1 Dead As Powerful Hurricane Michael Smashes Florida Panhandle

1 Dead As Powerful Hurricane Michael Smashes Florida Panhandle
NDTV:

"I had a yard full of 20-inch pine trees and there's not one left standing," said Chad Taylor, 66, a land manager in Marianna. "I can see for miles and miles," he added, quoting the rock band the Who. "Marianna's destroyed."

Power outages soared through the day, reaching more than 300,000 by Wednesday evening, with nearly 90 percent of Bay County - home to Mexico Beach and Panama City - losing power. Nearby Liberty County had 81 percent of accounts without power, the state reported.

Bay Medical Sacred Heart hospital in Panama City reported on Twitter that it suffered blown-out windows, a cracked wall and roof damage, and had shifted patients to safe areas while the hospital ran on generator power.

The bayfront city of Apalachicola, Florida's oyster capital, suffered severe flooding and property damage along aptly named Water Street, home to several restaurants. The city was temporarily cut off from the rest of the state, with U.S. Highway 98 to the west blocked by pine trees and oak branches; going east was unthinkable because the causeway had vanished under the elevated water of Apalachicola Bay.

Smith, the Franklin County sheriff, said the county-run hospital had closed, and ambulance staff had evacuated - to his dismay.

"I don't get it," Smith said Wednesday morning. "Would I like to get out of here? Heck yeah. Am I leaving? No."
