According to the Sun Sentinel, Some Florida Panhandle county officials are pushing for Hurricane Michael to be labeled a Category 5 storm.
These officials want to label the October storm a Category 5 as a leverage to try and win a higher reimbursement from FEMA, but also as validation and a badge of honor for a region that feels forgotten by the rest of the nation.
Per the conventional Saffir-Simpson Hurricane Wind Scale, the standard used by the National Hurricane Center based on sustained wind speeds, Hurricane Michael was a strong Category 4 with measured 155 mph sustained winds upon landfall- 2 mph under Category 5 status.
