ALERT !! ALERT!! MICHAEL NOW CATEGORY 5 HURRICANE... LIKELY TO BE THE STRONGEST HURRICANE TO EVER HIT FL PANHANDLE.. now very close to category 5 ...MSLP down to 915 mb ... winfs to 160 mph ...only 4 other Hurricanes that have struck the US have been stronger .. he says waiting for the nhc to make it official...

The strongest hurricanes to make landfall on the Florida Panhandle did so with 110 kt (125 mph) maximum sustained winds. Barring an improbable substantial weakening, Michael will easily be the strongest such storm.

Near perfectly symmetrical eye!  Quite the sight on satellite.  There should be some amazing observations in the calm eye.  Hopefully everybody stays safe!

Water rise is happening very quickly as well. Here's the full 1pm EST statement.

With the landfall of Michael's eye imminent, everyone in the

of the eye, as hazardous winds will increase very quickly as the eye
passes!

A weather station at the Gulf County Emergency Operations Center in
Port St. Joe recently reported a wind gust of 106 mph (171 km/h).
A Weatherflow station is St. Andrew Bay recently reported a
sustained wind of 62 mph (100 km/h) and a wind gust of 77 mph (124
km/h). The Apalachicola airport recently reported sustained winds
of 63 mph (102 km/h) with a gust of 89 mph (143 km/h).

Water levels continue to rise quickly along the coast of the Florida
Panhandle. A National Ocean Service water level station at
Apalachicola recently reported over 6.5 feet of inundation above
ground level.

There was a 121 kt unflagged SFMR in the SW eyewall on that pass, Panama City is still in dire straits.

That quadrant has been putting out some serious winds all morning and convection is still very healthy on the southern semi-circle. This isn't the typical "half-a-cane" we're used to seeing. It will certainly still be front-loaded in terms of rainfall, but that back eyewall is going to be a nasty surprise for anyone having to endure it.
