STORM WATCH: HURRICANE MICHAEL IS MAKING LANDFALL

152003_key_messages_sm.png

Hurricane Michael is coming ashore now - at Panama City, Florida - as a 150 mph Category 4 hurricane. This storm is potentially catastrophic; if Michael reaches the coast with top winds of at least 130 mph (minimal Category 4 strength), it will be the strongest hurricane landfall ever recorded in the Florida Panhandle, as well as along most of Florida's Gulf Coast — all the way from the Alabama border to Punta Gorda — in records going back to 1851. PLEASE be safe.

Michael's track will take it up through Georgia, near Atlanta, then it will veer off to the North East. Highways impacted include I-10, I-20, and I-85 & I-95. Operations will likely be impacted throughout its path. Again, PLEASE be safe.
