The stunning scope of Hurricane Michael's deadly rampage started coming into focus Thursday, as dawn in Panama City, Florida revealed a sprawling mess of almost unimaginable devastation wrought by the third-most powerful hurricane in recorded history to lash the U.S. mainland. In Panama City, located just west of where the monster storm made landfall, drone video taken by storm chaser Brett Adair shows how the winds and rain ravaged a middle school. There were at least 5 confirmed fatalities in Bay County alone, a Panama City Police source told Fox News. Extreme winds from Hurricane Michael gutted roofs and facades of beachfront condominiums in Panama City Beach, Fla., sending debris to the streets below. Fox News' Rick Leventhal and Jonathan Serrie in Panama City Beach, Fox News' Lucas Tomlinson, Stephen Sorace and The Associated Press contributed to this report.
