Death toll in Hurricane Michael continues to rise

Florida officials said that roughly 375,000 people have been urged or ordered to evacuate.

By Tuesday, most models showed Beaufort County east of the path, but a tropical storm warning was issued.

A hurricane watch for the coast of Alabama was discontinued in the 11 a.m. update.

"We are still in the heat of search and rescue and do not have any information at this time", said Catie Feeney of the Bay County Emergency Services agency. That could change, as efforts to assess damage and look for casualties in the worst-hit communities have been hampered by downed utility lines and roads blocked by debris and fallen trees. "So many families have lost everything", he lamented. By Friday (Oct. 12), the storm will make its way out over the northern Atlantic, NOAA is now predicting. The state medical examiner's office has ruled Clark's death among five storm-related fatalities in the state.

Hundreds of thousands of people remain without electricity in Florida, Georgia and Virginia, and officials say it could be weeks before power is fully restored.

A pine tree punched a hole in their roof, and Beu's ears popped because of the drop in barometric pressure from the storm.

"It's easily the scariest thing I've ever lived through", McAuliffe said in an interview. "Can't tell the difference between what I've picked and what I haven't".

"Hurricane Michael arrived before most of the state farmers had started harvest for the season - specifically for pecans, peanuts and cotton", Tasnim Shamma reports from Atlanta member station WABE, for NPR's Newscast unit. One of the carport's legs punctured the roof and hit her in the head.

Three others died in Gadsden County, Hightower said.

Michael then blew through Virginia, where authorities said five people were killed.

In North Carolina, a 38-year-old man died when a large tree fell on his vehicle Thursday on USA 64 east of Statesville, Iredell County Fire Marshal David Souther said.




Thousands of residents in the Florida Panhandle are slowly returning to their homes and discovering that everything or nearly everything they owned has been reduced to rubble.

A few days ago, they were living in their dream home at Shell Point Beach.

Rebecca McAuliffe said: "You can't even recognize some of the areas in town".

"Raoul. It's just stuff".

Diane Farris, 57, and her son walked to a high school-turned-shelter near their home in Panama City to find about 1,100 people crammed into a space meant for about half as many. Despite the destruction, the Rev. Luke Farabaugh and his congregation celebrated Mass on Thursday. "Our reward isn't just in this life but in the life to come. I've been telling people.to have hope".

Hanson stayed in his family's house one block from the beach to ride out the storm, along with his uncle and 98-year-old grandmother.

In Mexico Beach, FL, alone, 16 people have been pulled from the rubble, CNN reported. "It's not the Mexico Beach we know".

Fast and furious Hurricane Michael barrelled toward the Florida Panhandle late Tuesday night with 125 miles per hour winds and a potentially catastrophic storm surge of 13 feet, giving tens of thousands of people precious little time to board up and get out.

Hundreds of cars had broken windows.

Michael left North Carolina and Virginia behind with rivers rising. It was the first time he had almost 2 feet of water in his home. "How are you going to get out of here?"

Tallahassee Mayor Andrew Gillum, Florida's Democratic nominee for governor, helped people fill sandbags. The National Hurricane Center on Friday warned the storm was gaining strength with maximum increasing to 65 miles per hour and would remain unsafe as it moves off toward the Atlantic Ocean through the weekend. "We want to get them out of the way".
