  • Hurricane Michael: One year later

    By wind and water it came. Before leaving, Hurricane Michael nearly took with it what had taken more than 70 years of history to build. In its wake, the category 5 storm left behind a historic tragedy – although 12 months have passed, remains evident. The day of the storm began with a Tyndall Air Force Base, several nearby towns and the people who live and work there, intact. By dusk, life had dramatically changed. The base and surrounding communities took a direct hit from the third-largest hurricane to strike the continental United States. The storm damaged 95 percent of installation buildings and 100 percent of housing, many beyond repair.
