Key Messages From The NHC

1. Life-threatening storm surge continues along portions of the Florida Panhandle, Big Bend, and Nature Coast. The worst storm surge is expected to continue between Tyndall Air Force Base and Aucilla River, where 5 to 10 feet of inundation is still ongoing.

2. Michael will continue to produce life-threatening hurricane-force winds well inland across portions of the Florida Panhandle, southeast Alabama, and southwestern Georgia this evening as the core of the hurricane continues to move inland.

3. Heavy rainfall from Michael could produce life-threatening flash flooding from the Florida Panhandle and Big Bend region into portions southeast Alabama, Georgia, the Carolinas, and southeast Virginia.

4. Tropical storm conditions will affect portions of the southeast U.S. coast from northeast Florida through North Carolina, and tropical storm warnings are in effect for these areas.
