Tornado watches are expected later on Wednesday Oct. 10 with the landfall of Hurricane Michael, according to the National Weather Service Jacksonville.

“Landfalling major hurricanes are known to produce tornadoes, sometimes numerous ones,” the NWS said.

As the outer bands of Hurricane Michael spread across Northeast Florida and Southeast Georgia, the likelihood of tornado warnings and watches rise, according to the NWS. The greatest threat lies reportedly along the i-10 corridor.

“A few tornadoes will be possible across parts of the Florida Panhandle and the northern Florida Peninsula through this afternoon,” the National Hurricane Center said.

As of the NHC’s 7 a.m. hurricane update, Hurricane Michael is considered to be “potentially catastrophic” for the Florida Panhandle.

NSW urges people to monitor the weather closely throughout today and tomorrow.
