Mexico Beach mayor “shocked” by destruction
“I am totally shocked what this has done to our entire town,”Miami Beach Mayor Al Cathey told CBS News on Friday. Cathey has lived in Mexico Beach for 65 years. Now, he barely recognizes his hometown.
Crews are slowly starting to pick up the pieces. During a tour with the mayor, he had to borrow a satellite phone from CBS News to make a call to a local hardware store to get supplies.
Hurricane Michael toppled trees and downed power lines in Florida, making made some roads impassable. The only way to reach some people stranded by the storm was from the air. CBS News’ Jericka Duncan took a ride with a Coast Guard team from Detroit and saw a staggering amount of devastation.
