The death toll from Category 4 Hurricane Michael has risen to 33 people, as search-and-rescue efforts continue a week after the devastating storm flattened parts of the Florida Panhandle. As many as 160,000 homes and businesses across the southeast United States still have no power, and over 1,000 people are still living in emergency shelters. Hurricane Michael was one of the most powerful storms ever to strike the U.S. mainland. Meteorologists say it was supercharged by warmer-than-usual water in the Gulf of Mexico.
