MEMA Director Kurt Schwartz said in a press release: "Just as other states have responded to our requests through EMAC to bolster our disaster response and recovery operations in MA, including the response to the September 2018 natural gas pipeline incident in the greater Lawrence area, we are able to support Florida as it deals with the impacts of Hurricane Michael".
"We have been hit by the weather, there is no question about it", he said.
On the Panhandle, Tyndall Air Force Base "took a beating", so much so that Colonel Brian Laidlaw told the 3,600 men and women stationed on the base not to come back.
With top sustained winds of 155 miles per hour (250 kph), Michael hit the Florida Panhandle as a Category 4 hurricane on the five-step Saffir-Simpson scale.
Among the hardest hit areas was Mexico Beach, a Florida Panhandle town that Governor Scott said now resembles a war zone. At the White House, on his way to Marine One, he was pressed on the disappearance of Jamal Khashoggi. But the severity of the damage worsened as Trump approached the town of Mexico Beach. Debris was everywhere. Near Mexico Beach, a water tower lay on its side and trucks were scattered like toys in a parking lot.
"It's hard to believe". Mr. Trump even suggested "rogue killers" could be behind Khashoggi's disappearance - he was last seen entering the Saudi consulate in Turkey - before adding that he didn't know. "To see this, personally, it's very tough".
"If we lose only one life, to me that's going to be a miracle", said Mexico Beach Mayor Al Cathey.
The aftermath of the monster hurricanecould have effects beyond the Sunshine State Senate race, but the day-to-day effects have been most pronounced in Florida. That's in addition to about 120,000 in Georgia, where Trump arrived later Monday afternoon and planned to survey hurricane damage.
"I would say every single school in Bay County has some type of damage, some more extensive than others", said Steve Moss, vice chairman of the Bay District School Board. "Everybody has been incredible".
