'Monstrous' Hurricane Michael closing in on Florida with 110 mph winds
Hurricane Michael is closing in on the Florida Panhandle, forecast to make landfall as a "monstrous" Category 3 storm with a dangerous storm surge of up to 12 feet, officials said.
"You cannot hide from storm surge," Florida Gov. Rick Scott warned at a news conference Tuesday. "We can rebuild your house, but we cannot rebuild your life."
"If you have 6 feet of storm surge, you're out the middle of it, I don't know how you're going to survive," Scott said.
"This storm can kill you," Scott said. "You need to evacuate if you're ordered to do so."
