South and Central Georgia get pounded from Hurricane Michael. For the Metro Atlanta area we still get an impact the next 12-24 hours.

The last Cat 3 or higher tropical cyclone to track into Georgia was 1898 according to expert Philip Klotzbach.

Highest risk for flooding and power outages remains near and South of a line from Athens to La grange. Any flooding or power outages Northwest of that line will be the exception not the rule baring any last minute changes in the path of Michael.
