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.
