It wasn't clear if that would happen again on Wednesday - President Trump is scheduled to hold a campaign rally in Erie, Pennsylvania this evening, and Vice President Pence is scheduled to hold two campaign events in Wisconsin for Gov. Scott Walker.
The threat of damage from Hurricane Michael isn't limited to just the Florida Panhandle, as the storm is forecast to drop a large amount of rain on areas from southern Georgia, through the Carolinas, and up into southeastern parts of Virginia.
For the Carolinas, heavy rains would hit areas still struggling to get back to normal after Hurricane Florence, which caused extensive flooding in September.
The hurricane is anticipated to make landfall near Panama City, Florida early this afternoon.
Former FEMA Director Craig Fugate, who lives in north central Florida, said those in the path of the storm need to be ready - even if you don't live near the coast.
"Hurricane Michael is almost here," Fugate tweeted on Wednesday morning, as he said people should "expect long term power outages, limited or no cellular service, no cable, no WiFi. Charge your electronic devices."
