Wreckage Left By Hurricane Michael Slows Relief Efforts

A bridge damaged by Hurricane Michael can be seen Friday in Mexico Beach, Fla. The most powerful hurricane ever known to have hit the Florida Panhandle has left transportation and communication infrastructure in shambles, slowing relief efforts.

Government and nonprofit agencies work in advance of storms to create distribution networks for critical aid, but the category 4 storm damaged key communications and transportation infrastructure.
