FLORIDA- Hurricane Michael struck the coastal areas of Florida on Wednesday with winds of 155mph (250km/h), destroying everything in its wake. Houses were ripped from their foundations, trees felled, and power lines strewn across streets.

At least six people died in the hurricane. 10 people were reported missing overnight.

Florida mayor Rick Scott said the hurricane left "unimaginable destruction" changing so many lives forever.

Winds speeds of Michael have reduced to 50mph. It is now heading towards north-east crossing Georgia and is closing in on Greensboro, North Carolina.
