Members from South Florida Task Force search a flattened home destroyed by Hurricane Michael in Mexico Beach, Fla., Friday, Oct. 12, 2018, after Hurricane Michael went through the area on Wednesday.

Thousands of law enforcement officers, firefighters, power crews, National Guard troops, and volunteers have descended on Florida's Panhandle and Big Bend to help those affected by the monster storm, officials said. "Some it'll probably take weeks or months to get online".

Rescue teams, hampered by power and telephone outages, were going door to door and using cadaver dogs, drones and heavy equipment to hunt for people in the rubble in Mexico Beach and other Florida coastal communities, such as Port St Joe and Panama City. "Everything's gone. I didn't even know our road was our road", said Tiffany Marie Plushnik, 25, an evacuee who returned to find her home in Sandy Creek too damaged to live in. "So I can't sell it now", retiree Bob Tenbrunson told AFP.

Margaret Decambre, a 48-year-old gemologist, rode out the storm in her Panama City fourth-floor condo with her husband and three cats.

Aluminium siding was shredded and homes were split by fallen trees.

Hurricane Michael is no more. Her husband's body was still trapped in the rubble.

"I'm homeless", said nursing assistant Carla Covington, 45, who is caring for her mother and two children after their house was destroyed by falling trees.
