Hurricane Michael Likely to Make Landfall near Panama City

  • Hurricane Michael, the powerful Category 4 storm on Wednesday went very close to become the strongest hurricane in the history to strike the Florida Panhandle. It rapidly caught on strength which left many surprised. The storm had sustained wind speed of 145 mph. Gov. Rick Scott stated that “This is the worst storm that our Florida Panhandle has seen in a century. Hurricane Michael is upon us, and now is the time to seek refuge.” The highly dangerous storm is estimated to make landfall near Laguna Beach and Panama City.
