PANAMA CITY BEACH, FL. (THECOUNT) — It’s official, Hurricane Michael is expected to be so dangerous even a Panama City Beach Waffle House has pulled out the storm shutters and locked its doors.

The restaurant located on Highway 30-A just across from the beach was locked down as hurricane shutters covered the store with a simple ‘closed’ sign on the door.

If you recall with Hurricane Florence, many looked to Waffle House locations in the storm’s path to see how bad the hurricane would be. That’s because FEMA uses the Waffle House Index which uses the operating conditions of the resilient Southern restaurants as a barometer for how well an area will recover from a hurricane, tornado or other hazards.
