HURRICANE Michael is gathering even more strength according to the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) 10am Central Time (4pm BST) public advisory. Here are all the details.

Tue, Oct 9, 2018

The latest NOAA bulletin forecasts “life-threatening storm surge, hurricane force winds and heavy rainfall along the northeastern Gulf Coast.”

Data gathered by a NOAA and Air Force Reserve Hurricane Hunter aircraft show the mammoth storm has increased its maximum winds to 110 mph, and is just about to become a major Category 3 hurricane when winds pick up to 111 mph.

Hurricane Michael is currently churning 360 miles south of Panama City, Florida, and is moving north at 12 mph.

On the forecast track, the centre of Michael will move across the eastern Gulf of Mexico tonight, before moving inland over the Florida Panhandle or Florida Big Bend area on Wednesday, and then move northeastward across the southeastern United States on Wednesday night and Thursday.

A Storm Surge Warning is in effect for:

* Okaloosa/Walton County Line Florida to Anclote River Florida

A Storm Surge Warning means there is a danger of life-threatening inundation from rising water moving inland from the coastline during the next 36 hours.

Residents in these areas should take all necessary actions to protect life and property from rising water and the potential for other dangerous conditions, and follow evacuation orders.
