Yesterday, on October 10 at 2 p.m. EDT, Hurricane Michael made landfall on the Florida Panhandle near the coastal town of Mexico Beach. Michael rapidly intensified as it approached the coast, and its minimum central pressure decreased to 919 mb, which is the third lowest pressure on record for a U.S. landfalling hurricane. With maximum sustained winds estimated to be 155 mph, Michael was nearly a Category 5 storm when it struck. Hurricane Michael is the strongest storm to hit the U.S. mainland since Hurricane Andrew in 1992.

As of 8 a.m. EDT on October 11, Tropical Storm Michael is located near 34.1°N, 81.8°W, or about 40 miles (65 km) west-northwest of Columbia, South Carolina. Maximum sustained winds are around 50 mph (85 km/h), and the minimum central pressure is 986 mb. Michael is moving to the northeast at 21 mph (33 km/h) and this motion will accelerate throughout the day as it traverses North Carolina and exits the U.S. either tonight or tomorrow morning in the vicinity of northeastern North Carolina or southeastern Virginia as an extratropical cyclone. Tropical storm-force winds are still being felt across southeast Georgia and South Carolina, and tropical storm warnings remain in effect along the southeastern U.S. from Georgia through the North Carolina Outer Banks. Heavy rainfall from Michael could produce flash flooding over portions of Georgia, the Carolinas—which are still recovering from Florence—and southeastern Virginia.
