Hurricane Michael: Record-breaking storm moves onto Georgia having left trail of destruction in Florida

Hurricane Michael - one of the most powerful storms ever to strike the US mainland - has roared into the Florida coast bringing tree-snapping winds and towering waves.

The Category 4 storm made landfall at Mexico Beach at approximately 1:30pm local time, with wind speeds of 155mph - just shy of an extremely rare Category 5 storm.

The storm is the most powerful ever to hit north-west Florida. Earlier in the day, Florida Governor Rick Scott warned of "unimaginable devastation" calling it the worst storm to hit the area "in a century".
