Hurricane Michael was the first Category 5 hurricane to strike the contiguous United States since Andrew in 1992. In addition, it was the third-most intense Atlantic hurricane to make landfall in the contiguous United States in terms of pressure, behind the 1935 Labor Day hurricane and Hurricane Camille of 1969.

Winds and storm surge caused "devastating to catastrophic damage" in Bay County, Florida, the report said. More than 45,000 structures were damaged and more than 1,500 destroyed in the county, including severe damage to two hospitals.

Rebuilding housing stock through HUD grants takes years to complete. The needs of the hurricane-affected region are much more urgent. It is very difficult to find any hotel rooms for workers to come and help repair and rebuild. If you don't get housing up, we can't get workforces. And if we don't get workforces, we can't get the economy going. If we can't get the economy going, we can't get housing going."

The area's economic recovery also depends on the reconstruction of Tyndall Air Force Base. Counting active duty service members, retirees and their dependents, Tyndall accounts for more than 10% of Bay County's population and drives one-third of the county's economy, according to officials."This area was already in some cases depressed economically. The storms made it worse," says Fugate, the former FEMA administrator. "Just rebuilding from the disaster will not ensure this community recovers."

Habitat for Humanity of Bay County Florida

We are asking for any donations to help rebuild homes and the lives of the people that were left without anything after Hurrican Michael took everything away from them. Lives are still shattered and people are devastated at the lack of help that they are not receiving.

October 2018 Panama City Florida was hit hard by a category 5 hurricane named Michael. Funding has been delayed from congress and the area is still in a desperate situation. Many people are living in FEMA trailers, tents, and on the streets. Habitat for Humanity helps with repairs and building homes but funds are very limited. We need help, this is America we seem to have forgotten about the devastation this hurricane left behind. People in Panama City Florida all say the same thing we are the forgotten o
