Two, including a child, killed in Hurricane Michael; Florida witnesses 'worst' storm

"It came out of nowhere and really intensified rapidly". Downgraded to a tropical storm over south Georgia, it was weakening by the hour. "It had the pedal to the metal all the way until it hit the coast", he said.

SAINT MARKS, FL - OCTOBER 10: The Cooter Stew Cafe starts taking water in the town of Saint Marks as Hurricane Michael pushes the storm surge up the Wakulla and Saint Marks Rivers which come together here on October 10, 2018 in Saint Marks, Florida.

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 unsafe flooding.

By the time it hits Florida the winds will be at category three, hitting speeds of 111mph to 129mph.

Those interested in watching the storm from afar can access live cameras from various beaches around Florida, according to Mashable. There is evidence of higher sea surface temperature and atmospheric moisture.

Warm water is "basically the battery for, the fuel, that hurricanes feed off of", said Jennifer Francis, a professor of atmospheric sciences at Rutgers University's department of marine and coastal sciences. "Everyone in these areas is reminded not to venture out into the relative calm of the eye, as hazardous winds will increase very quickly as the eye passes!" the NHC said in a warning at 2 p.m.

Climate scientists have begun to focus on hurricane rapid intensification as an increasingly prevalent feature in the world we're entering.

Many flights were canceled in the hurricane zone, and Amtrak changed some train schedules to protect passengers and employees. But without extensive study, they can not directly link a single weather event to the changing climate.

Harvey and Michael didn't strengthen quite so much, so fast, but they rapidly intensified in the crucial hours before making their final continental USA landfalls. Modern models predicting warming have been borne out in thousands of studies showing phenomena like rising ocean temperatures and shrinking glaciers.

"You will see damage to infrastructure, you will see power outages, and services that we are used to will be interrupted due to Hurricane Michael", he said.

It is the third-most-powerful storm on record to hit the US, and the worst in almost 50 years, since Hurricane Camille in 1969.

The wanderings of hurricanes vary widely, steered by wind currents and high- and low-pressure systems; some storms race across oceans and land while others dawdle. Usually by this time in the Atlantic accounts for about 5 hurricanes.

But Michael's quick progress means it won't have a chance to trigger the same widespread, epic flooding as past slow-moving hurricanes such as Florence and Harvey, which unleashed seemingly endless rains after stalling and hovering inland. The storm is now moving at 21 miles per hour.

Authorities said a falling tree killed a man outside Tallahassee, Florida, and an 11-year-old girl in Georgia was killed when the winds picked up a carport and dropped it on her home.

On its current track, the core of Michael is expected to move northeastward across the southeastern USA on Wednesday night and Thursday, and then move off the Mid-Atlantic coast away from the United States on Friday.

FEMA is already on the ground in Florida; other federal agencies are also preparing to assist people in the storm's path.

More than 5,000 people were in 34 shelters that have been opened across the region. At a morning briefing, state officials said 400,000 in Florida remained without power.

Still, he said, "the idea that hurricanes are going to stay exactly the same seems far-fetched".

"We have a massive flow of search and rescue, Highway Patrol, National Guard, utility workers, pushing their way down to these impacted areas", the governor said.
