Rep. Neal Dunn, R-Fla., urged residents along Florida’s northern gulf coast to heed evacuation orders in advance of Hurricane Michael’s fury.

Dunn’s comments came on CNN’s “New Day” program on Tuesday. A video clip was posted on the show’s Twitter account.

“We think in Florida that we’re old hands at hurricanes,” he said. “Our EOCs (emergency operations centers), our first responders – they’ve been drilling for this very storm for the last 5 or 6 years. And they are telling you this is the worst storm that any of us have seen in our lifetimes in this area of the state. We need to be evacuating.”

Michael has winds of near 100 miles per hour and was expected to strengthen into a major hurricane before making landfall in Florida. The center of Michael is expected to move inland near the Florida panhandle on Wednesday, according to the National Hurricane Center.
