At least 13 people are confirmed to have died in Hurricane Michael—the most powerful hurricane to hit the continental U.S. in five decades. One of the dead has been named as 11-year-old girl Sarah Radney, who died in a freak accident after a carport slammed into the roof of her house. Many are learning the extent of the damage to their homes today, with many having been obliterated by 155 mph winds. More than 900,000 homes and businesses in Florida, Alabama, Georgia, and the Carolinas were without power as of Friday morning, and thousands of National Guard troops, law-enforcement officers and rescue teams are working to help those affected in the Florida Panhandle. There are fears the death toll will rise when rescue teams manage to reach areas blocked off by storm debris.
