Folks in Tallahassee Florida are not wasting ANY time preparing for inbound Hurricane Michael; store shelves are already emptying of emergency supplies like water. The storm is forecast to come ashore somewhere on Florida's Panhandle, perhaps near Pensacola.
Computer Models are varying only about the INTENSITY, not the track -- and right now, those models are saying everything from Category 2 thru Category 5 storm strength!
FOLKS IN THE FLORIDA PANHANDLE MUST MAKE EMERGENCY PREPARATIONS RIGHT NOW - DON'T WAIT OR STORES WILL BE SOLD OUT!
Supplies you MUST have:
Emergency Food (Canned Meats/Fish and Dry goods like Rice/Pasta)
Manual Can Opener
Portable Radio for News and Info
SPARE BATTERIES for radios and lights
Extra Medicines needed to live
Computer Models are pretty firm about the storm track:
The storm is absolutely EXPLODING in power as it enters the Gulf of Mexico.
Initial forecasts called for a Category 1 storm, but quickly evolved toward Category 3, with SOME models suggesting a surge in power all the way to Category 5!
There is very little time to prepare for this storm. LANDFALL WEDNESDAY
Tropical-storm-force winds extend outward up to 200 miles (320 km) mainly to the north and east of the center.
PREPARE NOW or Prepare to evacuate.
Florida Gov. Rick Scott announced Sunday that he had declared a state of emergency in 26 counties in the state's Panhandle and Big Bend regions
