Yes and I want to say this was only it’s 2nd cycle on the list or maybe even 1st

It's actually been in there since they added male names (Michael was first up in 1982), and either never made it to the name or was too inconsequential to retire.

I have no memory of it in 12, 06, 00, or 94 at all

Wonder how much that robust WAR played into this?


.

a lot, no offshore flow along Gulf Coast yet this fall has meant no upwelling of cooler water, and of course SSTs much above normal everywhere

Radar data indicate that the eye of Michael is now moving inland
over portions of Jackson County in the Florida Panhandle and is
nearing Interstate 10. Everyone in these areas is reminded not to

Tallahassee International Airport: 71 mph (115 km/h)
Donalsonville Georgia: 67 mph (107 km/h)
Downtown Tallahassee: 63 mph (101 km/h)

Dangerous storm surge continues along the coast of the Florida
Panhandle. A National Ocean Service water level station at
Apalachicola is still reporting over 7 feet of inundation above
ground level.

Any reports out of Panama City proper (not Panama City Beach) and/or areas east of there? They were in the western eyewall for almost the entire time!

A lot of damage in the Grand Lagoon area on the far east end.

As some others have been saying, given the decent movement speed of Michael combined with the fact it was strengthening upon landfall and how well he is holding together, there is going to be significant wind damage inland.

I believe those are invasive Australian pines.. Really crappy tree compared to native trees in FL in terms of wind handling.  They don't stand a chance in a storm like that.

Correct me if I am wrong, but wasn't the town water tower next to that cell tower in the back of this photo?

Those are actually either Slash Pine or Longleaf Pine. Australian Pine can not live in the Panhandle because of the colder temps.

The man whose house Brett Adair took shelter in was watching Brett on Facebook. The owner had evacuated, boarded up his house and is interviewed here -

It also includes a link to Brett's entire video:

The owner was trying so hard not to say Adair, "broke into my house"

He doesn’t seem very happy. Seems like his thinking was “I boarded up my home and left like I was supposed too but you stayed and broke the seal on the home I spent so much time boarding up.” Understandable
