Deputies from Sheriff's Office in Florida pray ahead of Hurricane Michael

TALLAHASSEE, Fla. - Before the potentially catastrophic storm made landfall in the Florida Panhandle, the Leon County Sheriff’s Office in Tallahassee took a moment to gather and pray ahead of Hurricane Michael.

The department posted photos and video of deputies meeting on Tuesday ahead of the storm.

Michael quickly grew from a Category 1 to Category 4 storm in just a few days, packing 155 mph winds as it made landfall near Mexico Beach, Fla. at about 1:45 p.m.

The sheriff's office asked "If you don't mind, say a prayer for all of the men and women working to keep our community safe."

The department's Facebook post received almost 6,000 shares in about 18 hours.
