Tropical Storm Michael Could Hit Gulf Coast as Hurricane
If you know some folks who are spending Fall Break vacationing in the Gulf Coast, you'll want to make them aware that it may not be much of a vacation at all. The National Weather Service has upgraded Tropical Depression #14 to Tropical Storm Michael. And, now, forecasters believe that storm will intensify into a hurricane before it hits the Gulf Coast mid-week.
As you can imagine, we have lots of folks from the WBKR listening area vacation in and around the Gulf Coast. Many left this weekend to get a jump start on their Fall Break celebrations. But, Mother Nature could be bringing them an unexpected surprise.
According to 10News WTSP, Florida Governor Scott plans to declare a State of Emergency in advance of the storm.
