There's no water, no power and emergency officials have no access to many towns from the Florida Panhandle to Virginia.

The hurricane is the only storm in the Atlantic.

While search-and-rescue teams were having difficulty reaching some areas on Thursday, the extent of the damage is slowly becoming clear with the before and after images showing the severe destruction.

Rows and rows of other homes were reduced to piles of debris or crumpled and slumped at odd angles.

In Panama City, 20 miles (32 km) northwest of Mexico Beach, buildings were crushed and boats were scattered around.

Strong winds brought down trees and electricity lines leaving hundreds of thousands of residents without power. Michael left a trail of utility wires on roads, flattened tall pine trees and knocked a steeple from a church.

Almost 950,000 homes and businesses were without power in Florida, Alabama, the Carolinas and Georgia on yesterday.

- At least 11 deaths have been blamed on Michael, the most powerful hurricane to hit the continental U.S.in over 50 years. An 11-year-old girl in Georgia also died when Michael's winds picked up a carport and dropped it through the roof of her grandparents' home.

The injured in Florida were taken to hospitals in Tallahassee, with some hurt after the storm by breaking tree limbs and falls, said Allison Castillo, director of emergency services at the city's Capital Regional Medical Center.

Ahead of the storm's arrival, Governor Ralph Northam has declared a state of emergency in anticipation of its potential impacts.

As of Thursday, much of the Southeast U.S. was still being hammered by "heavy rains, blustery winds and possible spinoff tornadoes, soaking areas swamped by epic flooding last month from Hurricane Florence", according to The AP.
