The storm is forecast to be a Category 3hurricane with maximum winds of 125 miles per hour as it makes landfall Wednesday afternoon.
Peaton says he's working closely with the National Weather Service to provide accurate information and protective measures to his county, which faces the Gulf of Mexico and is especially vulnerable to any flooding produced by Michael. The agency warned residents in Florida and Alabama of the risk of storm surges, damaging winds and flash flooding. He said people will "not be dragged out of their homes", but anyone who stays behind will be on their own once the storm hits. "That's the criticality of following directions".
Parts of Florida have been evacuated as Michael makes is way towards the Florida Panhandle, threatening at least 120,000 people.

Scott declared a state of emergency for 35 Florida counties from the Panhandle to Tampa Bay, activated hundreds of Florida National Guard members and waived tolls to encourage those near the coast to evacuate inland. "Current projections show large swaths of storm surge greater than nine feet above ground forecast across the region". "That means the water will come miles in shore and could easily be over the roofs of houses", Scott said.
"Think about destruction we've seen before with storms like Hurricane Irma".
A life-threatening storm surge has been predicted along Florida's Gulf Coast, along with unsafe winds and heavy rainfall.
Michael also could dump up to a foot (30 centimeters) of rain over some Panhandle communities before it moves over Alabama, Georgia, the Carolinas and Virginia Wednesday night and Thursday. Storm surge rises rapidly Wednesday morning and afternoon.
Meanwhile, tropical storm warnings extend from Florida's Chassahowitzka River to the Mississippi-Alabama border.
Hurricane Michael is gaining strength as it lashes Cuba's western tip and lumbers northward toward the U.S. In a Monday afternoon update, forecasters said winds have increased to almost 80 miles per hour (129 kph) as the storm moves north at almost 9 miles per hour (14 kph). It developed into a hurricane Monday.

Forecasters said parts of Florida's marshy, lightly populated Big Bend area - the crook of Florida's elbow - could see up to 12 feet (3.7 meters) of storm surge.
Conditions may begin to deteriorate as early as Tuesday evening on the north-eastern Gulf Coast.
Three Florida Panhandle counties have issued mandatory evacuation orders ahead of Hurricane Michael's expected landfall.
Mandatory evacuation orders were issued for residents of barrier islands, mobile homes and low-lying coastal areas in Gulf, Wakulla and Bay counties.
So the damage footprint of hurricane Michael will be very different and aside from the threat posed by a Category 3 landfall and storm surge the impacts inland from wind damage could be much more significant than seen with recent Florence.
