Hurricane Michael Aftermath: Scenes of Destruction in Panama City, Florida


Hurricane Michael — dubbed “the worst storm that the Florida Panhandle has ever seen” by Gov. Rick Scott — wreaked havoc on Panama City Wednesday, bringing with it catastrophic winds and flooding that destroyed any anything in its path.

Photos and footage of the aftermath show catastrophic damage to the town where Michael first made landfall — even as the storm continues to move through southern Georgia.

Damage in Panama City near where Michael came ashore Wednesday afternoon was so extensive that uprooted trees and downed power lines lay nearly everywhere. Roofs were peeled away and homes were split open by fallen trees. https://t.co/7B6F3nH8ahpic.twitter.com/VAUBp9tcdS
