Eyewitness News’ Amelia Young is in the historic district of downtown Panama City, Florida on Wednesday.
She’s down there helping our sister station in Panama City, which was heavily damaged, cover the impact Hurricane Michael left behind.
Amelia reports the amount of damage has truly stuck out.
The debris piles range from 5-20 feet tall, including people’s belongings and trees.
Electricity is back on for most people.
Volunteers are down in the area, providing hot meals for people in the area.
Only a handful of restaurants have been able to reopen.
Many residents are still working on rebuilding.

Authorities say everyone is looking forward to starting over.
