Gadsden County Looks To Recovery After Hurricane Michael
Since October, more than 150,000 people have been without power in the Florida Panhandle after Hurricane Michael. Officials expected recovery efforts to extend into November, but as of today, the Panhandle is still facing issues.
Crossroads Academy Charter School in Quincy, Florida remained closed until early November. Teachers and students have been distributing hot meals and water to the community.
Principal Kevin Forehand partnered with the Salvation Army and Community Coffee to provide the community with a meal.
“It’s devastating to an already, um, disadvantaged community,” says Forehand. “People who have not planed, you know, for an additional grocery bill this month – that’s hard. That’s really hard.”
The Salvation Army is currently serving Wakulla, Gadsen and Leon counties. It is providing a variety of disaster services throughout Tallahassee and plans to work with all affected areas.
