Florida Governor Rick Scott declared a state of emergency in more than 20 counties throughout the state in preparation for possible evacuation orders. Hurricane Michael is expected to make landfall on Wednesday and is getting stronger as it travels over warm waters in the Gulf Coast. The hurricane will bring about 12 inches of rain to Florida and a further 2-3 in North Carolina, where high ground saturation levels means the rain could result in more flash flooding. Officials have warned the hurricane has potential to become deadly.
