Hurricane Michael is closing on Florida with life-threatening 145mph winds, rainfall and storm surge.

Michael is expected to make landfall on Wednesday afternoon local time pushing water levels as high as 14 feet (4.3 metres) above sea level.

A NOAA spokesman said the hurricane had the potential to be “historical” in its impact.

He said: “It’s important to not focus just on the core of the storm.

“This is a huge storm, we are looking at a 200-mile wind spread from the centre so tropical-storm force winds will be pulling out into portions of Alabama, even into portions of central Florida.

This is going to be a devastating storm, possibly historical.”

More than 2.1 million residents across 20 Florida counties are under mandatory or voluntary evacuations.

But residents in Georgia are also at severe risk of life-threatening conditions, warned Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) boss Brock Long.

He said: “The citizens in Georgia need to wake up and pay attention.

“Bottom line this is going to be the worst storm that southwest Georgia and central Georgia has seen in many, many decades, if not the worst storm the state has seen.

“And its going to pass through and impact numerous counties, the vegetation is there, bringing down trees, bringing down power lines with them.

“They need to prepare, not only Florida but also Georgia, need to be prepared to see the power off for more multiple weeks as this system pushes through.
