Just moments ago, Hurricane Michael made landfall along the Florida panhandle near Mexico Beach.

The storm, which is classified as a Category 4 Hurricane, hit Mexico Beach with 155 mile per hour winds.

If it had hit with 157 mile per hour winds, it would have been classified as a Category 5 storm.

Several news crews are tracking conditions related to the storm on social media, however, several TV and Radio stations have lost their ability to broadcast on air.

Unlike Hurricane Florence, Michael, while delivering a stronger punch initially, will not linger in the area, rather it is expected to be a fast moving storm and will move through Georgia and the Carolinas tonight and tomorrow.
