"This is obviously the worst", said Stephanie Palmer, a FEMA firefighter and rescuer from Coral Springs, Florida.

At least six deaths were blamed on Michael, the most powerful hurricane to hit the continental U.S.in over 50 years, and by early Friday it wasn't over yet: a tropical storm long after Wednesday's landfall, Michael stubbornly kept up its punch while barrelling up the Southeast, dumping heavy rains and spreading flash flooding misery as far away as Virginia.

Michael Williams, 70, looks for help from passing motorists as downed trees prevent him from driving out of his damaged home in the aftermath of Hurricane Michael with his family in Springfield, Fla., on Thursday. - Residential neighborhoods are lined with trees. "It was scary, but it could have been a lot worse".

As of Thursday evening, more than 370,000 customers were without power in Florida and 202,000 customers in Virginia were in the dark.

"The big problem with this hurricane was the tremendous power, and fortunately it was very fast", Mr. Trump told reporters the Oval Office.

"I have had employees going to the communities where our kids live, going door to door and checking", Principal Britt Smith by phone.

Gov. Rick Scott announced afterward that thousands of law enforcement officers, utility crews and search and rescue teams would now go into recovery mode.

A National Guard team got into Mexico Beach and found 20 survivors overnight, and more crews were pushing into the area in the morning, with the fate of many residents unknown, authorities said. The storm tore entire neighbourhoods apart, reducing homes and businesses to piles of wood. "But I have reasons to believe - we haven't gotten into some of the hardest hit areas, particularly the Mexico Beach area". "It has been a year effort and I just didn't know what to do", Sydni Troupe said. "[But] we have to make sure things are safe".

Craig Fugate, former director of the Federal Emergency Management Agency and a former emergency management chief for the state of Florida, said "this is what we expect with storm surge and high wind events".

"We were actually estimating about twice if not three times that amount being out as a result of the system", said Mr.

Long expressed worry that people have suffered "hurricane amnesia". "That is some good news, but for those half-million people that don't have power, we understand the frustration and we're doing everything we can".

"People have no idea how hard Hurricane Michael has hit the great state of Georgia", Trump tweeted. All three were Category 5 hurricanes.

Michael was the most intense hurricane to strike the Florida Panhandle since record keeping began in 1851.

At the National Hurricane Center, as the storm's growing power was becoming clear, one forecaster wrote that its rapid intensification in the face of unfavorable high-altitude winds "defies traditional logic".

"This was a success for modern technology", said Roger A. Pielke Sr., University of Colorado Boulder meteorologist. Numerous 600 families who live there had followed orders to pack what they could in a single suitcase as they were evacuated ahead of the storm.

Jordon Tood, 31, a charter boat captain in Port St. Joe, said: "There were mandatory evacuation orders, but only idiots like us stuck around".

"I think that we had an exceptionally high rate of evacuees because we had the message, we kept putting it out", Sheriff Smith told Fox's "Your World with Neil Cavuto". "If it's to keep people warm, we'll keep people warm". While forecasting a storm's path requires broad information on large-scale factors around a storm, such as winds and air pressure, forecasts of intensity require detailed, specific data from the most violent part of a hurricane's interior, not the easiest place to do science.
