It killed at least 12 people in Florida, Georgia, North Carolina and Virginia, officials said.

"Tropical storm wind gusts will continue across much of SC and central and eastern North Carolina, with sustained tropical storm force winds expected along the coast of the Carolinas", the agency said. Michael's outer bands still could drop up to 3 inches of rain from New Jersey to Long Island to Cape Cod, and up to 5 inches over the MA islands of Nantucket and Martha's Vineyard through Friday afternoon, forecasters said. The facility is running on power generators, and helicopters have delivered food and water, the state's Department of Children and Families said. Large oak trees toppled onto houses and cars.

Even the newest homes, built to withstand powerful storms, were obliterated by the Category 4 hurricane's 250 kilometre-an-hour winds and three-metre storm surge. "I met one woman who had this attractive little home on this great piece of land that she called her "little piece of perfect" and now she can't even go into her home because the mould's so bad", she explained. "It's just how do we get together, how do we recover?" He said it was unclear if the man lived alone or with a family. "Our lives are gone here". Town Manager David Lambert said he was prepared for Michael, but wasn't expecting much destruction.

"It's hard to grasp", he said.

Hurricane Michael's assault on the Florida Panhandle left nothing more than empty foundations and heaps of rubble in some parts of the small towns it crashed into with near-record force on Wednesday.

Emergency personnel scoured through areas where entire blocks of homes and buildings were flattened, searching for survivors.

The number was expected to rise as the storm exited the state late Thursday, Duke said in a tweet. Damage to the hospital appeared to be limited to a water main break caused by an uprooted tree and some broken windows. "We had probably about half an inch of water on my floor and no way to stop it from coming in". "I'll never step back in there", she says through her tears.

Mishelle McPherson's elderly neighbour was among those who stayed behind.

Brad Rippey, a meteorologist for the U.S. agriculture department, said Michael severely damaged cotton, timber, pecan and peanut crops, causing estimated liabilities as high as $1.9bn and affecting up to 3.7m crop acres (1.5m hectares). "Yes, it is all about helping others".

Devastating tropical hurricane Michael, which covered the American state of Georgia on Wednesday, claimed the lives of 11 people.

"I think you're going to see it climb", Brock Long, administrator of the Federal Emergency Management Agency, said of the death count at a news conference.

Although Floridians remember Hurricane Wilma for raking the state from west to east in October 2005, it's famous among meteorologists for its explosive gain of strength over the western Caribbean, shooting from tropical storm to strong Category 5 hurricane, with 185 miles per hour winds, in two days.
