The hardest-hit counties in the Panhandle remain in a primitive state.

Flooding caused by the Category 4 hurricane washed out some roads and bridges, while others are impassible because of high standing water, downed power lines and massive amounts of debris, hampering search and rescue operations, and delaying the delivery of vital supplies to stranded residents.

"All the trees are ripped out of the ground and there's power lines laying all over the roads". He and Long stood amid insulation while workers continued repairing the roof. "They try to take a picture so we can call the family and tell them we made contact", said Matthew Marchetti, co-founder of the Houston-based CrowdSource Rescue.

With the majority of its 26,000 students displaced and many schools deemed not safe because of the damage, officials are discussing alternative ways to get students back to the classroom or provide psychological aid for them.

Florida Senator Bill Nelson went to Panama City, up the coast from Mexico Beach, and was stunned by what he saw.

The Husker State heroes weren't the only ones who rushed to help.

Large parts of the state's panhandle were pulverized by the strong winds and rain, and eight storm-related deaths have been reported in Florida so far.

"In times like these, campaigning has to take a backseat to governing", Gillum, the Democratic gubernatorial nominee, said in a statement Saturday.

"I can tell you that I love you all day long, or I can show you that I love you", he told CBN News.

"Floridians could go to the polls on November 6 and elect Governor Rick Scott to the Senate, the same Rick Scott who banned state employees from uttering or writing the words 'climate change.' Brilliant voters down there", he said on social media.


The destruction is huge.

Scott said he visited Mexico Beach on Friday which was almost wiped out in the storm and described the area looking like a "war zone". The timbered byways are now half as shady as they had been, with much of the surrounding forests lying across roads. Top military brass are on the scene to assess the damage to assets and capabilities and the Air Force took pains to reassure the public that the remaining Raptors still have a big bite.

Scott said he has received everything he has asked for from the federal government, and he talks to President Trump almost daily about the situation.

"I don't think it will ever be the same", said her husband Danny, 64, who is semi-retired. We have an unbelievable problem in Bay County - Verizon is down and AT&T is up, but the county services are on Verizon. "Power outages is the least of our worries", said Coaker.

"It's total devastation - no power, no water, no communication", she said.

"It's just bad, it's a bad situation", he said. "We'll be 25 years recovering from this in our timber community". Officials said they expect the temporary hospital to be able to offer a full range of medical services for a year. Women in Amish and Mennonite garb sang as they filled plates with potloaf - a mixture of meatloaf and potatoes - corn and tapioca.

The water receded within hours in some areas, and cleanup began Friday.

"They have come across injured people, they've had injured people approach their base camp", said Mike Wajda, an Orange County Fire Rescue division chief who serves as a regional coordinator for the Statewide Emergency Response Plan. "We do this because we love the Lord".

Dave Mullins looks out over the damage in front of his home, seen in background left, where he rode out hurricane Michael in Mexico Beach, Fla., Friday, Oct. 12, 2018. The Florida Democrat said that older buildings on the base were demolished, while newer structures are in need of substantial fix. "We've already seen several miracles".

"Things, we can replace", Farabaugh said on CNN's "Erin Burnett OutFront".
