Video: Michael causes catastrophic damage in Mexico Beach, FL

Northwest Florida

MEXICO BEACH, Fla (CNN) Hurricane Michael made landfall Wednesday afternoon near Mexico Beach.

This video shows the intense flooding and destruction caused by the category four storm in that area.

Michael slammed the Florida panhandle with 155 mile per hour winds…which snapped trees and tore off roofs.

And it’s the strongest hurricane to hit the Florida panhandle in recorded history.

Florida Governor Rick Scott requested a major disaster declaration from the federal government to help expedite funding and resources.
