Hurricane Michael made landfall on the Florida Panhandle on Wednesday as what Gov. Rick Scott called, “the worst storm that our Florida Panhandle has seen in a century.” Packing maximum sustained winds of 155 miles an hour, the storm rolled ashore midday and pummeled the coast with rain, wind and storm surges.

Photographers Gabriella Angotti-Jones, Scott McIntyre, Johnny Milano and Eric Thayer are on the ground in Florida covering the storm for The New York Times. We’ll be updating this feed with their latest work over the next several days.
