Hurricane Michael - Good360

Hurricane Michael

Support is Underway

Hurricane Michael made landfall on Wednesday, October 10, near Mexico Beach, Florida as a Category 4 hurricane, shredding the area with its 155-mph winds and a devastating storm surge, leaving entire neighborhoods in ruins.  Catastrophic scenes have also emerged across other parts of the Florida Panhandle, and Michael has left more than 1 million homes and businesses without power.  Twenty-six deaths have now been attributed to Michael across 4 states (Source:  ABC News).

After slamming Florida and Georgia, Michael moved northeast through the already storm-weary Carolinas where tornadoes, high winds and additional heavy rainfall hit many of the same areas recently hit by Hurricane Florence.  Michael also caused flash floods in parts of North Carolina and southern Virginia.

Michael is not only the strongest hurricane to hit the Panhandle in recorded history, but is also the strongest storm in terms of wind speed to hit the continental US since since Hurricane Andrew in 1992.

Early estimates of damage already exceed $8 billion.  (Source:  CBS News)
