    The Weather Channel reported that 285 people refused to evacuate the area. A few have been rescued. The rest are unaccounted for.

    The death toll is going to rise as clean up continues.
    They haven't had time to find all the bodies yet.

    And a lot will probably never be found, at least in the US most people have a record of their existence, family and friends who will report them missing; but if swept out to sea they will probably have to wait to be declared legally dead.

    Idk if anyone has mentioned this, but, did anyone see the drone footage of Tyndall AFB? A storm chaser was credited. Iím wondering if heíll get in trouble. He got some good shots of damaged aircraft inside hangars. I would think that is protected air space.

    I think he could say he was looking for injured people and be covered. No one would care if a medevac or police chopper flew over an inactive base. Its not the WH or area 51.

    What area was this?
    People are quick to confuse and despise confidence as arrogance but that is common amongst those who have never accomplished anything in their lives and who have always played it safe not willing to risk failure.

    I'm seeing photos of major storm surge damage, I.E. wind driven water and waves and it washed houses off their foundations.
    Looks like the damage to boats the cost will exceed the cost of homes/buildings destroyed by a long shot.

    Two points:

    1. Tyndall is not inactive

    2. A police chopper pilot wouldn't post the footage on youtube

    Here is the drone footage ( 50 seconds ):

    Fox reporting that the USAF is saying that at lEast 3 F-22s were damaged at Tyndall AFB along with other aircraft and that all buildings at the base were damaged to the point of being uninhabitable.

    Fox News reporting all hangers damaged extensively and 3 F-22s also damaged.
    No info on whether a complete loss or not. Not one structure on whole base left undamaged.
    Entire base will be nonoperational for the foreseeable future.

    3 F-22s damaged.

    They were non-operational, no doubt.

    My Friday morning. The storm blew through here from 9 or 10 o'clock until around 3:30 am. Really strong winds, torrential rain and some minor flooding. Got some exercise in today. Yay me

    Today was a beautiful day though.

    Thank you, I was wondering about this hence the reason I asked.

    An F-16 after Hurricane Andrew, 1992, Homestead AFB, FL. If they are non-flyable you can't fly 'em out.

    Whew! We're 60 miles west of Panama City here. Evacuated Tuesday(?) night because radar wasn't showing Michael making that turn yet. We're only about a mile inland, so we weren't taking any chances with this storm

    Got back into town to find flickering , intermittent power in the house. Gulf Power came right out and said we had a broken neutral wire to the house. Ended up with a fried microwave, stove oven out, one tv out, daughter's electric keyboard out, elliptical out, fried Directv boxes, and fried line to the router.

    Internet guy just left. Directv came out yesterday. And thanks to Forida's hurricane deductible, we probably won't get reimbursed for our losses.

    On the bright side, no property damage here, and we're all safe.!

    Our rental house in Dothan, AL (80 miles to Panama City had a neighbor's tree take out our fence, and the wood burning stove lost it's thing off the roof. Other than that, all is well.

    I'm thankful it's all over!!!

    I haven't read the whole thread yet. I hope everyone else came through okay!
