Preparations continue ahead of the hurricane

One of the hardest-hit spots was Mexico Beach, where Michael crashed ashore Wednesday as a Category 4 monster with 155 miles per hour (250 kph) winds.

"She's my baby", O'Brien said, her face wet with tears.

Warning hurricane / tropical storm was about 30 million people in 6 States: Florida, Alabama, Mississippi, Georgia, South and North Carolina.

Franklin County Sheriff A.J. Smith near the vulnerable coast said his deputies had gone door to door in some places urging people to evacuate.

The storm was on track to make an expected exit into the Atlantic Ocean by Friday morning, with some parts of Virginia and North Carolina expected to see as much as nine inches of rain, bringing the likelihood for risky flooding.

While most homes around him are vacation rentals or summer getaways for their owners, Sadousky had stayed put through more than four decades of storms.

FEMA's Long said he's anxious the number of deaths will rise Thursday.

"Now our job is to search for everybody, rescue everybody, get everybody the resources they need and we'll recover", said Florida Gov. Rick Scott.

In a recent study in the Journal of Climate, researchers found more rapid intensifications in a simulation of a human-warmed world, and also that this would prove a key pathway toward more intense hurricanes in general. They are posting information about recovery efforts, road and bridge openings and the status of evactuaion orders on FloridaDisaster.org. An 80-mile stretch of Interstate 10, the main east-west route along the Panhandle, was closed. The vast majority are in Florida and Georgia. 'It's absolutely horrendous. Catastrophic, ' she said. Four pine trees had crashed through the roof of her apartment, almost hitting two people. Michael as of 5 a.m. was a strong Category 1 hurricane with a minimum pressure of 973 millibars, a measure of atmospheric pressure indicating that air is rising in the storm, pulling in winds toward its center.

Michael's strength may reflect the effect of climate change on storms. Dazed Florida residents picked through the wreckage left by Hurricane Michael on Thursday after the near-record-force storm tore apart coastal towns and was blamed for seven deaths. The hurricane is forecast to hit the Florida Panhandle at a possible category 4 storm.

A few houses and other structures remain standing, but they're the exceptions. Refrigerators and toilets and piles of soggy furniture are strewn across properties.

MEXICO BEACH, FL - OCTOBER 09: Carol Cathey spray paints the words "Calm down Michael" on the plywood over her daughter's business in preparation for the arrival of Hurricane Michael on October 9, 2018 in Mexico Beach, Florida.

In an email sent early Thursday, spokesman Eddie Elmore said the road was closed "due to extremely hazardous conditions".

The email didn't say how long the work was expected to take.

The storm has weakened but continues to travel over the Carolinas to the Atlantic Ocean, bringing with it heavy rains.

At least three deaths were blamed on Michael, the most powerful hurricane to hit the continental U.S. in over 50 years, and it wasn't done yet: Though reduced to a tropical storm, it brought flash flooding to North Carolina and Virginia, soaking areas still recovering from Hurricane Florence. The rains are causing flash flooding across parts of North Carolina and southern Virginia.

Floridians are just beginning to assess the damage left by Hurricane Michael and preparing for a hard period of recovery.

Hurricane Michael has left a wake of destruction after it made landfall in Florida on Wednesday.

Two people, including a child, were killed by falling debris, the United States media reported on Thursday. The wind force in the center at that time had reached 249 km/h.
