Governor Scott: Michael is “worst storm in a century”
Hurricane Michael made landfall with 155 miles an hour winds.
The National Hurricane Center says Hurricane Michael is “potentially catastrophic.” Trees are swaying in the heavy rain and winds and high flood waters fill the streets in Panama City Beach.
At an earlier briefing today, Governor Rick Scott described the storm as the worst to hit the area in a century. An estimated 30 million people in the southeast are in Michael’s path. States of emergency are in effect for Florida, Alabama, and Georgia.
Florida officials say about 375,000 people up and down the Gulf Coast have been urged or ordered to evacuate.
