Here are some images and videos from the hurricane's path:

Boats with bent frames sink into rubble at the Panama City marina. On shore, high-rise buildings are stripped of siding and walls, exposing tossled furniture inside.

Cleanup crews used construction equipment to scoop debris left by Hurricane Michael off of the causeway between Apalachicola and Eastpoint in Florida.

Power lines tangled with down trees block Florida roadways.

Drone video of Panama City shows buildings ripped apart and power lines down. Cinderblock and brick walls were demolished on the west side of the city, and the east reportedly sustained even more damage.

Satellite images captured the now tropical storm up the East Coast as of 6 a.m. Thursday morning.
