MEXICO BEACH, Florida - The search for survivors is intensifying along the Florida Panhandle on Saturday, three days after Hurricane Michael roared ashore.

At least 18 people in four states have died because of the storm, and with communication along the affected areas difficult, it is unclear how many more people have been reported missing.

First responders are going door to door looking for anyone who did not get out before the Hurricane passed through the region.

The hardest hit area is Mexico Beach, Florida. At least 85 percent of the town was wiped away, including the city hall, which is shown in one of the videos attached to this article.

Crews are making progress, but there is much work to be done to clear roads and clean up debris.

Power is still out to hundreds of thousands of residents, and there is no cell service available for miles.

Near Panama City, Tyndall Air Force Base is still unoccupied, as it is considered too dangerous for the 3,600 people stationed there.

The state and the federal government are trying to get gas, food and water to people who desparately need it.
