Historic and horrendous Hurricane Michael by the numbers

Saturday 17:15 GMT

The National Hurricane Center issued its final advisory on Michael on Friday morning as remnants of the once-mighty hurricane head toward the North Atlantic.

Hurricane Michael enters the books as the fourth-strongest (based on wind, third-strongest based on pressure) hurricane to make landfall in the United States in modern recorded history. It was the worst storm on record for the Florida Panhandle, one of the worst ever in Georgia and Alabama, and continued to deliver a heavy blow as it charged across the Mid-Atlantic.
