Two people, including a child, were killed by falling debris, the U.S. media reported on Thursday.

Florida Gov. Rick Scott said search and rescue teams are heading into the state's hardest-hit areas to help survivors of Hurricane Michael.

"It wasn't until we hit the eyewall that things kind of got a little dicey", he said. "It's just how do we get together, how do we recover?"

No other deaths have been reported in Georgia as of yet, although the hurricane caused widespread destruction and killed others across Florida. "Those numbers could climb", he said.

The devastation inflicted by Hurricane Michael came into focus Thursday with rows upon rows of homes found smashed to pieces, and search crews began making their way into the stricken areas in hopes of accounting for hundreds of people who may have defied evacuation orders. But the early indicators are troubling. What used to be a gorgeous beachfront city now looks like an apocalyptic mess.

They also said that the hurricane could apply some pressure to reinsurers, although given the broad use of retrocession, capital markets protection and also the extremely well-capitalised nature of the market right now, this does not seem that likely to pressure anyone but the weakest and most catastrophe exposed of reinsurance firms. As the Washington Post's Capital Weather Gang noted, "he is not prone to hyperbole".

"For North Carolina, Michael isn't as bad as Florence, but it adds unwelcome insult to injury, so we must be on alert", Governor Roy Cooper said.

Numerous injured in Florida were taken to hard-hit Panama City, 20 miles (32 km) northwest of Mexico Beach.

"It's absolutely horrendous. Catastrophic", Crown said. "Truly devastated. Some buildings completely swept clean - only slabs".

Emergency officials struggled to reach the family due to severe damage in the area from Hurricane Michael.

- Top winds: 155 miles per hour (250 kph), strong enough to completely destroy homes and cause weekslong power outages.

It weakened overnight to a tropical storm. Michael is expected to dump up to 7 inches of rain in parts of North Carolina and Virginia, the National Hurricane Center said.

"The center of Michael is now moving into south-central Georgia".

Michael's strength may reflect the effect of climate change on storms. Torrential rainfall is expected along the northeastern Gulf Coast.

Cook grew up in Robertsdale, Alabama, a city of roughly 5,200 people located roughly halfway between Mobile and Pensacola, Florida.

- The human cost: Falling trees have killed a man in Gadsden County, Florida; a man in Iredell County, North Carolina; and an 11-year-old girl in Seminole County, Georgia, was killed when a carport blew through the roof of her home. Four pine trees had crashed through the roof of her apartment, almost hitting two people.

The tropical storm is located about 30 miles (45 km) south-southwest of Macon, Georgia with maximum sustained winds of 70 miles per hour (115 km per hour), the NHC said in its 12 am EDT position update.

Michael is shaking up the upcoming election in the battleground state of Florida. If the Waffle House hasn't reopened after the storm, FEMA considers that a sign that the area has experienced major devastation. It was a clear warning that the storm should be taken seriously.

On Wednesday afternoon, the storm landed northwest of Mexico Beach, Florida.

"It's bad", he said.

Entire blocks of homes near the beach were obliterated, reduced to nothing but concrete slabs in the sand.

"It feels like a nightmare", she said. But that didn't stop the journalists from getting the report out. And she estimated that it would take the same amount of time to fix the damage - possibly months or even a year. The station's awning had crashed to the ground. "It feels like you don't know when the next tree is going to fall on top of you because it's blowing so ferociously", he said by telephone.

The first confirmed fatality of the storm was recorded Wednesday. Sgt. Angela Hightower did not identify the man but said he had been found at the home in Greensboro around 6 p.m.
