Hurricane Michael made landfall in Florida earlier today causing widespread devastation with winds up to 155 miles per hour. It is now making its way across Georgia and is expected to hit several states in the southeast, including Alabama, South Carolina, North Carolina, and Virginia.



When the hurricane hit Florida, it was classified as a Category 4 storm, the strongest to hit the continental United States since Hurricane Andrew. It has now weakened to a Category 1 storm, but has done serious damage and left hundreds of thousands without power.



Cook did not say how much Apple plans to donate, but for other recent hurricane disasters, the company has provided $1 million in aid.
