  • Storm clouds form before Hurricane Michael comes ashore

The storm is expected to hit many military-heavy areas that were just struck by Hurricane Florence.

Some the initial images emerging of powerful Hurricane Michael's impact on parts of the Florida Panhandle on Wednesday show the destructive force of the storm.

Michael hit Florida with wind speeds of 155 miles per hour (250 kilometers per hour), placing it nearly into Category 5 scale, which starts at 157 mph.

First responders in Bay County were no longer able to respond to emergencies as of Wednesday morning and Florida Highway Patrol pulled troopers away from coastal areas, saying it was too unsafe for them to remain.

About 310,942 customers in the state were without power as of Wednesday evening, according to PowerOutage.us.

Human-caused greenhouse gases in the atmosphere create an energy imbalance, with more than 90% of remaining heat trapped by the gases going into the oceans, according to the National Oceanographic and Atmospheric Association.

"Going back through records to 1851 we can't find another Cat 4 in this area, so this is unfortunately a historical and incredibly risky and life-threatening situation", he said.

Patricia Mulligan said she survived Hurricane Andrew in 1992, only to encounter the wrath of another storm Wednesday.

The NHC said at 6 p.m.

Hurricane Michael will also cause almost one million people to be without power, not just on the coast but inland as well in Alabama, Florida, and Georgia.

The hurricane, one of the most powerful hurricanes ever to strike the USA mainland, left at least two people dead.

The National Weather Service issued multiple tornado warnings in Georgia as the hurricane pushed through the state, and local media report tornadoes had touched down near Roberta, Perry and Fort Valley in Central Georgia.

"If there's others that are still in those areas or maybe people in Richmond that have loved ones that are in those areas and can still get out safely - we urge them to do so because it's not worth risking your life", he said.

Aguero nominated for Ballon d'Or
De Bruyne was nominated for helping his club win the Premier League and his country reach the World Cup semi-finals. Kylian Mbappe is third-favourite after winning the World Cup with France at the age of 19, with 6-1 odds.

States of emergency have been declared in Florida, Alabama, Georgia and once again, North Carolina.

Ken Graham, director of the Miami-based National Hurricane Center, said Michael is "unfortunately, a historical and incredibly unsafe and life-threatening situation".

A day after the Category 4 monster blew ashore along the Panhandle with 155 miles per hour winds, the Coast Guard said it rescued at least 27 people, mostly from homes damaged along the Florida coastline, and searched for more victims.

Here, boats docked in Panama City, Fla., are seen in a pile of rubble after Michael passed through the downtown area on Wednesday.

As the Category 4 storm's center crossed nearby, Mulligan said, the concrete building shook and vibrated against sustained winds around 155 miles per hour.

There has been only one storm with higher sustained wind speeds this far north in the Gulf of Mexico: Hurricane Camille in 1969.
