Michael, Now Post-Tropical Storm, Batters Tri-State With Rain, Wind

The impact of Tropical Storm Michael continues in the Carolinas, with one death in North Carolina, 490,000 people without power Friday morning, ongoing flooding and more than a dozen school districts closed.

In Virginia, the National Weather Service said on Friday, "significant river flooding is occurring or forecast on the Appomattox River and possibly even on the lower James River".

It's Day 2 after Hurricane Michael made landfall, and search and rescue is still under way, state emergency officials said Friday morning - as more emphasis is beginning to shift to the "search". The storm's 155 miles per hour winds shredded homes, and a 14-foot storm surge bulldozed everything in its path.

Search and rescue teams combed through shattered U.S. communities on Thursday looking for victims of Hurricane Michael, a Category 4 monster storm which carved out a swathe of destruction in the Florida Panhandle, killing at least six in three states.

The Sunshine State suffered the brunt of Hurricane Michael's punishing winds, which decimated beach towns and left little more than debris in their wake. Total damages from storm surge are estimated to be $3.7 billion, of which about ten percent will be insured. The figure does not include losses covered by the National Flood Insurance Program.

Florida Gov. Rick Scott said state officials still "do not know enough" about the fate of those who stayed behind in the region.

Monster Hurricane Michael has now moved out into the Atlantic, but it left behind devastation of catastrophic proportions.

Michael smashed into Florida's northwest coast near the small town of Mexico Beach with screeching 250 kilometres per hour winds, pushing a wall of seawater inland.

Brock Long, head of the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA), warned that he expected the number of deaths to rise. He says it's still too risky in Bay County, Florida, where the hurricane made landfall.

About 1.5 million homes and businesses were without power from Florida to Virginia early on Friday, according to utility companies. A man also died Thursday on USA 64 in Iredell County when a large oak tree toppled onto his auto, The Charlotte Observer reported. Similar scenes played out in parts of Virginia as the storm raced seawards.

A Family Dollar Store that had the storefront ripped off is seen in the aftermath of Hurricane Michael in Millville. A special tactics team has cleared a runway at the base, allowing aircraft with supplies and food to land. But boil water advisories are in effect in about eight locations impacted by Hurricane Michael.

"Once that sheer weakened, the rest of the conditions were already present", said Corene J. Matyas, a hurricane expert and associate professor in the Department of Geography at the University of Florida. Roy and Amber Rodney said their daughter loved to perform.
