Hurricane Florence

(WTEN/WOOD) —  While Michigan is never directly hit by hurricanes, the Great Lakes state still feels their effects in wind and rain.

According to a National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration interactive map, the most rainfall Michigan has experienced from a tropical storm was more than 6 inches from Candy in 1968.

According to the National Weather Service, Florence is expected to drop amounts of more than 40 inches of rain in some local areas, which would be unprecedented for the Carolinas.
