Waves crash along a pier as Hurricane Michael approaches Panama City Beach, Florida, U.S. October 10, 2018.

The Florida Governor has said the state is "100 per cent ready" to face the might of Michael. They said it's still not clear how many people stayed put and would need to be rescued. It is expected to weaken as it moves up into the southeastern United States.

"I know people are worn out from Florence, but don't let this storm catch you with your guard down", North Carolina Gov. Roy Cooper said, adding, "A number of homes have rooftop tarps that could be damaged or blown away with this wind". Becker said about 55 people were in the shelters early Thursday.

Almost 370,000 people were left without power, mostly in Florida, but also Alabama and Georgia, news reports said.

"As Hurricane Michael nears landfall, we are working with state and local officials in Florida to take all necessary precautions", Trump said Monday.

In Panama City, plywood and metal flew off the front of a Holiday Inn Express.

Crews were out early Thursday searching for more victims. "Take care of them", he said. They're also trying to figure out the extent of damage to roads and bridges. His office said he would tour the devastated areas next week.

Past year saw a string of catastrophic storms batter the western Atlantic - including Irma, Maria and Hurricane Harvey - causing a record-equaling $125 billion in damage when it flooded the Houston metropolitan area. Michael is an upper-level category 4 hurricane.

He said strong winds picked up a portable carport Wednesday and dropped it down on the roof.

In Seminole County, Georgia, a metal carport hoisted by the wind crashed through a roof, hitting the girl's head, the county's emergency management director. Alabama Gov. Kay Ivey said she fears widespread power outages and other problems would follow.

"It looks like a tornado came through here", he said.

It made landfall northwest of Mexico Beach, Fla., on Wednesday afternoon as a Category 4 hurricane on the five-step Saffir-Simpson wind scale. The storm's maximum sustained winds have decreased to 50 miles per hour (80 kph) and it was moving to the northeast at 21 miles per hour (33 kph).

In large areas of Mexico Beach, homes were obliterated or reduced to stacks of rubble, aerial video from CNN showed on Thursday. Another man was shining a flashlight from his balcony as alarms sounded and fires burned.

Each line is a different forecast model projection for the track of Michael later this week.

Terrifying storm surges of up to 12ft (3.6m) could also crash along the Florida Panhandle. They say these regions can expect eight to 12 feet of storm surge. A Tropical Storm Watch is in effect for Chassahowitzka to Anna Maria Island Florida, including Tampa Bay, the Mississippi/Alabama border to the Mouth of the Pearl River and from Fernandina Beach, Florida to South Santee River, South Carolina.

Michael also could dump up to a foot (30 centimeters) of rain over some Panhandle communities before it moves over Alabama, Georgia, the Carolinas and Virginia Wednesday night and Thursday.

Across the Panhandle, roaring winds splintered trees and rooftops.

Hurricane Michael's rapid intensification as it speeds towards Florida's Panhandle has left residents scrambling Tuesday to make final preparations before the storm closes in - and officials warn the storm could grow even stronger in the hours before landfall.

Fox News also confirmed that an 11-year-old girl in Seminole County, Georgia, was killed Wednesday afternoon when thrashing winds sent a auto or boat port airborne onto the family's mobile home.

The supercharged storm crashed ashore Wednesday afternoon amid beach resorts and coastal communities, a Category 4 monster packing 155 miles per hour (250 kph) winds.
