The Federal Emergency Management Agency has told residents of the Florida Panhandle there are only 90 minutes remaining for them to evacuate to avoid possible DEATH from Hurricane Michael.

11:30 AM EDT -- Now too late to evacuate

The storm is now a Category 4 storm - the first Cat 4 to ever strike Florida's panhandle since record-keeping began in the year 1851, with 145 MPH SUSTAINED winds, and gusts to 165 MPH

STRUCTURES ALREADY COLLAPSING IN FLORIDA - VIDEO - SEE BOTTOM  12:00 Noon EDT

Winds of that speed will slowly rip pieces off from roofs and walls until those roofs and walls breach.  Once a breach takes place, wind will rush into the structure and blow it apart.

Storm Surge of 13 feet above dry land is now forecast for some areas.  Houses and commercial buildings will be knocked off their foundations and destroyed by the thrashing waters.  

Survival is unlikely for person who choose to remain rather than evacuate.

WAVE HEIGHTS 

 

National Hurricane Center Director Ken Graham is warning that a Category 4 hurricane will bring catastrophic damage to Florida’s Panhandle.

Graham says Michael’s top winds of 145 mph (230 kph) are powerful enough to peel off roofs and cause the “complete destruction of houses.”

 

UPDATE 11:21 AM EDT --

Extreme wind warning for winds over 130mph in Bay county and other areas nearby, wow

 

*** BULLETIN ****

11:30 AM EDT --

NOW TOO LATE TO EVACUATE IF YOU ARE NOT ALREADY ON YOUR WAY

 

Storm Hunter Aircraft have just recorded wind speed of 137 KNOTS -- 157.6 MPH -- in the southeast quadrant of the storm.   Even steel-reinforced concrete structures cannot survive winds of that speed for long.  All homes and businesses impacted by such winds will be completely destroyed.  See below:

 

As of 11: 30 AM EDT -- 30 to 45 minutes for Andrew-like winds to strike Florida's Gulf coast.

 

 

 

The station at Apalachicola, FL has unofficially measured a new record high water level (storm surge) of 6.71 feet, breaking the previous record of 6.43 feet from July 10, 2005.

 UPDATE 12:31 EDT --

From the National Hurricane Center, definitions of Category 4 and Category 5 Hurricanes:

4
(major) 130-156 mph
113-136 kt
209-251 km/h Catastrophic damage will occur: Well-built framed homes can sustain severe damage with loss of most of the roof structure and/or some exterior walls. Most trees will be snapped or uprooted and power poles downed. Fallen trees and power poles will isolate residential areas. Power outages will last weeks to possibly months. Most of the area will be uninhabitable for weeks or months.
5
(major) 157 mph or higher
137 kt or higher
252 km/h or higher Catastrophic damage will occur: A high percentage of framed homes will be destroyed, with total roof failure and wall collapse. Fallen trees and power poles will isolate residential areas. Power outages will last for weeks to possibly months. Most of the area will be uninhabitable for weeks or months.

VIDEO - MAJOR DAMAGE HAPPENING NOW:

 

STORM SURGE ARRIVING

 

"Beyond uncharted territory for the Florida Panhandle. Michael continuing to deepen in its final hours before landfall. Pressure likely 918-919 mb

This would make Michael the third-strongest hurricane on record--by pressure--to hit the United States, eclipsing Katrina 2005 and Maria 2017.

 

UPDATE 1:36 PM EDT --

LANDFALL!  MAX SUSTAINED WINDS: 155 MPH, GUSTING TO 208 MPH

    The wind speeds you are stating must not be surface speeds, and those are the only ones that count because that's what impacts the buildings on the ground. The highest wind speeds I can find currently are about 60 mph. Those can do damage but nothing like 150 mph could.

    Here's a wind map:

    Under 8 years of the Obama presidency, there were no major storms- not one.
    Under the Trump presidency, there have been 5 catastrophic storms in well under 2 years. This is obvious weather manipulation, be it HAARP or other technology. "They" are pulling out all the stops.

      I don't think that the 'they' you speak of are the 'they' that is really the cause. As the scriptures and multiple prophecies have fortold-"wars and rumors of wars...famines and persilences, and earthquakes...are the beginning of sorrows. If this is the beginnings of Judgements, then the wildfires and hurricanes are only the beginning. I think that it may get a whole lot worse and fairly soon. Get your preps in order and start with your own life and heart.

    This will be a great time for the American church to respond with tangible expressions of compassion to address the monumental needs that will arise in the storm's aftermath.

    Wonder if the mega-churches are going to hold onto their millions of dollars or put it to work. Thinking that they will continue to be irrelevant to attending to the plight of everyday people. However, the small, authentic churches surely will step up...the ones where the ministers actually do help people during their 'storms' of life.

      Michael isn't Jesus Christ. Michael bends the knee to Christ.

        Y'all get with the Program... Archangel "Michael" is a Pseudonym for Christ. Helloooo!!!???
        -------------------------------------

        Rev. 12 7-9

        7 Then war broke out in heaven. Michael and his angels fought against the dragon, and the dragon and his angels fought back.
        8 But he was not strong enough, and they lost their place in heaven.
        9 The great dragon was hurled down—that ancient serpent called the devil, or Satan, who leads the whole world astray. He was hurled to the earth, and his angels with him.
        --------------------------------------------


        Who do you think the "Michael" in the Michael and His Angels fought is???


        ...dont ya just hate it when people dont know what theyre talking about?

    God has been warning beforehand about all of the recent Hurricanes beginning with the one in Houston that happened last year right after the Eclipse. He has said that these are judgments. He is now warning about a world wide earthquake that will be followed by three days of darkness. See hearthelordjesus.com to read the warnings from several prophets about all that is now upon us. He told Glynda Lomax yesteday that WW3 is very close!

    People who build so closed to the beach should also be responsible for the costs incurred in cleaning up the beach from all the debris in proportion to the size of their structures.

      Agree. People who choose to live in high-risk areas should absorb the expense of such poor-choice decision-making.

    Westbound lanes on Highway 98 on Okaloosa Island are taking on water, but so far (minutes ago) traffic is still moving. Brooks Bridge still remains open, but water levels remain very high, and getting higher as Michael is only 60 miles out to sea.


    First responders are all over Okaloosa Island.....checking on people who stayed in their condos. The sound of sirens is eerie amid the darkening skies and greenish look to the atmosphere.


    Winds are picking up with strong gusts increasing, and coming straight down from the North.
