Hurricane Michael looms large: New satellite image shows storm barreling towards Florida as it's expected to reach Category 4 by landfall amid fears it will be the 'worst ever'

  • Hurricane Michael strengthened into a Category 3 storm with wind of up to 150mph on Tuesday
  • It is expected to approach Category 4 strength when it makes landfall in Northern Florida on Wednesday 
  • Michael was located about 235 miles south-southwest of Apalachicola as of 8pm on Tuesday
  • Mandatory evacuation orders went into effect Tuesday for some 120,000 residents and tourists
  • Florida Governor Rick Scott called Michael a 'monstrous hurricane' and declared a state of emergency for 35 Florida counties from the Panhandle to Tampa Bay
  • The governors of Georgia and Alabama have also declared a state of emergency 
  • Forecasters said it could potentially be the most powerful storm to strike the Panhandle in at least a decade 
  • Forecasters have warned that parts of Florida's Big Bend area could see up to 12 feet of storm surge, while Michael also could dump up to a foot of rain over some Panhandle communities as it moves inland 
  • Airports in Pensacola and Destin-Fort Walton Beach have announced they will shut down from midnight
