Monster Hurricane Michael from 2018 gets late upgrade to category 5 storm

Post-mortem upgrade Hurricane Michael now Category 5 storm

Hurricane Michael retroactively upgraded to a Category 5 storm at landfall

It brought storm surge flooding elsewhere in Florida, as well as along portions of the North Carolina and Virginia coasts.

In addition to Hurricanes Michael and Andrew, the only other Category 5 storms known to have made landfall in the USA are the Labor Day Hurricane that hit the Florida Keys in 1935 and Hurricane Camille, which ravaged the MS coast in 1969.

Michael also produced at least 16 tornadoes, though they caused only minor damage.

The meteorologists used flight level data that was not available in real-time, subjective analysis of nearby Doppler radar data, barometric pressure and satellite imagery to determine the revised maximum sustained wind speed at landfall.

He added: "I just think that it just shows how ridiculous the coverage has become, and "PieGate" certainly should be over". But while the report makes clear that she was lying, Sanders never admitted to that.

According to NOAA, Category 5 winds were likely experienced over a small area, and the change is of little practical significance.

And, according to a new report from the National Hurricane Center, it appears they got it. Another 43 deaths in Florida were associated indirectly with Michael: falls during cleanup after the storm, medical issues made worse by it, and traffic accidents.

In Mexico Beach, 1,584 of the town's 1,692 buildings were reported damaged; more than 800 were destroyed.

The state's agriculture industry also suffered about $3 billion in losses due to the storm.

Jacob deGrom headed for MRI on pitching elbow
He started for the Mets that day and took the loss after giving up five runs over three innings against the Tampa Bay Rays. New York Mets ace Jacob deGrom doesn't think his recent elbow issue is anything serious, according to Steve Gelbs of SNY .

"You still ride through our city and it's depressing", Cathey said.

Michael was one of eight hurricanes to form in the Atlantic Basin in 2018 and one of two (along with Hurricane Florence) to develop into a major storm. "We need some help here".

The Hurricane Center notes that Michael now ranks as the fourth-strongest hurricane on record to make landfall in the United States, trailing only the Labor Day Hurricane of 1935, Hurricane Camille in 1969, and Hurricane Andrew in 1992.

This makes the storm the first category 5 hurricane to make landfall in the United States since 1992's Hurricane Andrew.

Flames exit playoffs after loss in Game 5 to Colorado
Despite the Avalanche's surge, they weren't exactly a trendy pick to spring an upset on a Flames squad that amassed 107 points. For the first time, the sea of red inside the arena on the Stampede Grounds had something substantive to cheer about.

Camille in 1969 along the Mississippi Gulf Coast and the Florida Keys Labor Day Hurricane in 1935 were the only other U.S. Category 5 landfalls on record.
