South Florida first responders pull bodies from rubble after Hurricane Michael

Hurricane Michael: Death Toll Rises To 18; More Than 1,000 Still Reported Missing

In a recent statement, FCC chairman Ajit Pai slammed USA carriers for their slow efforts to restore service in areas affected by Hurricane Michael.

"While the FCC has been in regular contact with companies serving the affected areas, I'm concerned that their actions on the ground aren't matching the urgency that we have conveyed during those conversations", Pai added.

The Trumps also planned to visit part of Georgia that was hit by Michael before they return to the White House on Monday evening, the White House said. But Pai wants more.

"It's unclear, at this point, whether he will hold any campaign events before the November 6 election, though it is still possible closer to election day", Scott spokesman Chris Hartline told newspapers, including the Tampa Bay Times. In addition, I have directed our Public Safety & Homeland Security Bureau to promptly initiate an investigation into this matter.

Search and rescue teams have crawled and walked through thousands of buildings and ruins for days in places like Mexico Beach, which was virtually wiped out when the storm roared ashore last week. Michael was the third most powerful Atlantic hurricane to make landfall in the United States. "These grants will provide Floridians who may have lost their jobs due to this devastating storm temporary employment opportunities and will allow them to support themselves and the ongoing recovery efforts in their communities". They say the hurricane potentially impacted 3.6 million acres (1.4 million hectares) of upland forest and 1 million acres (more than 400,000 hectares) of field crops in Florida.

Meanwhile, with power poles and lines down everywhere, power crews were hard at work trying to fix the damage.

Patriots "disinvite" fan who threw beer in Tyreek Hill's face
Gronkowski was unavailable following the game, but quarterback Tom Brady was more than happy to wax poetic about his tight end. After looking at the video, the Patriots determined which fan threw the beer at Hill and banned them from future games.

"We're working on it". The telecommunications giant later announced it would give a three-month credit to every Verizon customer in Bay and Gulf counties.

"I was checking on damages in the area on houses that belong to my family and I came across my grandma's house", Gee told ABC News. "Crews continue their fiber fix work throughout the day today".

The storm killed six persons in Virginia, three in North Carolina, and one in Georgia. Indirect deaths, which are typically more frequent, often happen during preparations and cleanup, including when someone slips and falls off a roof or dies of poisoning from carbon monoxide produced by a generator.

In Panama City, we are on standby to get remaining sites up as soon as fiber service is up and running.

Debris, downed trees and power lines have hampered access to stranded people, but CrowdSource said a number of its missing person reports resulted from widespread phone and power outages.
