Five deaths were reported in Virginia, in addition to four in Florida, one in Georgia and one in North Carolina.

"If you decide to stay in your home and a tree falls on your house or the storm surge catches you and you're now calling for help, there's no one that can respond to help you", Mr Morgan said at a news conference.

"Hope is that even if the storm does come, even if I lose my vehicle, my house, my family, even if I lose my life, blessed be God", he said. Around the same time, Virginia's emergency agency said more than 446,000 customers had no electricity. This hurricane was an absolute monster.

The full extent of Michael's fury was only slowly becoming clear, with some of the hardest-hit areas difficult to reach with roads blocked by debris or water. An 80-mile (130-kilometer) stretch of Interstate 10, the main east-west route along the Panhandle, was closed.

Entire blocks of homes near the beach were obliterated, reduced to concrete slabs in the sand. Zahralban said searchers were trying to determine if that person had been alone or was part of a family. "So I followed the mandatory evacuation order and left with my wife".

In his letter posted on the base's website, Laidlaw says crews need to clear trees from roads, fix power lines and "assess the structural integrity of our buildings" before anyone returns. Some people are expected to remain in shelters through the weekend as river levels go down.

"It's OK if you want to live on the coast or on top of a mountain that sees wildfires or whatever, but you have to build to a higher standard", he said.

"Things, we can replace", he said.

More than 900,000 homes and businesses in Florida, Alabama, Georgia and the Carolinas are without power in the wake of Hurricane Michael.

Aja Kemp, 36, planned to stay in her mobile home in Crawfordville.

Florida officials also said they were moving patients from damaged health care facilities.

One of the fiercest hurricanes to ever strike the United States, Michael and its sustained winds up to 155 miles per hour utterly transformed the coast of Florida's Panhandle, where it crashed ashore. It was moving at 21 miles per hour (33 kmh).

Given Michael's enormous strength, with winds reaching almost Category 5, some people were willing to count their blessings. She was safe until a carport came crashing through the roof.

Standing in what was once the parish hall of St. Dominic Catholic Church in Panama City, the Rev. Luke Farabaugh spoke of the importance of having gratitude amid the devastation.

Many homes have also been demolished, including one where a tree was uprooted and crashed through the brick wall of a bedroom. Roofs had been peeled off and carried away. Aluminum siding was shredded and homes were split by fallen trees.

Hundreds of residents were rescued Thursday from cars, apartments and homes flooded by rushing water. Twisted street signs lay on the ground. Pine trees were stripped and snapped off about 20 feet (7 meters) high. "For me the cotton crop is as bad as it gets".

On Wednesday morning, National Weather Service meteorologist Jonathan Lamb said Michael's overnight strengthening was unusual based on precedent.

"It was terrifying, honestly". "We have done everything we can as far as getting the word out", Smith said.

"Don't think that you can ride this out if you're in a low-lying area", Nelson said on CNN. A house on the highway.

Numerous damaged Florida buildings were not built to withstand a storm above the strength of a Category 3 hurricane on the five-level Saffir-Simpson Hurricane Wind Scale, Long added. Several storm surge and tropical storm watches and warnings remain active for parts of SC and North Carolina.
