Hurricane Michael, a category 4 storm made landfall at Mexico Beach, Florida on 10 October. Wind speeds of up to 155mph have caused severe damage to buildings and one person was killed by a falling tree.

President Trump declared a state of emergency for the entire state of Florida, releasing funds for disaster response. Over 2000 military personnel have been deployed together with helicopters and boats.
