Hurricane Michael hit Georgia as a major Category 3 hurricane on October 10, with winds of up to 115 mph. Michael was the first Category 3 storm to hit Georgia since the 1800s. McDonough and surrounding areas, on the northern half of Georgia, saw 7.68 inches of rain in a matter of hours, leaving flooding and devastation in the area.
Due to the severity of the storm, at least 100,000 people in Georgia lost power; extreme winds knocked down trees and branches, leading the National Weather Service to advise on Twitter: “As Michael moves farther inland into Georgia and areas less familiar with extreme winds, trees become a clear and present danger. Minimize your risk in single story homes by staying in interior rooms away from large trees and overhanging branches.”
