Hurricane Michael Death Toll Rises as Rescuers Search for Survivors

"Can we have church?'"

Scott said he has received everything he has asked for from the federal government, and he talks to President Trump almost daily about the situation. He and his family rode out the storm in their hotel room with only two beds and more than 10 people.

A huge drive-through distribution center for Liberty County residents in Bristol was busy Sunday morning, with state and local authorities handing out food, water and ice.

Some people have resorted to looting.

President Donald Trump is expected to visit both Florida and Georgia early this week to inspect the damage, and the White House said late October 13, the president was fully committed to helping state and local agencies with the recovery.

Parrish, whose son has cancer, is in a position many in the Panama City region are facing. Others include Jonathan Drew in Raleigh, North Carolina, Darlene Superville in Washington, and Seth Borenstein in Kensington, Maryland.

Florida is odd because such industry leaders as Allstate and State Farm play a much smaller role in protecting home owners than they do in other states.

So far, one body has been found in Mexico Beach, but authorities say there is little doubt the death toll will rise.

The future of thousands of students also remains unclear, especially those in Bay County, where schools are closed until further notice. "It's going to take years to get things back up and running".

Jeff and Katrina Pearsey, with a ruined rental home in the Panama City area and no indication of when they could again earn a living, said they were heading to Bangor, Maine, where Katrina once worked as a nurse. There is no cell service in the area.

According to Reuters, "teams consisting mostly of off-duty police officers and firefighters have found more than 520 of the 2,100 people reported missing" since the hurricane hit.

Long urged communities such as Mexico Beach, where many homes were obliterated by 12 to 14 feet (3.7 to 4.3 meters) of storm surge, to rebuild to withstand future storms.

Normally the Bristol Church of God has a worship service that draws about 70, but just about two dozen congregants were able to gather in the parking lot outside the hurricane damaged church this Sunday.

"We know each person in the majority of the houses".

"I told him, 'Hold on, just hold on, I'm calling for help now", she told CNN affiliate WFTS, sobbing.

Aluminium siding was shredded and homes were split by fallen trees.

Five people are dead and one is still missing in Virginia after the area was hit by Hurricane Michael.

"Hopefully they (emergency crews) will be here soon. Everything's gone. I didn't even know our road was our road", said Tiffany Marie Plushnik, 25, an evacuee who returned to find her home in Sandy Creek too damaged to live in.

18 people have died across the southeastern USA because of Michael. She was safe until a carport came crashing through the roof. After Michael barreled into the Florida Panhandle, it made its way to southwest Georgia and SC - while also lashing North Carolina and Virginia.

Six people died in Virginia. "These counties took a devastating hit", Sen.

A report at Climate Depot explained the death wish came from Michael Gravitz, a lobbyist for the Marine Conservation Institute. The planet has warmed significantly over the past several decades, causing changes in the environment. "Storm surge causes the most amount of loss of life".

While there might not be more storms in a warmer climate, most studies show storms will get stronger and produce more rain. "Not all of that commercialism", said Dottie Sinclair, 57, a nurse, adding a Subway fast-food restaurant was the only commercial chain.
