Hurricane Michael made landfall near Mexico Beach, Florida on October 10th, 2018. Michael made landfall as a Category 4 hurricane, with maximum sustained winds of 155 mph. The third most intense Atlantic Hurricane to make landfall in the United States, Michael broke wind speed records as the strongest storm on record to hit the Florida Panhandle. As Michael tracked across the Southeastern United States, strong winds caused 1.2 million power outages across the region, with power failing in Florida, Alabama, Georgia, Virginia, South Carolina and North Carolina. Sadly, 35 individuals lost their lives as a result of the storm.
Assessing the immense and widespread destruction of the storm, our Hurricane Michael Rapid Response team jumped into action. We are working in Bay and Calhoun Counties, withthe majority of our work focused just outside Youngstown, Florida. Our work is currently focused on Chainsawing and Tree Work, Debris Removal, Mucking and Gutting, Mold Sanitation and Residential Flood Cleanup.
