Hurricane Michael Lashes Florida With Wind Speeds Among Highest in History

Hurrican Michael at Cat 4 by 2 mi.Hurricane Michael became the strongest storm to hit the U.S. mainland since 1992, and one of the four most intense in history, with winds that reached 155 miles per hour just as it made landfall in Florida.

The wind speed, expected to produce a 14-foot storm surge on the coast, fell just two miles an hour shy of Category 5 status. The swift-moving monster is forecast to drop as much as a foot of rain on the Florida Panhandle before racing north toward Georgia, Alabama and a Carolinas region still recovering from Hurricane Florence.

“A storm like this could be a once-in-a-lifetime event,” said Brett Rathbun, a meteorologist with AccuWeather Inc. in State College, Pennsylvania. “Winds of this intensity can really knock down any tree or structure in its path.”
