Hurricane Michael made landfall in the Florida Panhandle on Wednesday as a Category 4 hurricane, the strongest on record to hit the area and charged north through Georgia and into the Carolinas and Virginia, wreaking havoc and causing emergencies.

Further details were not immediately available.

"People have no idea how hard Hurricane Michael has hit the great state of Georgia", Trump tweeted.

According to officials, at least 17 deaths have been confirmed in a swath of destruction stretching across the states of Florida, North Carolina, Georgia and Virginia. "We still haven't gotten into some of the hardest-hit areas".

Coastal cities in Florida have been destroyed with flooding and homes and businesses ripped apart from the storm packing 155 miles per hour winds, 2 miles per hour shy of a Category 5 storm, three days ago.

Michael leaves trail of devastation in US MEXICO BEACH Search and rescue teams faced a second day of sifting through the ruined landscape left by Hurricane Michael on Friday as the death toll rose to 11.

The storm, one of the most powerful hurricanes in US history, continued to cut a destructive path as a tropical storm, having weakened after lashing Georgia and North Carolina.

"We do know that there has been damage to several of our church buildings", Kendrick said.

The Houston-based volunteer search-and-rescue network CrowdSource Rescue said its teams were trying to find about 2,100 people either reported missing or stranded and in need of help in Florida, co-founder Matthew Marchetti said.

She said local television stations were knocked off the air for two days, and authorities were relying on the radio station of the Gulf Coast State College to broadcast public service bulletins.

In its violent battering of the southeastern U.S., Hurricane Michael left floodwaters, wind-wrecked buildings and power outages in its wake.

The number of people in emergency shelters was expected to swell to 20,000 across five states by Friday, said Brad Kieserman of the American Red Cross. The rest of Mexico Beach did not fare as well, and most of the beachfront homes, restaurants and stores were obliterated by the storm.

The camp ground had been full just before Michael blew in and covered it in 61 cm of debris and seaweed, McMillan said.

Nearly 1.2 million homes and businesses were without power from Florida to Virginia on Thursday.

Bob Tenbrunson, a Mexico Beach retiree, rode out the storm at his daughter's house in nearby Panama City and returned to survey the damage to his home. It looked a couple of days ago like it was not going to be much, and now it's looking like it could be a very big one, so we're prepared. "It was bad, and now there's just nothing left".
