The National Weather Service in Tallahassee called Michael "a potentially catastrophic storm" and added, "Preparations should be completed no later than Tuesday morning".

Unlike Florence, the storm is expected to move through the state quickly, leaving conditions to improve on Friday. A northward motion is expected through tonight, followed by a northeastward motion on Wednesday and Thursday. The storm will then move across the eastern Gulf of Mexico later Tuesday into the night.

"Hurricane Michael is forecast to be the most destructive storm to hit the Florida Panhandle in decades", Gov. Rick Scott said.

A fast and furious Hurricane Michael sped toward the Florida Panhandle on Tuesday night with 130 miles per hour winds and a potential storm surge of 13 feet, giving tens of thousands of people precious little time to get out or board up. Hurricane-force winds extended up to 45 miles (75 kilometers) from Michael's center.

"The combination of a risky storm surge and the tide will cause normally dry areas near the coast to be flooded by rising waters moving inland from the shoreline", the NHC said.

There was no change in the watches and warnings lineup from the previous advisory.

Warning Coordination Meteorologist Nick Petro with the National Weather Service Office in Raleigh says Michael will be a wind and rain event locally, with the possibility for gusty winds and 3-5 inches of rainfall.

Alabama Gov. Kay Ivey issued a statewide state of emergency, saying on Twitter it was "in anticipation of wide-spread power outages, wind damage and debris produced by high winds & heavy rain associated with Hurricane Michael".
