PANAMA CITY, Fla. – Federal officials help Florida and other states to dig up the enormous damage of Hurricane Michael. On Friday it is too dangerous to return to areas that are flooded with storm surges such as Bay County.

Emergency teams are focused on restoring communication and transport. But Brock Long, head of the Federal Emergency Management Agency, said that debris and devastation of the storm in some areas prevents a safe return so far.
