Immense Hurricane Michelle Will Dump Massive Amount Of Rain On Florida

(Miami-AP) -- Hurricane Michelle's winds are up to 85 miles per hour as the storm creeps toward Cuba.

The National Hurricane Center says that Florida could be in for trouble, but it depends on what a weather system over the United States does in the next couple of days.

The hurricane could end up heading anywhere between Naples to the north and the Caribbean to the east. Forecasters think Michelle will eventually grow to 110 miles per hour.

The Hurricane Center says that regardless of where it ends up going, Michelle is likely to dump up to six inches of rain on southern Florida and the Keys. A direct hit could bring as much as 24 inches of rain.

Michelle is immense, with a width of 230 miles. That's about twice as wide as South Florida.
