Major Hurricane Michael Upgraded
« on: April 19, 2019, 07:26:26 PM »
Michael was upgraded from a Category Four to a Category Five hurricane today by the NHC post analysis. The last category five hurricane to strike the US was Andrew back in August 1992.

Historical records Michael broke....
-Latest Category 5 hurricane to hit the US.
-4th strongest hurricane to hit the US, trailing only behind the Labor Day 1935 hurricane, Camille (1969), and Andrew (1992).
-3rd hurricane to hit Florida as a Category Five.

Here's a historic record broken that you left out: 1st Category 5 ever to strike the panhandle portion of the state (FL).

This is very interesting news. With Matthew being nearly three years ago, itís strange that they would make such a decision.

Matthew was nothing compared to Michael. All those statements Bryan Norcross made about it being a historic storm, denying he was hyping it, was based on hindsight. Matthew produced coastal flooding along Florida's east coast but was nowhere near what Norcross said it would be. Michael caused massive devastation.
