PANAMA CITY

Cape Times - - WORLD - | Pic­ture: AP

A WOMAN in­spects dam­ages to her fam­ily prop­er­ties in Panama City in the af­ter­math of Hur­ri­cane Michael hit­ting Flor­ida’s Pan­han­dle this week. The most pow­er­ful hur­ri­cane on record to hit the re­gion left widespread de­struc­tion and wasn’t fin­ished yes­ter­day as it crossed Ge­or­gia to­ward the Caroli­nas, a re­gion still reel­ing from epic flood­ing in Hur­ri­cane Florence.

Au­thor­i­ties say at least one per­son died, a man hit by a fall­ing tree on a Pan­han­dle home. The Cat­e­gory 4 mon­ster, pack­ing 250km/h winds, was down­graded to a trop­i­cal storm over south Ge­or­gia, and was weak­en­ing by the hour. But it’s still men­ac­ing the US south-east with heavy rains, winds and the threat of tor­na­does.
