Blow Michael has sparked mandatory evacuation of several coastal counties in Florida as the unsafe hurricane is set to make landfall imminently.
Hurricane Michael has intensified significantly exceeding the past 48 hours and is currently projected to smash into the Florida slide as a Category 4 hurricane with winds approaching 150mph.
In a terrifying threat, Florida Governor Rick Scott said deadly storm floods of up to twelve feet could affect areas of Florida which “no one last wishes a survive” if they found themselves caught in their life-threatening tide.
Carl Parker of the Weather Channel set out in grim detail how storm rushes could affect communities across the Florida coastline.
Mr Parker told viewers Mooring St Joe could see 6ft of storm surge flooding but surges may reach as high as 9ft and in the sky.
In St Mark’s, there could be up to 9ft of storm surge flooding which may spread as far as the burgh’s downtown.
Mr Parker explained that at 3ft, cars would begin to get. At nine feet of storm surge flooding he warned residents “liking not be able to get out”.
Mr Parker told viewers: “At 3ft of storm surge flooding, motors begin to float. It’s too late to drive out.
Hurricane Michael: Florida is set to be hit by enormous storm surges of up to 9ft
“Remember, this hose has a lot of power and a lot of force. It’s generally moving very quickly, so you can’t easily cross it.
“By the time it gets up to 6ft, we’re talking about life-threatening storm surge swamping.
“There’s a lot of power in this water, a lot of debris in this water, you’re straight not going to be able to get out of this.
“When the water gets up to 9ft, we’re looking at a tremendous amount of hail surge flooding. The only way you’d be able to survive this if you evacuated vertically if you could get to a bat of an eye level.

“So when emergency managers tell you, you’ve got to get out and you’ve got to evacuate, please pay attention to to them.”
Philip Klotzbach, a meteorologist at Colorado State University, conveyed the predicted intensity of the wind means Hurricane Michael could be proper the most powerful storm to hit Florida since 1975.
He tweeted: “#Michael is currently prophesy by National Hurricane Center (NHC) to have max sustained winds of 125 mph miserly its time of landfall.
“If that were to verify as its landfall intensity, Michael transfer tie w/ Eloise (1975) & Pensacola #Hurricane (1882) for strongest winds for Florida Panhandle landfall on curriculum vitae.”
The monstrous hurricane rapidly intensified Wednesday and is currently packing snakes of over 145mph, making it a strong Category 4 hurricane on the Saffir Simpson Gas Scale.
About 3.7 million people are under hurricane warnings in districts of Florida, southeastern Alabama and southern Georgia.
