The National Hurricane Center clocked Michael's sustained wind speed at 150 mph (240 kph) just before noon local time on Wednesday, Oct. 10.Storm Chaser Jeff Piotrowski arrived at Mexico Beach, Florida on October 09, 2018. He began filming along the Florida coast and LiveStreaming via Twitter’s Periscope and on his YouTube Channel Tornado Alley Video. Jeff never skirts the issue. He is know to “tell it like it is” and as he was filming along the coastline, looking at all of the beach homes he said. It will all be gone tomorrow. It isn’t something he likes to tell people but if he can save one life, maybe that one family that was going to try and ride out the Hurricane…maybe they heard what he has to say and will decide to leave. Jeff wanted to continue Live Streaming the event but Verizon’s cell service went down and Jeff was barely able to get a small amount of radar data to keep him safe and could not stream. We begin this video just as Hurricane Michael was ramping up near Callaway, Florida. We hope to post more video of before Hurricane Michael made landfall and then aftermath footage. We ask that everyone please donate to one of the many, many charitable organizations who are on the ground right now, helping people with shelter, food and clothing. Also, lets not forget the fur babies who were lost during the storm and are now found, requiring care. The ASPCA disaster response team does an amazing job.Music: Epic Dubstep by AttuneTunez Audio Jungle

    It's a good thing he got that notification to tell him there were high winds in the area.

    I love how excited Jeff was when he was in the eye.

    Only Jeff could find the largest naturally occurring wind vane in the continental U.S. by chance.

    I'm baffled how that one Walgreen's sign remained intact in all of this mayhem.

    It must be special to be in the eye of a near Cat 5 hurricane. You even got footage of the stadium effect. Best video of Michael by far. That's a money maker right there!

    Amazing footage of the eye in that monster storm. Great job but dangerous I heard him praying, glad you made it safe.

    This dude must've been in heaven. As much as they love chasing super cells and tornadoes this must've been the mother of all storms for chasers. 155 mph winds in a storm lasting a couple hours. Dayum.

    Not for rebroadcast. Hopefully it won't get stolen without giving you credit like the BP sign.

    This footage really reminded me of Super Typhoon Haiyan roaring through the Philippines. It will be a long rehabilitation for the people affected by the storm.

    Cannot overstate the surreal ness and the feeling with the pressure change inside the eye. I’ve only once experienced being in eye of the storm and it’s just so incredible and awesome to experience!

    I happened to be in this...
    We lost so much...
    All of our neighborhood gone.
    My house somehow stood.
    We had no power for a week..
    We couldn't go to school for 3 weeks, we had no signal so we couldn't get ahold of our loved ones...
    Everyone was so scared...
    I still can't believe I'm alive after all of this...
    All of the old building I went to when I was little...Gone...
    All of the memories flashed before my eyes...
    No body new it was going to be this bad...
    It was just supposed to be a category 2....The next day it was a 3....The next morning a 4...
    God I still remember the wind..
    The sound will never leave my head...
    Hurricane Michael may have taken our homes...Our towns or city's, but it will never take the memories we had...

    This is in Callaway at the corner of highway 22 and Tyndall parkway. The media keeps showing Mexico Beach, which is bad, but Callaway, Parker, Tyndall AFB, Panama City, Springfield, Southport, Lynn Haven, Bayou George, Youngstown, Fountain, St. Joe Beach...these areas got smashed and most won't make the news. Drive through most of these areas and it's like time stood still and the storm just happened yesterday. I'm so grateful that my house survived, damaged but still here. So many lost everything.

    Incredible footage as always, Jeff. That holy grail shot of the eye opening was literally amazing and beautiful, although contained within a massive path of destruction. Would you say that Michael tops Harvey as a wind destruction event, while Harvey tops Michael as a flooding destruction event?

    There was an article I read somewhere that there is a good possibility, due to how low the barometric pressure got with this beast, that the NWS/NOAA could reclassify this as a Cat 5 once all the data has been analyzed.
