Hurricane Michael was the strongest hurricane to hit Florida, and the United State since Hurricane Andrew in 1992.
With 161 mph winds at landfall, it developed into a major hurricane from a tropical depression in less than 24 hours.

Hurricanes Irma, Florence and Michael all ravaged Florida in the past 2 years.
