Hurricane Michael Leaves 1 Dead As It Moves Over Land

At least one person is dead and hundreds of thousands of homes are without power after Hurricane Michael made landfall on the Florida Panhandle Wednesday afternoon with 155 mph winds.

 

Michael began dashing homes into pieces and flooding neighborhoods shortly after crossing near Mexico Beach as a Category 4 storm.

 

It was the strongest storm to hit the continental US since Hurricane Andrew in 1992.

 

Now a Category 2 storm with winds up to 100 mph, the storm is moving into extreme southeastern Alabama and southwest Georgia, bringing life-threatening storm surge and catastrophic winds.
