Storm Michael floods cause chaos in North Carolina

While search-and-rescue teams were having difficulty reaching some areas on Thursday, the extent of the damage is slowly becoming clear with the before and after images showing the severe destruction.

Homes and other buildings were left in pieces, while concrete foundations are all that remain of other structures that were entirely washed away by the hurricane's storm surge. A few blocks inland, about half the homes were reduced to piles of wood and siding and those still standing had suffered heavy damage. That would allow VDOT and utility crews faster access to and work at clearing the roads of downed trees and power lines.

Hundreds of cars had broken windows and twisted street signs lay on the ground.

Gulf Coast Regional Medical Centre in hard-hit Panama City, 32km northwest of Mexico Beach, was treating some of the injured.

On the forecast track, Michael was expected to head northeast through Georgia, South Carolina, North Carolina and Virginia on Thursday as a tropical storm.

Almost 950,000 homes and businesses were without power in Florida, Alabama, the Carolinas and Georgia on yesterday. A year ago the school welcomed students and families displaced by Hurricane Maria in Puerto Rico.

Michael, one of the most powerful hurricanes to hit the United States, left the East Coast early Friday morning. An 11-year-old girl in Georgia also died when Michael's winds picked up a carport and dropped it through the roof of her grandparents' home.

A Florida man was killed when a tree crashed through his home in Greensboro and trapped him, according to Gadsden County Sheriff's Office spokeswoman Anglie Hightower. Isolated areas could get 9 inches and life-threatening flash floods.
