the Mid-Atlantic coast away from the United States on Friday.

Videos have been posted throughout the day as the hurricane hits the Gulf Coast and one in particular taken in Panama City Beach, Florida shows the insane power of the storm.

In Panama City, located just west of where the monster storm made landfall, drone video taken by storm chaser Brett Adair shows how the winds and rain ravaged a middle school. The storm's maximum sustained winds have decreased to 50 miles per hour (80 kph) and it was moving to the northeast at 21 miles per hour (33 kph). So when the air pressure drops to such a point like 919 millibars, the air moves incredibly fast. I urge all Floridians in the Panhandle to continue sheltering in place, and listening to local authorities. The high winds and saturated soil will contribute to the problem, said the National Hurricane Center.

"I just need to know he's OK".

At 11.00 am Eastern time (0200 AEDT), Michael was about 95 kms south-southwest of Panama City and moving north-northeast at 22km/h, the NHC said.

Eduardo Nunez charged Gleyber Torres' four-hopper toward third base and whipped the ball across the diamond. The fifth was where he encountered his most significant threat. "Because Aaron Judge's bat will talk".

A auto is seen caught in floodwaters in Panama City, Fla. The areas from Chassahowitzka to Anna Maria Island and between the Alabama-Florida border and the Okaloosa-Walton county line could see 2 feet to 4 feet of storm surge.

Boats lay sunk and damaged at the Port St. Joe Marina after Hurricane Michael slammed into the Florida Panhandle.

"Everyone ... should not venture out into the relative calm of the eye, as hazardous winds will increase very quickly as the eye passes", according to the agency.

The stunning scope of Hurricane Michael's rampage started coming into focus Thursday, as dawn in Panama City, Florida revealed a sprawling mess of nearly unimaginable devastation wrought by the third-most powerful hurricane in recorded history to lash the USA mainland.

The aircraft also reported that the minimum pressure has fallen to 923 millibars, meaning more strengthening could occur before landfall by mid-afternoon Wednesday.

President Donald Trump has since approved an emergency declaration for Florida, permitting the federal government to provide resources and aid during Hurricane Michael. The high winds will continue through Thursday night with gusts as high as 24 miles per hour, says the National Weather Service.

But he left Saudi Arabia in 2017, fearing censorship and possible detention at the hands of the Crown Prince Mohammad bin Salman. The two soon agreed to marry, but in order to do so he needed to finalise his divorce with his first wife in Saudi Arabia.

The death toll was revised to 2,975 fatalities, either in the storm itself or later as the health care and utilities grids failed.

Tornadoes are possible across parts of the Florida Panhandle and the northern Florida peninsula through this afternoon. Forecasters said rainfall could reach up to a foot (30 centimeters), and the life-threatening storm surge could swell to 14 feet (4 meters).

After landfall as a Category 4 storm, Michael will march northeast through the southeast US and remain at least a Category 1 storm well into Georgia.

A Tropical Storm Warning and a Flash Flood Watch remain in effect for Mecklenburg County and much of the surrounding region, with the National Weather Service predicting a 100 percent chance of rain for Charlotte.

A Storm Surge Watch has been issued for the coast of North Carolina from Ocracoke Inlet to Duck.

Only two other storms in recorded American weather history - that is, since 1851 - had stronger winds.
