Mayor Al Cathey said that 289 people, including 10 children, decided to stay put, despite evacuation orders, and ride out the Category 4 storm which made landfall on Wednesday and destroyed numerous homes and businesses in Mexico Beach, which has a population of nearly 1,200.

Cathey and Mexico Beach City Clerk Adrian Welle told ABC News that 46 of those who stayed behind were missing Sunday.

Of the 18 people killed as the hurricane swept through the Florida Panhandle, Virginia, Georgia and North Carolina, only one confirmed death has been reported in Mexico Beach.

Hurricane Michael made landfall at Mexico Beach with 155 mph winds.

Florida Gov. Rick Scott and Brock Long, administrator of the Federal Emergency Management Agency, toured the hard-hit areas of Mexico Beach, Panama City, Blountstown and Bristol on Sunday.

Police made two sweeps of Mexico Beach on Wednesday morning and recorded names of everyone who planned to stay, though officials said it is impossible to know who might have left during or immediately after the storm.

The storm not only destroyed homes and business in the city, it destroyed the Mexico Beach Police Department.

“We don’t have a building — from my understanding, the water surge moved it off its foundation,” Mexico Beach Police Chief Anthony Kelly told ABC News on Friday. “The officers, I finally made accountability of them all today, two days after the fact. … They’re not just my officers, the people that I work with, they’re my family.”

Emily Mitchell returned on Saturday afternoon to what was left of the house her family owned in Mexico Beach. The roof was ripped off, walls were blown in and she called it a “total loss.” They expect to just bulldoze the lot. They are unsure what their next step will be because her parents had decided they couldn’t afford to pay for hurricane insurance.

“We didn’t want to tell anybody about Mexico Beach because it was such a sweet town, we were scared that people would know about it and keep coming,” she said.

Hurricane Michael’s death toll climbed to 18 on Sunday. Officials expected the number of people killed by the storm to go higher as crews sifted through the wreckage of once-bustling oceanside cities, like Mexico Beach and Panama City Beach.

“There are individuals who are deceased. We do not have a count, but we are working to identify them,” Miami Fire Chief Joseph Zahralban, leader of a search-and-rescue team in Mexico Beach, told The Associated Press.

Lyrics
Hey!, if we can solve any problem
Then why do we lose so many tears
Oh, and so you go again
When the leading man appears
Always the same thing
Can’t you see, we’ve got everything goin’ on and on and on
Every time you go away you take a piece of me with you
Every time you go away you take a piece of me with you
Go on and go free, yeah
Maybe you’re too close to see
I can feel your body move
It doesn’t mean that much to me
I can’t go on sayin’ the same thing
Just can’t you see, we’ve got everything do you even know we know
Every time you go away you take a piece of me with you, oh
Every time you go away you take a piece of me with you
I can’t go on sayin’ the same thing
‘Cause baby, can’tcha see, we’ve got everything goin’ on and on and on
Every time you go away you take a piece of me with you
Every time you go away you take a piece of me with you
Looking at the pieces (Every time you go away)
Be careful (You take a piece of me with you)
(Every time you go away) Every time you go, every time you go
(You take a piece of me with you) You take a piece of me!
(Every time you go away you take a piece of me with you) Every time you go!

Cool weather arrives in Midwest, Northeast for official start of fall

A cold front brought severe storms from Ohio to upstate New York on Friday as the Northeast and Midwest brace for cooler temperatures on the first day of fall.

Over 50 reports of severe weather were received on Friday, including near Cleveland and Buffalo, New York. Just north of the border, the same system caused a tornado near Ottawa, Ontario, that injured over two dozen people, according to the Toronto Star.

Strong storms brought torrential rain to northern Texas early Saturday, with significant flash flooding reported in the Dallas metro area. Radar estimates showed 3 to 5 inches of rain have fallen locally in the region.

The threat of flash flooding continues Saturday morning in parts of the Southern Plains. Storms could have rainfall rates of 1 to 2 inches per hour. They will slowly drift to the east, spreading into the Mississippi River Valley by Saturday night and into Sunday.

Sign of the times

The arctic is beginning to get colder again as the Northern Hemisphere loses direct sunlight hours in the transition from summer to winter. The first widespread and noteworthy signs of a change of seasons are beginning to appear across much of the northern half of the country.

Fall will officially arrive at 9:54 p.m. on Saturday.

A shot of cooler air is moving into the Northern Plains and Midwest on Saturday. Low temperatures Saturday morning from North Dakota to northern Illinois will be in the 40s. The cooler air will expand and slide eastward on Sunday with 40-degree temperatures likely across much of interior New England.

For many from the Midwest to the Northeast Sunday morning will be the first time in months they will need to break out a light jacket.

Temperatures will rebound in the early part of next week, however, the longer-term forecast trends indicate a prolonged period of below-average temperatures is on the way to the central U.S.
