    Hurricane Michael

    Today



    Hurricane Michael takes aim at 300-mile Gulf Coast target

    This morning
    Hurricane Michael
    is a Category 1 hurricane, but it will strengthen significantly today to become a dangerous Category 3 storm by the time it is expected to hit the Gulf Coast on Wednesday.



    Most projected storm tracks indicate Michael -- with winds of at least 111 mph -- will hit along the Florida Panhandle sometime Wednesday morning.

    More than 100 counties from Mobile, Alabama, through the Florida Panhandle are under a state of emergency, and 1,250 National Guardsmen have been activated for duty.

    After slamming the Gulf Coast, Michael is expected to slog through Georgia and into the Carolinas, parts of which are still reeling from Hurricane Florence.

    So long as it does not stall over land it shouldn't be too much of a problem. During the last several years the media seems to by over hyping these storms. (Not all of them.)

    lol...I wonder how much sympathy resister's going to squeeze out of this one?

    Hope there's no major damage or deaths. The good news is Rick Scott's running for the Senate so he might get off his ass and do something.

    Now the media can claim Hurricane Michael is a historic storm (they jumped the gun earlier).

    It is now a Cat 4 storm and if it hits land as a Cat 4 it will be the strongest storm to hit the Florida panhandle since we kept records of this sort of thing.

    I wonder if Gillium the Democratic candidate for Governor, will sit on his ass like he did when he was mayor of Tallahassee.
    Political tags - such as royalist, communist, democrat, populist, fascist, liberal, conservative, and so forth - are never basic criteria. The human race divides politically into those who want people to be controlled and those who have no such desire.
