    We're getting a huge amount of rain now, its been steadily pouring down hard for over an hour, I haven't left my house today...I cannot get in touch with my friends in Wilmington NC, my calls didn't go through, they lost power again late last night and their area is flooded...

    Mass evacuations ordered as 'monstrous' Hurricane Michael strengthens to a Category 2 amid fears it will be the 'worst ever' when it strikes parts of Florida tonight with 111 mph winds

    Mass evacuations have been ordered as a 'monstrous' Hurricane Michael strengthened into a Category 2 storm with top wind speeds of 100 mph as it continued to intensify on its path toward the Florida Panhandle. Michael was located about 395 miles south of Panama City, Florida as of 8am on Tuesday with authorities warning the 'serious and life-threatening' storm could slam ashore early Wednesday.

    Mandatory evacuation orders went into effect Tuesday morning for some 120,000 people in Panama City Beach and across other low-lying parts of the coast as the hurricane approaches. Florida Governor Rick Scott called Michael a 'monstrous hurricane' with a devastating potential from high winds, storm surge and heavy rains. He declared a state of emergency for 35 Florida counties, from the Panhandle to Tampa Bay, and activated hundreds of Florida National Guard members and waived tolls to encourage evacuations. Forecaster have warned that parts of Florida's Big Bend area could see up to 12 feet of storm surge, while Michael also could dump up to a foot of rain over some Panhandle communities as it moves inland.
