Category 4 Hurricane Michael Slams Florida & Georgia on Way to Carolinas

HeadlineOct 11, 2018

At least two people have died in the U.S. after Hurricane Michael slammed into Florida and Georgia on Wednesday as a Category 4 storm. With winds topping 155 miles per hour, Michael is the third most powerful storm to ever hit the U.S. mainland. The Carolinas are now bracing for more flooding, just weeks after the region was devastated by Hurricane Florence. While meteorologists said Hurricane Michael was supercharged from the warmer-than-usual water in the Gulf of Mexico, there was almost no mention of global warming on the cable news networks.

Advocacy groups say the Florida Department of Corrections has not evacuated at least a dozen prisons in mandatory evacuation zones as of Wednesday.
