Hurricane Michael has claimed at least 18 lives as of Sunday afternoon, a figure that could very well rise as search and rescue teams clear debris and look for survivors.
Michael's path was immense, impacting residents from Florida to Virginia. Four days after Michael made landfall Wednesday, a victim was found in Virginia, increasing the death toll to 18.
Roughly 190,000 Floridians lost power and many are still waiting on supplies from support crews. Some managed to seek help by using blown-down tree logs to spell "HELP" on the ground. Florida officials ordered the evacuation of roughly 3,000 inmates in the wake of the storm, because the prisons had been damaged.
As of Sunday, 435,000 people are still without power due to Michael across several states, according to CNN.
Al Cathey, the mayor of Mexico Beach, Fla., near where the powerful Category 4 storm made landfall, estimated that some 250 residents tried to wait out the storm. While he remains confident that these holdouts are safe, as search-and-rescue crews have already surveyed the worst-hit areas, Cathey did admit, "If we lose only one life, to me that's going to be a miracle."
President Trump has plans to visit both Georgia and Florida on Monday to personally survey the extent of the devastation.
