A week after Hurricane Michael more than a 1,000 people still missing

Thursday 13:35 GMT

More than a thousand people were still missing on Wednesday a week after Hurricane Michael flattened communities across the Florida Panhandle, killing at least 27.

Before-and-after photos show how Hurricane Michael laid waste to a Florida beach community. Most of those missing are from Panama City and many are elderly, disabled, impoverished, or live alone, Marchetti said. Teams made up of hundreds of volunteers with the Houston-based CrowdSource Rescue organization were searching for more than1,135 people in Florida who lost contact with friends and family, Matthew Marchetti, co-founder of Houston-based CrowdSource Rescue.
