Hurricane Michael to Make Landfall in Florida Today

Hurricane Michael will make landfall in Florida today, and it's anticipated to be the strongest storm ever to hit the Florida panhandle, with major storm surges, winds of more than 140mph, and tornadoes embedded in the hurricane.

Georgia is also expected to be seriously affected by the storm, and both states are likely to suffer wind damage, flooding, and loss of electricity. There are, of course, a number of flight disruptions in the region.

The Guardian has ongoing live coverage here.

Officials are now telling folks in the affected areas to stay put if they haven't already evacuated. Travel will now be unsafe, so it's time to hunker down.

Be safe, everyone. ♥
