Many still missing after Florida hurricane

As residents pick up the pieces after Hurricane Michael, and teams comb through rubble in search of survivors, authorities say it could be weeks or months before a sense of normalcy returns to storm-ravaged Florida.

Police and firefighters continue to search for hundreds of people reported missing in the wake of Hurricane Michael’s devastating winds and storm surge.

Teams have found 520 people but more than 1,500 are still missing, though plans to set up a makeshift mortuary in Seminole County have been scrapped, leading to speculation that the death toll is unlikely to rise dramatically.

Rescue workers are using “cadaver dogs, drones, and heavy equipment” to search for survivors, Reuters reported.

Officials say at least 18 people have died in Florida, Virginia, North Carolina and Georgia.
