Approaching the 11am National Weather Service update on Hurricane Michael, we will get a better picture of the strength of the storm as it makes landfall into today and tonight int he Panhandle.
However, the storm did strengthen overnight and is now a Category 4 Hurricane, making it the strongest ever storm to hit the state of Florida in the 167 years of hurricane recording.

Here's a live look from a surf cam along Panama City Beach, which is usually sugar sandy and filled with tourists, today it's getting battered with high winds and storm surge.
As of 8am Wednesday morning this was the wind already building in Apalachicola, which is on the "Big Bend" of the West Coast along the Gulf.
This video was taken aboard a Royal Caribbean cruise as it has been diverted from port due to Hurricane Michael.
Obviously, we hope all remain safe during this storm, but this was too good not to post "Hurricane Michael is at 'Threat Level Midnight'!"
