Back in the United States, the U.S. death toll from Hurricane Michael has risen to at least 36, as recovery workers have taken to crowdsourcing information on social media sites in an effort to reunite about 300 people still unaccounted for or reported missing. Meanwhile, the Air Force has acknowledged that some of its F-22 stealth fighter jets were damaged or destroyed as Hurricane Michael ripped through Tyndall Air Force Base, turning hangars into rubble. At least 17 of the jets—which cost $339 million each—were damaged or destroyed, meaning the cost of replacing them could total $5.7 billion.
