Hurricane Michael is expected to be a category four storm by the time it makes landfall Wednesday. The latest report from the National Hurricane Center says Michael's winds have  strengthened to 125 miles per hour, but it remains a category three. It's expected to make landfall along the Florida Panhandle Wednesday afternoon. Forecasters are calling this a life-threatening storm and  warning people in flood areas to get to safety.  The storm surge could  top more than a dozen feet.  Michael was upgraded to a Category Three  storm on Tuesday afternoon and is intensifying as it nears the Panhandle.  It is now about 200 miles south-southwest of Panama City,  Florida and moving at 12 miles per hour.
