The most intense hurricanes to strike the United States

10/11/2018
Graphic News

October 11, 2018 -- Hurricane Michael struck the Florida Panhandle as a Category 4 storm, the third most powerful hurricane ever to hit the United States.

One of the strongest storms in American history has battered north-west Florida, flooding homes, washing away beaches and snapping trees.

Hurricane Michael made landfall on October 10 as a category four storm with 155mph (250km/h) winds, killing at least two people, including a child. It has now weakened to a tropical storm and is on its way to the Carolinas.

Residents across the southern U.S. have been warned of the continuing danger from downed powerlines, flash floods, and landslides. There are fears too for people who ignored evacuation warnings in some of the areas now flooded. More than 400,000 homes and businesses were left without electricity in Florida, Alabama and Georgia.


NEW GRAPHIC NEWS - a new website for a new era.

28 years ago — April 2, 1991 — the original Graphic News launched using a precursor to today’s websites that used email technology. These enabled infographics to be delivered electronically around the world over telephone lines. What was possible was very limited - It took 10 minutes for a 100K file to download.

Since then delivery speeds and website technology have moved on. The new website will offer the best online experience possible now, adding many new features (and offering new opportunities for the future), but still enabling existing users to select and download infographics and enjoy the distinct brand of visual journalism that is Graphic News.


Over the coming weeks I will give further information. Please contact me if you have any questions. Fiona Roberts, froberts @ graphicnews.com
