"I mean there is devastation much like we saw in Mexico beach after hurricane Michael. serious devastation across those island and also after Marilla Porter Rico where you just see the rather imagery is just striking because you see entire force wiped out let me go to the hot line right now and joining us is lieutenant governor genet noon yes he can follow on Twitter for updates at L. T. G. O. V. at noon yes governor how are you I'm doing well how are you thank you so much for joining us what's the latest on the state response to hurricane Dorian. well you know we've been monitoring this very closely for several days now as the hurricane has slowed down to a crawl we continue to be vigilant in monitoring the impact the potential impact as it has continued trend northward we are really looking closely at the Cape Canaveral region in north Florida in particular the Jacksonville area with regard to potential flooding impact obviously beach erosion at the concern but we've been coronated very closely with our federal partners that we that would be easy my ministry today and the governor to fans of this really just been doing a great job to be prepared for the front end as well as whatever impact we're gonna have to feel it on the back overall the state has been spared the worst of what this storm has had to offer but have there been any unique challenges that have come along with the storm like this the just a lingers off the coast for such an extended period of time. what I would say is that the the challenge with a storm like this that has been so low is that people start to get impatient people start to let their guard down and so for areas that are under evacuation orders area on that are being the impact to the speech young people sometimes one o'clock sure some people sometimes wanna wanna maybe this regard those orders and so we want people to be safe that's our number one priority we understand it's been several days now and we can see your kids have to ask people to feed their local warning but as we continue to be the thing at all clearly materialized over the next twelve to twenty four hours on and will be able to send the damage potential impact and people can get on with their lives but our number one priority the people of the state state. lieutenant governor in terms of any damage or anything substantial it's happening from the storm so far have you heard reports of power outages that have that have started probably I would imagine in the the Palm Beach county area are you in a wrong space coast. there are some around edges it's not at a critical level right now and we have so many athletes and plays with the power companies in particular F. PNL which has the vast majority of those affected coastal areas in terms of their clients they've been able to to address and deal with them quickly but certainly there will be continued power outages we expect with the winds and and the band as we continue to look at the storm track of what we understand that there's going to be areas that will have plenty of time to plan anyway so certainly with the storm surge we just again we want people to remain vigilant because while the worst is over but we still are not off the hook completely and again we want people to be safe we want them to keep their local orders.

Residents are struggling with a re balancing act rebuilding to stricter standards that can guard against future storms while not increasing costs so much that they drive away. Homeowners who give the town its character Wall Street Journal reporter Riyan Kemble Florus paid a visit are we on? What did you see? Right. Where her Michael hit? It was stated of, you know, much of the town was wiped out minute homes, which were older construction decades-old places for just completely flat. And so they've got a very difficult and challenging rebuilding causes that they're undertaking. And one of the sort of main themes that that I came away with is that they are struggling to strike this balance whereby they can. They need to build back a more resilient town than to beef up their their standards that in the new structures are going to be able to withstand storms and yet not imposed so many new requirements that they would essentially price out a lot of the people who currently afford can afford to live there. And this is the place that you know, has really prided itself. And in the character that it has that it's not a big modern sort of luxury development kinda town. It's like an old Florida place where people have been coming for years the place where you know, retirees or former teachers or firefighters or military folks were you know, able to afford a place close to the beach, and they want to be able to preserve so one couple you spoke to I know said in. Sure gave them about one hundred ten thousand dollars. But that wasn't quite enough. They need like another one hundred ten thousand dollars, which means tapping retirement savings, and they thought jeez this worth it. If we're going to have to do this, again, another monster storm is the second of a common theme. Yeah. People are really having to make that calculation difficult. One still waiting on their insurance payout. So they don't know exactly what they have to work with. But then when you add in. If your home is completely destroyed you have to abide by of some new standards that were put in place and those include raising the elevator of some homes. That's a pretty costly endeavor for some some properties. And so people really need to figure out something that they're willing to to to to undertake. Is clearly yes, they're gonna be if they need to take out a loan or they need to tap retirement money, other saving to do it. They will because they love the town.

"First time we've talked about this here in the new year. But it's important that we keep those people are fellow Floridians up in the panhandle in mind as they continue to recover from that massive storm joining us on the hotline right now, we have spectrum thirteen news reporter Aaron Murray who you can follow on Twitter at e Murray one she's co hosting hurricane Michael Florida impact alive townhall airing tomorrow at seven PM on spectrum bay news nine Aaron how are you? I'm doing well. Ryan, thank you so much and to be talking with you tonight. I really appreciate you taking the time to spend a few minutes with us. So you're in in Mexico beach right now, you're gonna be doing the town hall live from Mexico beach tomorrow night. What are you seeing there? How is the recovery progressing? What has stood out to you? So far, I'm looking at your Twitter feed. And I've seen some of the pictures, and you know, it's hard to believe that this is current day, panhandle and current day, Mexico beach. It looks like something it looks like the hurricane just hit. And it does look that is exactly the feeling when you come back here we were here days before the storm. We were here during the storm, and then after you know for a week, and then we left, and then we came back photographer night about a week and a half ago. And then he had that exact same feeling he and I had that moment several times in each city. We came to each other and said, it looks if you can see progress don't get me wrong. I'm not saying nothing being done. But. Really feels when you come to the really hard hit areas here in Mexico beach. If you just showed up today, you would think or hurricane hit yesterday. I really encourage everybody. If you get a chance check out e Murray one on Twitter because you could see the pictures there really striking the recovery up there and the progression since the storm hits. What are the residents up there saying about it are they frustrated did they realize afterwards? This was going to be a long process, and they're they're okay with how things have progressed up to this point. What's the general feeling among people you've talked to? I mean, the thing about it is that there's so many things to process with a hurricane. This is when it comes to an answer the first part of your question. You know, are they kinda grasping it or they okay with it. I think this hurricane and we've I know we've all talked about this. It started out not a huge, hurricane cat, one cat two. And then within twenty four to forty eight hours all of a sudden became that, huge cat four. And so I think no I don't think that they were ready for a hurricane the size. So does in the recovery. It is very frustrating because it decimated this area in such a huge way because the infrastructure here. Really couldn't handle it. Plain and simple, the homes that were built fifty sixty seventy s or just gone and that's frustrating. And and soon when you come into hurricane like, this are just are slow because you know, insurance and FEMA and while they're all working, there's just so many. There's not one person it hasn't made a call to their insurance. There's not one person isn't in need FEMA. And so when you have that amount of people calling in it, it just is. So so in three months later, people are still not in their homes are not going to be in their homes for several more months. Some people might not even come back to their home. I mean for almost a year, it's really that bad up here. Seeing these images are there a lot of people out and about I mean, do you see a lot of people in Mexico beach because it looks like it's almost inhabitable still Mexico beach is really a. It's on a different level, obviously than if we talked about Panama City are Lynn haven or some of those others next because if you do see people, but no not necessarily I huge number of people living here. There are a lot of people here during the daylight hours working. I mean, that's predominantly what you see are people clearing debris out of the way, and that's not so much rebuilding but just clearing out and then trying to get things ready for that rebuild. And then you're seeing some workers and things backing there's only three restaurants here. You know that are functioning and one is out of a food truck in a tense. I mean, not people aren't all back in their homes. I mean, there's a few who did speak to one gentleman who literally had a house that was on the beachside literally get picked up by the surge pushed into his home. I mean, he just helped him all that last week. And so he's been staying in a camper behind his home it. So you see a lot of that people are avian campers or they're staying rental. You know, fifteen miles away and then coming in for the day trying to do the work. So there's people here during the daylight hours. Once it gets dark it is. I mean, they're they're all police around her the sheriff's offices around and things like that ghost town say, but right, it isn't that wants to get started. Here. We're talking to spectrum thirteen news reporter Aaron Murray. She's coasting. Hurricane Michael Florida impact. A live town hall airing tomorrow at seven PM on spectrum bay news nine so what are the big issues? Those in the panhandle are currently facing. The big thing is coming obviously coming back from this going trying to get that insurance trying to get any kind of money to rebuild because it's not just a few thousand dollars. You know, or there is everything that you own might all be gone. And then it's also, you know, rebuilding these things to in hopes that if something else were to happen like this again that it could withstand that and then Finally, I guess just looking out especially from Arthur selective looking at it from a state wide perspective in that. If this hit somewhere else are we ready for it? And honestly, my answer to that after going through this is I think you'd be hard pressed to find almost anywhere. They could take the hurricane the size of coaching Michael and be okay after it right in different areas lead to different challenges. I mean here in the Tampa Bay area if we got hit by something like hurricane Michael have some some serious problems. There have been studies done on how catastrophic something like that would be. There were articles written before hurricane Irma about how catastrophic that would be. So so, you know, there there is more preparation. That I think we can do across the state including here in central Florida. But there's only so much. You can do if you're facing something like what the panhandle faced what are some of the lessons learned, especially among our political leaders from hurricane Michael that you've been hearing. I think the big thing is also. Yeah. Trying to get people out. There's always that fight. I know nobody ever wants to stay. But that is such so many resources have to be post towards the rescue and recovery after. So I think that's one of the things we talked to with some of the local leaders here. Maybe doing a more efficient job of trying to get everybody to go and understand when you have a hurricane that size. Your presence isn't going to change anything, you know, it's better to just go. So that they don't have to worry about. Is there a body in there? And and things like that. You know, the other thing too is I think the rebuild. It's just hoping that when contractors, you know, they're really cracking down on unlicensed and all the things that make sure Wendy things are we dealt their rebuilt in a way that could withstand something even if it hits sixty years from now that will still be able to take you know, wins that strong because that was the problem with this hurricane while the flooding in the surgeons a huge problem the wind you just did so much damage here. And not those are things that they're really looking at. Now, we're talking to spectrum thirteen news reporter Aaron Murray here on PM Tampa Bay can follow her on Twitter at e Murray. One what is the sense like among people, you talk to you in the panhandle in terms of rebuilding and making a place like Mexico beach. Once again, what it once was. Oh, certainly heard the stories of people that aren't coming back. But the ones that are here right now. I mean, they're not leaving. They still view the sunset here is it's still beautiful beautiful place. And so they don't want to lose here. They this is their home. Some people have been through their whole lives only, maybe, you know, come down in their later years. But either way to the people that are here right now, they're they're here to stay. So they do plan on rebuilding. So there is that you know, when we were here during the hurricane it was that sense of like shocking on now, it's like pure determination. I mean people I think still come maybe knows weird times. But they are purely right now on the war passage tried to get get everything knocked down get everything cleared out and and built the right way. So they're very determined. I know, you know, I want to touch on one thing because you asked about city leaders and come back that one big thing too. When we were talking, for example, like lemonade and the cities are struggling with their budgets. Because some of the. Example, debris just the cost of getting debris out of here is going to be more than the entire budget of the city of Lynn haven. Exactly. And so that's just a brain. That's not paying their workers doing anything else. And so it also testing team is that you have to pay the money before you get refunded the money. So when you already have bills that are more than your yearly budget coming because of hurricane Michael, those are the problems that they're trying to solve right now and find ways to work out and talk to you know, leaders to find new avenues and things. But that that's another big struggle that I know the city leaders here are dealing with that is just pain, very painful for them to go through. And it says are you hearing any kind of a timeline or timeframe as to win the majority of the debris will be picked up. And and a lot of the rebuild will really be underway. I think in areas like, Panama City, Lynn haven. I think he could probably see a lot of it. You know, another three months, and I think a lot of the debris maybe a little bit longer than that might might be while handle here in Mexico beach. I couldn't even begin to get out. Bad here. Yeah. Finally, we're talking to Aaron Murray. Spectrum thirteen news reporter, she's gonna be coasting. Hurricane Michael Florida impact alive townhall airing tomorrow at seven PM on spectrum bay news nine how can people around the state including here in the Tampa Bay area? Help are there still resources out there that are needed in the panhandle that people who aren't living there can assist with? What is that is my favorite question? And I'm so glad you asked it because that is probably the most important thing here because it's so forget, even when we left to go back to our day to day lives. But yes, there are ways to help. And while I do think, you know, big organizations like red crossings are great. I would highly recommend going local cities, Mexico beach Lynn haven, Panama City, you can go right to their city website. And there are we'll leave that those pounds has set up for the money goes directly to the people in their city, for example, maybe even taking over a hundred thousand. Dopplers that was last week. They've given out then one hundred one thousand dollar grants to people in their city, and it's not a complicated application to you know, two pages. So they're easy for people here to fill out and get access to this money, and it goes directly to them. So I mean three websites you can go to right away. Just Google Mexico Beach, Florida, Panama City, com, afford, Lynn, even com. Afforded pull up there any websites, and they're all right there.

Michael gone but leaves behind utter devastation in Panhandle

"To go in depth now with NBC News Radio is Michael Bauer. Michael the the totality of damage that we're seeing now with hurricane Michael, particularly in the panhandle. But not limited to just the panhandle is breathtaking in its scope. It is breathtaking. It's devastating. It's it's sad to watch. And there's a certain element of this crazy calmness. When you're looking at the footage of Mexico beach, and the devastation therein in and just slab were a home used to be another slab where a home used to be. And then you're seeing off to the side. Just the remnants of those homes pushed up against condo buildings or apartment buildings boats in the middle of road, just the emptiness. And then there's. This blue sky in the waves coming up in a beautiful fashion that that dichotomy is just it's shaking to a lot of people overseeing here, we also know that it's a very limited scope of people who can get into those areas, and that's just one portion of it. We're looking at Mexico beached. It's kind of. Apocalyptic destruction right now, I hap- expecting Rick Grimes and Mishaan from the Walking Dead to come out and start fighting zombies. It look that devastated. And that's just a portion of neighborhoods that people are trying to get through and clean up. At this point. Joe we're still looking at neighborhoods that first responders and emergency crews haven't been able to get to yet. And that's the big story here. There's a huge cleanup. That's underway. That's going to take a long time to get there. And governor Rick Scott, telling everybody, listen right now, no reason for you to try to hurry back to your homes to see how everything is let us get things cleaned up before anybody starts making their way out of any shelter. Honestly, why go back? There's nothing to go back to this point them. Get the bulldozers out there to bulldoze everything guys start with a fresh canvas. And if you're gonna rebuild let's bulldoze everything I and get the canvas ready for something like that. Because it is just an utter mess. It is strange to see just these empty empty cement palace were homes used to be. And then they're still standing home for some reason this home built better get got hit the right way, and then other areas right next to it. Where homes are gone. I mean, literally does look like it's mostly leveled. So why not go in there and level the rest of it?
