A look back on Hurricane Michael
Channel 7 anchor Paris Janos was at Bay County’s Emergency Operations Center as the storm approached on the morning of October 10th. After a wind warning was issued for the Panhandle, he told viewers, “stay safe, please be safe where you are right now, there’s no reason to get out on the roads, there’s no reason to be out anyway.”
As Channel 7 states in this recap, a wind warning only gets issued when wind speeds are expected to be over 110 miles per hour.
For the next few hours, residents across the panhandle waited for the storm to pass while holding on to their loved ones.
When the storm was gone, residents took stock in what mattered the most due to the damage being so impactful. They had each other. In areas too heavily damaged, residents were air-lifted as they were not able to get out on their own.
The work is not over, and the recovery process will take years; in fact, locals are pushing for Hurricane Michael to be labeled a category five. Although residents remain hopeful, there’s still the frustration of dealing with the restoration process.
