"It's all right. We didn't get hurt or anything. But when the water started coming up, I was more scared than any time I've ever been scared in my life. I could cry even to think about it because I didn't know when it was going to stop. I'm thinking what will happen if it gets over our head, but it didn't."

Storyline


At least six people were killed as Hurricane Michael blows through southeastern United States.

Michael made landfall in the Florida Panhandle on Wednesday as a Category 4 hurricane, the strongest on record to hit the area, and charged north through Georgia and into the Carolinas and Virginia, causing massive damage with gusty winds and torrential rains.

The storm wipes out homes, schools and trees on its way, and has so far left about one million people without power or communications.

Local resident Debby McCoy said it was a life-threatening situation when the flush floods came along with the storm.

"When the water started coming up, I was more scared than any time I've ever been scared in my life. I could cry even to think about it because I didn't know when it was going to stop," she said.
