The Powerball prize is up to $282 million and the drawing is set for Wednesday night, but the drawing won’t be broadcast on TV due to Hurricane Michael.

The Powerball drawing is normally done at Florida Lottery Headquarters in Tallahassee, but Hurricane Michael has forced the facility to close. The official drawing will be held at 10:59 p.m. Eastern Time Wednesday, but it will be done at a backup site in Urbandale, Iowa, where it won't be broadcast.

A notice on Powerball's website says the drawing will still be done under the observation of draw officials, security personnel and independent auditors.

After the winning numbers are drawn, you can find them at Powerball.com.
