One dead after Hurricane Michael slams into Florida Panhandle

09:00 UTC shows Hurricane Michael off the US Gulf Coast.- Hurricane Michael closed in on Florida's Gulf Coast

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

Michael is moving across southwestern Georgia with damaging winds across the central and eastern Panhandle of Florida as well as southwestern and south-central Georgia, with storm flooding still occurring along the Gulf Coast, the NHC said.

Hurricane Michael will also cause almost one million people to be without power, not just on the coast but inland as well in Alabama, Florida, and Georgia.

And some roads may also be blocked by downed power lines. Only the 1935 storm and Camille had lower pressures, Mr. Klotzbach said. "We thought the windows were going to break at any time", Beu said.

Before the sun went down and the skies turned midnight blue, those in the path of Hurricane Michael shared glimpses of what some say is the worst hurricane damage they've seen.

As of 2 am EDT Thursday, Michael was about 25 miles east of Macon, Georgia, packing maximum sustained winds of 60 mph.

Television news footage earlier in the day showed floodwaters up to the roofs of many homes in Mexico Beach.

She said the incident was "debris-related". That sort of timetable can make evacuations more hard to manage.

President Donald Trump has since approved an emergency declaration for Florida, permitting the federal government to provide resources and aid during Hurricane Michael.

Myrtle Beach, which is still recovering from the devastation of Hurricane Florence, is predicted to experience 46 miles per hour winds - the most powerful gusts in the Palmetto State.

Around 375,000 people were under either mandatory or voluntary evacuation orders across 18 counties in Florida in preparation of the storm, and a state of emergency had been declared in 35 counties prior to the storm making landfall.

"This happened so quickly", he said.

The Carolinas are still recovering from Hurricane Florence, which left dozens dead and is estimated to have caused billions of dollars in damage last month.

Previous year saw a string of catastrophic storms batter the western Atlantic - including Irma, Maria and Harvey, which caused a record-equalling US$125 billion in damage when it flooded the Houston metropolitan area.

A child was killed in Seminole County, Georgia during the storm, emergency management officials said.

More than 17,000 people tuned into the broadcast, including Sen. It was heading north-northeast at 14 miles per hour (22 kph) with maximum sustained winds down to 150 miles per hour, the hurricane center said.

Characterized by strong winds and heavy rainfall, the hurricane of 1930 caused severe damage to the Dominican Republic.
