    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. I’m wondering if he’ll 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.

    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

    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!

    Hurricane Michael exposes 120-year-old shipwrecks off Florida coast

    21 hours ago By Jared Leone, Cox Media Group National Content Desk
    Mar 28, 2018

    Ships swept ashore nearly 120 years ago when a hurricane hit the Florida panhandle were recently uncovered by Hurricane Michael.


    The well-documented wrecks washed up on Dog Island in 1899, when the Carrabelle hurricane brought 100 mph winds, causing $1 million in damage and killing seven people, according to the Florida Department of State.

    “They’ve been mostly stationary since 1899 when they were wrecked in a hurricane,” Sarah Revell, spokeswoman with the Florida Department of State, wrote in an email to the Tallahassee Democrat. “From time to time, some parts of the site have become exposed.”

    There are no plans for state archaeologists to visit the site, the Democrat reported

    3 linemen - 2 from NC - mowed down in Florida while restoring power; 2 dead, man in custody

    3 linemen - 2 from NC - mowed down in Florida while restoring power; 2 dead, man in custody
    52 minutes ago

    Three linemen who were working to restore power in the Panhandle after Hurricane Michael were mowed down last night by a hit-and-run driver from Tampa, deputies say. Two of the linemen died from their injuries.

    According to the Florida Highway Patrol, 37-year-old John Goedtke, of Tampa, was traveling northbound on State 77 towing a U-Haul trailer. Goedtke's vehicle left the roadway and struck three utility workers attempting to restore power in the area.

    Killed in the crash were Chipley resident James Ussery, 60, along with North Carolina resident George Cecil, 52. A third lineman, also from North Carolina, was taken to Southeast Medical Center by helicopter in critical condition.

    Deputies say Goedtke ran away from the crash scene, but was spotted by a Chipley police officer and taken into custody.

    Goedtke has been arrested in Hillsborough County 27 times since he was 19 years-old, according to jail records.

    In the past he's been in trouble for drugs, battery, driving with a suspended or revoked license, grand theft, grand theft of motor vehicle, fraudulent use of a credit card, burglary, felony fleeing to elude, reckless driving, and resisting an officer with violence.

    WFLA 8 On Your Side is working to learn who the linemen were and where they're from.

    The Florida Highway Patrol is investigating.
    ----------


    The Florida Highway Patrol said in a news release the crash happened Wednesday evening near Chipley, which is north of Panama City.

    Sgt. R.C. Livingston says the vehicle was heading north on State Road 77 when it went onto the shoulder and struck the men.
