Hurricane Michael Makes Landfall On Florida Panhandle Today

A month after Hurricane Florence threatened the East Coast, another storm is threatening to knock out power to thousands: Hurricane Michael. With winds up to 130 mph around it's eye, it was upgraded to Category Three and forecast to go to Category Four. Hurricane warnings are across the Florida panhandle, and tropical storm watches go all the way from the Louisiana border to Tampa. The storm is projected to go northeast, with over half of Georgia having storm warnings, and tropical storm watches extending well into North Carolina.

The storm has the potential to knock out power over a wide area, with the Florida panhandle and southern Georgia hardest hit. But unlike Hurricane Florence, the storm is faster moving and will not linger as long. So power should be restored quicker (though as some friends will tell you, there's always that one block that the power company takes their sweet time). So if you have online friends in this area, they might be offline for a little while.
