Florida State University will close as Hurricane Michael approaches the coast

Tropical Storm Michael has max sustained winds of 70 miles per hour and is moving north at 7mph. Its center is located 500 miles south of Appalachicola and is moving north at 9mph.

In some parts of the Florida coast, storm surges are projected to approach eleven feet.

Tropical Storm Michael formed on Sunday in the Caribbean Sea and appears to have designs on the panhandle and big bend regions of Florida, according to early forecast tracks.

A tropical storm off Mexico's Yucatan Peninsula has rapidly strengthened and could become a unsafe hurricane before an expected midweek strike on the Gulf Coast in the Florida Panhandle, forecasters said Monday. "We're making sure that any debris that is on the street is removed prior to the storm so that the water can actually get out of the system as soon as the king tide recedes". Hurricane and Storm Surge Watches have been issued for parts of the Florida Gulf Coast, please monitor the National Hurricane Center and your local National Weather Service office for details as it relates to the protection of life and property.

The storm was centered about 80 kilometers off the western tip of Cuba, and about 220 kilometers east-northeast of Cozumel, Mexico.

Gov. Rick Scott visited Pasco County on Monday and begged residents to prepare as Hurricane Michael built steam heading toward Florida's Gulf Coast. Pfaff said that even if a tree did not fall in the last storm, it could be at a higher risk of falling this time.

"Alabama is once again in the path of a hurricane, but I know Alabamians will once again come together and be prepared for whatever Michael may bring", Ivey stated.


"So, whatever we're doing, we've got to do something different", said the governor in 2016. The storm's tropical storm-force winds extended 175 miles from its center.

Michael is likely to be a strong category two storm - and possibly a major hurricane (i.e. category three or higher) - when it arrives on the gulf coast of the United States late Wednesday.

The governor also activated 1,250 National Guardsmen and said he would waive tolls for residents who were evacuating. Meanwhile, Hurricane Michael is forecast to hit Florida's northwestern coast by October 10.

"Hurricane Michael is forecast to become a major hurricane and it will produce wide-spread power outages and debris that will challenge our response and recovery in the southern and Wiregrass counties". A warning indicates tropical storm conditions are expected, in this case, within 24 hours.

A Hurricane Warning is in effect for western Cuba.

"We will look in the morning where the storm is tracking, the intensity of the storm", said Capt. Chris Volz, head of the Baker County Emergency Operations Center.
