Based on data from Hurricane Hunters inside Michael, the storm is continuing to strengthen. The path is little changed from last night.

Wind gusts of 140 mph are possible in the red-brown area near the coast.

At least as dangerous is the extreme storm surge, now expected to reach 13' on top of ten foot waves!
Please follow evacuation orders and get out of if you are ordered to leave.
