Florida gov gives an update on Hurricane Michael preparation

Florida gov gives an update on Hurricane Michael preparation

For the Columbus area, the National Weather Service in Peachtree City, Ga., as of Monday evening, is forecasting the possibility of tropical storm conditions much of the day Wednesday and into the night before calming down Thursday morning, with an 80 percent chance of precipitation to include heavy rainfall and wind gusts up to 20 miles per hour.

Winds in the 40 to 50 miles per hour range will reach the SC border as early as 8 p.m. Wednesday, says the center.

The fast developing storm is now a Category 1 hurricane expected to strengthen as it nears Florida.

More information on the specific impacts of Hurricane Michael will be available as the storm gets closer to Horry.

The National Hurricane Center reports Michael is forecast to be a risky major hurricane when it reaches the Gulf Coast on Wednesday with life-threatening storm surge possible along portions of the state, including Manatee County, which could see up to a four-foot storm surge.

Meanwhile, Scott, the Republican nominee for US Senate, will be leaving the campaign trail for the "next few days" to address storm preparations, a campaign spokesperson told CNN.

"This storm will be life-threatening and extremely risky", Scott said in a news briefing.

The storm was expected to bring up to 12 inches (30 cm) of rain with storm surges up to 12 feet (3.7 meters), according to the U.S. National Hurricane Center (NHC). A Tropical Storm Watch covered the area from Suwannee River to Anna Maria Island, which includes Tampa Bay.

Florida has already declared an emergency in 26 counties.

Scott also activated 500 National Guard Troops in advance of the storm. Michael has strenghtened swiftly into a category 1 hurricane.

"So, whatever we're doing, we've got to do something different", said the governor in 2016.

Meanwhile, broad swaths of the Carolinas could find themselves exposed to tropical storm-force winds as early as Wednesday evening.

Once Michael makes landfall, it is expected to move northeastward across the Florida panhandle into southern Georgia.

Since the storm will spend two to three days over the Gulf, "there is a real possibility that Michael will strengthen to a major hurricane before landfall", Berg wrote. This rainfall could lead to life-threatening flash floods and mudslides in areas of mountainous terrain.

Once the storm moves onto land, it will start to slow down and will most likely be significantly weaker than it is now, Steve Pfaff, warning coordination meteorologist with the National Weather Service in Wilmington, said. Additionally, a Tropical Storm Watch has been issued for inland Citrus, Hernando, Hillsborough, Levy, and Pasco counties.
