Footage from Mexico Beach. Looks like it took the worst of it. PC was just fortunate enough to be on the west part sparing the most populated areas.

Still well-defined eye about to cross I-10. Hopefully no one is trying to drive that stretch of interstate at this point.

That video is incredible. I never thought Iíd see footage like that from a GOM system in October. This thing has looked more like a W. Pacific typhoon. Itís been dealing with much worse conditions than Florence ever did and somehow has come out much stronger.

There is a lot of damage on the far east end of the beach, namely Grand Lagoon and St. Andrews State Park.

Amazing satellite loop as it was making landfall. Look how it grew right up until it hit land. Wow!

30 miles west of Bainsbridge, GA and reports say Michael is STILL a 125mph Cat 3.  Unbelievable how much strength this storm is maintaining over land.

You can see the eye was starting to clear even more just as it hit land. Makes me wonder what this would had done if it was still over open water at that point.

Bret Adair is a certified idiot. If you have not seen his video look it up.

This is the strongest storm to hit Georgia since the 1800s.  It is also the 3rd strongest in USA history beating out Hurricane Katrina for the 3rd place spot.

Michael will likely still right on the CAT 1/2 border when it reaches the Albany area in the next few hours.  Still, have the potential for 95-100MPH gusts all the way up into the area for the next several areas.  I hope everyone in Southwestern GA got out of their mobile homes.

He isnít the only storm chasing idiot today.  A few guys have almost drowned and or nearly killed by debris.
