With the maximum sustained winds from Hurricane Michael now reaching new 150 mph, all eyes are on the Florida Panhandle. The National Hurricane Center has said that the eyewall of Michael is expected to come on shore somewhere between St. Vincent Island and Panama City. Here are live streams and videos of the Panama City area as Hurricane Michael approaches. The first video above is a stream from The Sun which periodically shows Panama City. Please note that these live streams may go down as the hurricane approaches. Non-livestream videos will also be included in this article.
