Rep. Neal Dunn (R-Fla.) is urging Floridians to evacuate as Hurricane Michael barrels toward the Florida Panhandle, threatening to escalate into a Category 3 storm.

“We think in Florida that we’re old hands at hurricanes,” Dunn said on CNN’s “New Day. “Our first responders … they are telling you that this is the worst storm that any of us have seen in our lifetime in this area of the state.”

“We need to be evacuating,” he said. “You need to be on the road today, this morning and evacuating.”

Florida Gov. Rick Scott (R) declared a state of emergency for Florida over the weekend ahead of the storm, which is anticipated to strengthen into a hurricane and hit the coast on Wednesday, according to CNN.
