Reuters reports that rescuers are looking for survivors in Mexico Beach, Florida.
The beach town is considered “Ground Zero” of Hurricane Michael’s onslaught.
The tiny tourist town in northwest Florida took a direct hit from its 155-mph winds.
The storm left a stark scene of devastation on Thursday.
Entire blocks of two-story beach homes were razed to their tile floors.
This was likely a result of the storm surge, recorded at up to 9 feet.
Furniture, dishes and water tanks were cast onto roads and yards. Pine trees were flattened.
The search party scoured the scene for hundreds of people who defied evacuation orders.
Army personnel used heavy equipment to push a path through debris.
Blackhawk helicopters circled overhead looking for survivors.
At least six deaths, including four in Florida, have been blamed on Michael.
Michael was the third-most powerful hurricane ever to hit the U.S. mainland.
