'TOO LATE TO LEAVE': Hurricane Michael Could Strengthen to CAT 5, Landfall in Hours

posted by Hannity Staff - 10.10.18

Hurricane Michael is gathering strength and picking up steam as it heads towards the coast of Florida’s panhandle Wednesday; potentially becoming a Category 5 storm as it makes landfall later today.

“As powerhouse Michael, a Category 4 hurricane, hurtled closer to the Florida Panhandle on Wednesday, the supercharged storm had maximum sustained winds of 150 mph – just seven miles shy of a Category 5,” warned USA Today.

“It’s our first storm (forecast) to be on top of us,” said one longtime resident. “We’ve had a number of them come into the Gulf, and either come to the left or the right of us. But never on top of us.”

“The time to evacuate coastal areas has come and gone,” said Florida Governor Rick Scott. “If you are in an inland county you might have one more chance to evacuate, but only if local officials say it is safe.”

Hurricane Michael continued to grow in the warm waters in the Gulf of Mexico overnight Tuesday; escalating to a monster Category 4 storm as it barrels towards the Florida panhandle.

The dangerous hurricane is now clocking 145 mph winds and 31-foot waves and may continue to strengthen as it heads towards land.

Weather forecasters are saying Michael will likely be the biggest storm to hit the region in over a century.

“Hurricane Michael is a dangerous, catastrophic life-threatening storm,” said one forecaster. “The panhandle of Florida has never had a Cat 4 landfall in their history, and Michael could go down as the strongest hurricane to hit the U.S. in the month of October.”
