    • At least six people have died due to the storm. That includes four people killed in Florida, a man killed in his car in North Carolina, and an 11-year-old girl killed in Georgia. The death toll is likely to rise.

    Japan overcame far worse; as you say could take a while but will be done as there's no other choice.

    Ships wrecked on Dog Island in 1899 unearthed by Hurricane Michael

    Ships that washed ashore on Dog Island during the 1899 Carrabelle Hurricane were unearthed completely by Hurricane Michael's vicious storm surge last week.


    It’s unclear which of the 15 ships, or how many, that grounded on the Franklin County barrier island during the storm 119 years ago were unearthed.


    Sitting on the Gulf of Mexico side of the island, the wooden ships now rest in plain view near the west end of the island.

    They are well-documented wrecks, according to the Florida Department of State. Because state resources are being allocated to more urgent hurricane recovery efforts, there are no plans for state archaeologists to visit the site.


    “They’ve been mostly stationary since 1899 when they were wrecked in a hurricane,” wrote DOS spokeswoman Sarah Revell. “From time to time, some parts of the site have become exposed.”


    The 1899 hurricane crossed over the Florida Keys into the Gulf of Mexico where it strengthened into what would be classified today as a Category 2 storm. It sacked Lanark and St. Teresa Beach. In Carrabelle, it left just nine houses standing and killed one woman who was crushed by a house.

    But the Trump rallies continue. The lemmings do not care.
