Florida braces for Hurricane Michael

A storm churning toward Florida is gaining strength.

Hurricane Michael is expected to hit the Florida panhandle tomorrow as a major hurricane.

As residents desperately try to secure their homes, emergency management officials say the storm is projected to make landfall as a Category 3 hurricane with winds up to 115 mph.

More than 300 miles of coastline are under warnings as Michael draws closer. Florida Governor Rick Scott has declared a state of emergency in 35 counties and calls the storm a 'monstrous hurricane.'
