Governor Scott declares state of emergency

Potential Tropical Cyclone Could Hit The US This Week Potential Tropical Cyclone Could Hit The US This Week

Governor Rick Scott issued an executive order on Sunday declaring a state of emergency in the Florida Panhandle and Big Bend as the state braces for Michael, his office said.

Speaking Monday to the International Association of Chiefs of Police convention in Orlando, Trump urged residents to heed local warnings and pledged the federal government's support.

High winds weren't the only danger.

The National Hurricane Center's 5 p.m. advisory noted Michael is presently a tropical storm but is expected to strengthen into a hurricane during the next 24-36 hours.

Florida's governor mobilized National Guard troops and ordered Gulf Coast residents to head inland or get ready to evacuate as Hurricane Michael churned toward shore on Monday, with the storm forecast to strengthen rapidly before making landfall on Wednesday.

If you do catch a flu after being vaccinated, it is likely to be much milder and shorter lived than it would have otherwise been. Doctors and nurses are asking people to get the vaccine soon, to ensure that the body builds up defenses to fight the virus.

"Strengthening is forecast during the next several days", the hurricane center said.

At 100 a.m. CDT (0600 UTC), radar data from Belize indicated that the low pressure system was centered near latitude 18.4 north, longitude 87.1 west.

Michael, which formed near the Yucatan Peninsula on Sunday, is expected to dump 4 to 8 inches of rain - and as much as 12 inches in some areas - on western Cuba before it hits the United States. "There's nothing between us and this storm but warm water and I think that's what terrifies us about the potential impacts". That came after the two clashed in 2016 about the city's response to Hurricane Hermine. Ann Beaver was among the three-quarters of city residents who lost power after that storm. A lot of seaweed was washing on to shore, she said, and the county started closing beach ramps to driving earlier because of the high tide.

"Everybody's got to get ready", Scott said during the news conference at the state Emergency Operations Center in Tallahassee.

"If you decide to stay in your home and a tree falls on your house or the storm surge catches you and you're now calling for help, there's no one that can respond to help you", Morgan said.

Tropical sStorm Michael is moving north at around 7mph as of 5am EST. A precise point is challenging to make, but this does not minimize the ongoing threat in our local region regarding heavy rain, gusty winds exceeding tropical storm force, significant coastal storm surge throughout the Big Bend shores, and possible brief but quick-moving and quick-forming tornadoes.

"Isolated maximum amounts of 12 inches are possible in western Cuba", the hurricane center said.
