Trump To Visit Storm-Ravaged Areas

Hurricane Michael's death toll rose to 11 on Friday as five people were reported killed when remnants of the storm passed through the USA state of Virginia, local officials said. "I don't know what I'm going to do", he said.

According to CNN reports on Saturday, more than 1 million people have been left without electricity and emergency officials have no access to many towns.

Michael made landfall in the Florida Panhandle with maximum sustained winds of 249 kilometers per hour, putting it just below the Category 5 status that tops the scale used to describe the strength and destructive potential of hurricanes.

Shell-shocked survivors who barely escaped with their lives told of terrifying winds, surging floodwaters and homes cracking like eggs.

Based on barometric pressure, Michael was also the third most powerful hurricane to ever hit the US mainland, behind the Labor Day storm of 1935 and Hurricane Camille in 1969.

Emergency officials said they had done an initial "hasty search" of 80% of the stricken area, looking for the living or the dead.

Bill Shockey, 86, refused to leave Mexico Beach despite his daughter's pleas. Radney, who was visiting her grandparents in Seminole County, Georgia, was killed when a portable carport broke through the house and struck her in the head. Helicopters were needed to deliver supplies to the most remote areas like St. George Island, Apalachicola and Port St. Joe, state officials said. The Federal Emergency Management Agency warned that the death toll is likely to rise, with Long writing on Twitter that "People do not live to tell the tale about storm surge".

By Friday, authorities had begun setting up distribution centers to dole out food and water.

While some in the lesser-hit areas, like Tallahassee, started to get their power back on Thursday, more than 350,000 people remained without power in the Panhandle Friday morning.

"I didn't recognize nothing".

At least four deaths from the storm have been confirmed in Florida, five in Virginia, one in Georgia and one in North Carolina.

Numerous 600 families who live there followed orders to pack what they could in a single suitcase as they were evacuated.

The storm moved fast and many people didn't have time to evacuate as the tropical depression formed over the weekend and strengthened into a Category 2 hurricane by Tuesday.

Tyndall Air Force Base, home to the F-22 stealth fighter, suffered extensive damage, according to aerial photos of the coastal facility. The elementary school, the flight line, the marina and the runways were devastated. He said he did not know how long recovery efforts would take because "We need to restore basic utilities, clear our roads of trees and power lines, and assess the structural integrity of our buildings".
