Hurricane Michael made landfall near Mexico Beach, FL on October 10 as a Category 4 hurricane with maximum sustained winds of 155 mph. Michael then moved northeast through southwest GA as a hurricane before weakening to a tropical storm before reaching central SC. Tropical storm force winds and several inches of rainfall occurred across much of southeast SC/GA which led to many fallen trees and some power outages.
