Latest Updates on Hurricane Sergio, Michael, Tropical Storm Leslie

Tracking Michael What You Need to Know

At 11 a.m. Michael was about 50 miles south of the western tip of Cuba with maximum sustained winds of 75 mph.

Alabama and Georgia - along with waterlogged North and SC - remain very much in the path of this system over the coming week.

The current forecast would bring Michael into the region as a moderate to strong tropical storm.

Chief Meteorologist Brad Panovich said anywhere from Panama City to Cedar Key, Florida could see significant storm surge from Hurricane Michael. Meanwhile hurricane watches are already in effect for the gulf coast from the Alabama-Florida border all the way to the Suwannee River in Dixie County, Florida. The center of the storm is then expected to move across Georgia as a tropical storm, before moving across the Carolinas and southeast Virginia before going back out to sea by next weekend.

"This storm will be life-threatening and extremely risky", Scott said Sunday following a briefing at the State Emergency Operations Center.

It is expected to become a Category 3 major hurricane by the time it makes landfall somewhere in northwest Florida. NNE OR 20 DEGREES AT 3 miles per hour...6 KM/H MINIMUM CENTRAL PRESSURE...999 MB...29.50 INCHES WATCHES AND WARNINGS ------- CHANGES WITH THIS ADVISORY: None SUMMARY OF WATCHES AND WARNINGS IN EFFECT: A Tropical Storm Warning is in effect for... The storm's tropical storm-force winds extended 175 miles from its center, according to the weather center.

The governor warns that storm surge could be as high as 8-10 feet (2.4-3 meters) in some parts of the Panhandle and 2-4 feet (0.6-1.2 meters) in the Tampa Bay area.

Gov. Rick Scott visited Pasco County on Monday and begged residents to prepare as Hurricane Michael built steam heading toward Florida's Gulf Coast. In Charlotte, Panovich said the European model shows the storm slowing down and could have a bigger impact than other long-range models.

In the past, Columbia County has experienced flooding from tropical storms and hurricanes in the Gulf. Locally ordered evacuations of thousands of homes have begun, with 1,250 National Guard soldiers aiding the process and over 4,000 troops on standby, Scott tweeted.

"Areas hit hard by Florence may face disruptions to ongoing cleanup efforts or renewed flooding depending on the track of the storm", an update from AccuWeather warned. Michael is forecast to intensify as it tracks into the Gulf of Mexico and threaten the northeastern Gulf Coast by Wednesday, and could reach category three status.

"Additional strengthening is forecast, and Michael is expected to become a hurricane later today".

The NHC has forecast that Michael is slated to strengthen and will bring heavy rains, damaging winds, and storm surge.
