Tallahassee Mayor Andrew Gillum is temporarily stopping his gubernatorial campaign activities to focus on assisting in recovery from Hurricane Michael, canceling a debate with Republican nominee Ron DeSantis that was to take place in Orlando next week.

At least 18 people have died, and more than 1,500 are informally missing as a result of Hurricane Michael, which made landfall in the Florida panhandle on Wednesday as a Category 4 storm, carrying sustained winds of 155 miles per hour.

"Crews have encountered numerous downed trees, broken poles, flooded roads and saturated rights of way, slowing progress in some locations", the power provider said in a news release, adding that some remaining locations "will require significant repairs on lines that are hard to access".

Barker, who served 22 years in the U.S. Navy before retiring in 2011, his wife, Jacqui, and their teenaged daughter, Jenna, live in Panama City Beach, Florida. The storm also killed four people in Florida, one in Georgia and three in North Carolina, authorities said.

President Donald Trump pledged to help storm victims.

"We are not completely done".

Hundreds of thousands are left without electricity, and emergency officials have no access to many towns.

At least 12 people were killed in the states of Florida, Georgia, North Carolina and Virginia as Hurricane Michael continues its rampage after it slammed into Florida's northwest coast on Friday, officials said.

Michael has since been downgraded to a tropical storm as it moves through the Carolinas, which are still recovering from last month's Hurricane Florence. Despite the destruction, the Rev. Luke Farabaugh and his congregation celebrated Mass on Thursday. Roads were impassable and canals were choked with debris.

In Mexico Beach, which suffered the full wrath of Michael's intense winds and catastrophic storm surges, rescue teams have no choice but to rely on satellite phones.

"You feel sorry for people", Scott said. The surge had brought stuff in.

In nearby Panama City, Fla., few homes were destroyed but almost all were damaged.

An MH-65 Dolphin helicopter and crew, from Mobile, Alabama, rushed to Panama City on Wednesday to rescue the unidentified woman after she survived the devastation Hurricane Michael.

McPherson and her husband spend Thursday searching for her. Water rose almost to the top of his garage door. "We had probably about half an inch of water on my floor and no way to stop it from coming in. This is obviously the worst", said Stephanie Palmer, a FEMA firefighter and rescuer from Coral Springs, Fla. But he said maintenance issues delayed leaving port and by the time crews had cobbled together the necessary fixes “the hurricane was too close for us to run away from it.”. "Yes, it is all about helping others".

Federal Emergency Management Agency Administrator Brock Long had expected the death toll to rise from 13 people on Friday, mostly from trees falling onto houses.

Michael barrelled across the southern USA on Wednesday (Oct. 10), beginning the day as a Category 4 hurricane and rapidly losing wind strength as it traveled.

Fast-moving Michael, a Category 4 storm on the five-step Saffir-Simpson hurricane scale when it came ashore, was about 25 kilometres northeast of Norfolk, Va, at 10 p.m. ET, with top sustained winds of 80 km/h as it headed for the Atlantic coast, the U.S. National Hurricane Center said.
