That said, not every storm is the next Katrina or Harvey, and it’s irresponsible for news agencies to keep trying to make it so. Hyping every storm is exactly why most people don’t evacuate that have the means, because they hear the same schtick with every approaching system. Most people know what to expect from these, and frankly I would have also stayed had I lived in Myrtle Beach once I saw it weakening.

Sorry, but that bugs the horsefeathers out of me.

Isn't the flooding still projected to get worse?

If you live in a low lying area then of course you should evacuate. This is a rain event, not a wind or surge event. If you do not live near rivers or streams in flood plains, this storm is a big inconvenience, nothing more. Not saying that lives and property aren’t affected, just that the hype doesn’t match the reality, and that creates distrust in the media the next time a big one comes.


The media reported what the national weather source said was possible, and they were right. The fear all along was a large storm that would stall out just at shore. It doesn't have to be a 4 or 5 at landfall to wreak havoc. Was Sandy not actually an event that the media should have reported on either? Over a dozen dead so far and counting. Still can't reach much of the affected area. It isn't done.

It's not the medias fault that ignorant morons think they are invincible.

If I'm reading that map right, it's still going to be hurricane strength when it is over mid-Georgia?

Gracious.

Gracious.


It is projected to make landfall at Panama City Beach between noon and 3 p.m. Wednesday, according to Channel 2 Action News.

“It has time to strengthen more and will most likely do so,” Channel 2 meteorologist Karen Minton said.

By the time Michael makes its way into Georgia later Wednesday and into Thursday, it will likely still be “a very strong hurricane,” she said.

Tropical storm-force winds are expected as Michael makes its trek across Middle Georgia just south of metro Atlanta.

A tropical storm warning has been expanded to include seven North Georgia counties, according to Channel 2. Upson, Lamar, Jasper, Putnam, Morgan, Greene and Oglethorpe counties could experience winds of 40-50 mph.
