“The most destructive storm to hit the Florida panhandle
– Florida Governor Rick Scott
At least 13 people have died in Central America as Hurricane Michael traveled through the region, and local authorities are now warning Florida panhandle residents to evacuate as it quickly approaches to category three status, which can cause devastating damage when it makes landfall on Wednesday. Alabama and several parts of Georgia arae under a state of emergency. The Carolinas, still in recovery from Hurricane Florence, is set to undergo heavy rains during this time.
