News24xx.com -  The  hurricane Michael slammed into the Florida Panhandle with terrifying winds of 155 mph and makes one person has died.  Michael was the third most powerful hurricane to hit the US mainland.


The hurricane with abnormally waters has fulfill the Gulf of Mexico, in the early afternoon near Mexico Beach, a tourist town about midway along the Panhandle, a 200-mile stretch of white-sand beach resorts, fishing towns and military bases.


And after it ravaged the Panhandle, the hurricane Michael barrelled into south Georgia as a Category 3 hurricane, the most powerful ever recorded for that part of the neighbouring state.


And in north Florida, Michael battered the shoreline with sideways rain, powerful gusts and crashing waves, swamping streets and docks, flattening trees, shredding awnings and peeling away shingles.


It knocked out more than 388,000 homes and businesses. And a Panhandle man was killed by a tree that toppled on a home. But the man was not immediately identified, because damage in Panama City was extensive, with broken and uprooted trees and power lines down nearly everywhere.

Then, the residents emerged in the early evening to assess damage when rains stopped, though skies were still overcast and windy.

In Apalachicola, multiple trees were down, and there’s flooding. Boats on the highway. A house on the highway. Houses that have been there forever are just shattered.


Governor Rick Scott announced soon the aggressive search and rescue efforts would get under way as conditions allowed. 

And he also urged people to stay off debris-littered roads.

Michael was a meteorological brute that sprang quickly from a weekend tropical depression, going from a Category 2 on Tuesday to a Category 4 by the time it came ashore. It was the most powerful hurricane on record to hit the Panhandle. More than 375,000 people up and down the Gulf Coast were urged to evacuate as Michael closed in.
