Hurricane Michael roared across the Florida panhandle leaving behind a swath of destruction of historic proportions. The death toll has grown to 19, and more than 435,000 homes are still without power. First responders are still assessing the damage in many communities.
Panama City Beach had never experienced a storm as powerful as Michael. The hurricane left the city in shambles. Both local hospitals were severely damaged. Those who did not evacuate or left a car behind lost their vehicle when Michael slammed ashore. Their ability to reach a physician, or a pharmacy to get medication has been hampered. Could you imagine not being able to pick up a critically-needed prescription?
