Thanks for sharing these aerials Barb.  They do help to clarify the extent of the damage.

I would like to see more news about the relief efforts on the ground especially Mexico Beach, FL.
I heard on the news yesterday FEMA had arrived, yesterday. Also heard previousy that the National Guard was there pretty quickly after the hurricane moved through... But just not sure if the response is adequate.  Deaths were numbered at 17 in one report, 14 in another. I cannot help but think it is going to be a higher toll than that. I did read that an enormous evacuation took place, but not sure of other southeastern states, how prepared they were.
Info anyone? I have not checked for it today...

I agree that things have been a bit quiet on that topic.  Keeping everyone in prayers down there.

Death toll from Florida hurricane at least 29, hundreds missing

PANAMA CITY BEACH, Fla., Oct 16 (Reuters) - The death toll from Hurricane Michael rose to at least 29 on Tuesday as crews scoured debris for hundreds of people reported missing in the Florida Panhandle, nearly a week after the storm flattened whole communities.

Michael slammed into the northwest coastal strip of Florida last Wednesday with top sustained winds of 155 miles per hour, unleashing a surge of seawater that demolished homes.

One of the most powerful storms ever to hit the continental United States, it has killed 20 people in the Florida Panhandle, five in Virginia, three in North Carolina and one in Georgia, according to a Reuters tally of official reports.

Matthew Marchetti, co-founder of Houston-based CrowdSource Rescue, which had hundreds of volunteers on the ground, said he expects the death toll to rise as phone service is restored and roads are cleared.

Death toll from Florida hurricane at least 29, hundreds missing

"For every one person we have made contact with, there are probably three we haven't," Marchetti said.

Teams from the volunteer organization were searching for more than 1,135 people in Florida who lost contact with friends and family.

Debris and downed trees and power lines have hampered access to stranded people but the group has said a number of its missing person reports resulted from widespread phone and power outages.

Most of those missing are from Panama City and many are elderly, disabled, impoverished, or live alone, Marchetti said.

"The hardest hit in disasters are generally our most vulnerable populations," Marchetti said.

In nearby Mexico Beach, another hard-hit coastal town on the Florida Panhandle where rescue workers were using dogs to look for bodies buried in debris, the number of people missing dropped to three on Tuesday, said Rex Putnal, a city councilor. A day earlier, it was more than 30.

The town of 1,200 residents had reported two fatalities as of Monday.

"It's miraculous if all we have is two fatalities," said Mexico Beach Mayor Al Cathey.

Nearly 190,000 homes and businesses remained without power in the U.S. Southeast, with residents of battered coastal towns forced to cook on fires and barbecue grills.

At least 80 percent of customers in three mainly rural Panhandle counties were without electricity on Tuesday. Officials said it could be weeks before power returns to some.

CAMPING OUT

Countless others in the region's backcountry have struggled for days without running water or sanitation, awaiting help from authorities. Some have been camping in tents with the belongings they were able to salvage.

"I'm staying out here to try to keep away looters, to try to save what I can save," said Bernard Sutton, a 64-year-old cancer patient, who has been living out of a tent and broken-down minivan in rural Fountain, Florida.

The state government is distributing ice, water and about 3 million ready-to-eat meals, according to Governor Rick Scott's office.

Water supply was restored to some residents in Panama City on Monday but Bay County officials said it was not yet safe to drink.

"This type of living wears on you," said Putnal, the Mexico Beach city councilor. "This is about my fifth day and I'm just not used to washing clothes in a tub with no washer and dryer and eating only peanut butter and jelly sandwiches."

Cellphone service returned to some storm-damaged areas on Tuesday, but many residents have expressed frustration at the slow recovery of wireless networks.

Federal Communications Commission Chairman Ajit Pai on Tuesday called for wireless carriers to waive bills for customers affected by the storm and allow consumers to switch carriers without penalties.

The Mayor of New Orleans told people to stock up on supplies and shelter in place.
Experts are saying this weather event will be the worst since Katrina.

Excerpts:


HAZARDS AFFECTING LAND
----------------------
Key Messages for Barry can be found in the Tropical Cyclone
Discussion under AWIPS header MIATCDAT2 and WMO header WTNT42 KNHC.

STORM SURGE:  The combination of a dangerous storm surge and the
tide will cause normally dry areas near the coast to be flooded by
rising waters moving inland from the shoreline.  The water could
reach the following heights above ground somewhere in the indicated
areas if the peak surge occurs at the time of high tide...

Intracoastal City to Shell Beach...3 to 6 ft
Shell Beach to Biloxi MS...3 to 5 ft
Lake Pontchartrain...3 to 5 ft
Biloxi MS to the Mississippi/Alabama border...2 to 4 ft
Lake Maurepas...1 to 3 ft

Surge-related flooding depends on the relative timing of the surge
and the tidal cycle, and can vary greatly over short distances. For
information specific to your area, please see products issued by
your local National Weather Service forecast office.

RAINFALL:  Barry is expected to produce total rain accumulations of
10 to 20 inches over south-central and southeast Louisiana and
southwest Mississippi, with isolated maximum amounts of 25 inches.
Across the remainder of the Lower Mississippi Valley and western
portions of the Tennessee Valley, total rain accumulations of 4 to 8
inches are expected, with isolated maximum amounts of 12 inches.
This rainfall is expected to lead to dangerous, life threatening
flooding.

WIND:  Tropical storm conditions are occurring across the Hurricane
and Tropical Storm Warning areas to the east of the center.  Wind
gusts to tropical-storm force in squalls are possible along portions
of the coasts of Mississippi, Alabama, and the western Florida
Panhandle through tonight.

TORNADOES:  A few tornadoes are possible through tonight across
the southeast Louisiana, southern Mississippi, and southern Alabama

According to this news video from Germany, a lot of people did not trust the shelter in place instruction and thousands evacuated themselves.

A sorority canceled its convention because of Hurricane Barry. Members donated 17,000 meals to storm victims
By Michelle Lou, CNN

Updated 2:31 PM ET, Sat July 13, 2019

Many visitors to New Orleans this week have seen their trips cut short by the storm
(CNN)As Hurricane Barry approached Louisiana, Delta Sigma Theta sorority scrambled Friday to wrap up its national convention early to escape the storm's impacts in New Orleans.

But the service organization and its caterer, Centerplate, weren't about to let the meals that had been prepared for members go to waste.
The group donated 17,000 meals to the Second Harvest Food Bank of South Louisiana, which will store them in a cooler through the storm, and then give them to residents who weather Barry, the food bank said Friday in a Facebook post.

"We are delighted that Centerplate donated the food we purchased making it available as a result of us terminating our convention early," the sorority's national president and CEO, Beverly Smith, said in a statement. "With 16,000 attendees and two food functions canceled -- our Sisterhood Luncheon and closing Soiree Celebration -- there was inordinate amounts of food that would have been wasted. Kudos to Centerplate."
The convention was supposed to last until Sunday. Founded in 1913, Delta Sigma Theta is a predominantly black sorority with more than 200,000 members nationwide
