About 3,500 Florida National Guard troops were deployed to assist with evacuations and storm recovery, along with more than 1,000 search-and-rescue personnel, Governor Rick Scott said.

At 11 a.m., the core of extremely unsafe Hurricane Michael was closing in on the Florida Panhandle in the area of Panama City. Add Hurricane Michael as an interest to stay up to date on the latest Hurricane Michael news, video, and analysis from ABC News.

Upon making landfall near Mexico Beach, Florida, Michael was moving at 14 miles per hour ― more than double Florence's speed at landfall.

The storm came ashore as a category 4 hurricane on the five-step Saffir-Simpson wind scale, before it was downgraded to a category 3.

Forecasters said it would unleash damaging wind and rain all the way into the Carolinas, which are still recovering from Hurricane Florence's epic flooding. But the fast-moving, fast-strengthening storm didn't give people much time to prepare, and emergency authorities lamented that many ignored the warnings and seemed to think they could ride it out.

"The emergency declaration is effective for seven days and makes all state resources available to local governments and entities within the impacted area of the hurricane", his office said. "I didn't expect all this", he said.

"What you're going to see is a storm moving very rapidly through Georgia, and it will maintain hurricane strength through southwest Georgia and central Georgia as it passes through later today and early tomorrow", a representative for FEMA's told Good Morning America.

The evacuation order remains in effect until further notice. He acknowledged that a lot of the residents in the area were poor and said it was probably tough to leave. According to The Weather Channel, no Category 4 hurricane in historical records dating back to 1851 has ever made landfall in the region.

The storm is moving north-northeast at 16 miles per hour and is likely to remain a strong hurricane through Wednesday night as the system is expected to move through parts of Georgia and into the Carolinas.
