Florida loses another life, $1.3 billion in timber

Officials: 35 lives, $1.3 billion in timber lost to Michael

Florida's timber industry is projecting a $1.3 billion hit from Hurricane Michael, Agriculture Commissioner Adam Putnam said Friday.

"The number of victims grew after the local medical examiner confirmed the death of a woman in Bay County, bringing the death toll in Florida was 26". Family members say her body had been under rubble for five days before rescuers found her.

At least 36 people were killed as a result of hurricane Michael, raging on the territory of the United States of America.

The industry reported losses of almost 3 million acres of forestland in 11 counties because of the Category 4 storm, which cut a path October 10 from Bay County into southwestern Georgia.

"As the downed forest debris dries, the potential for wildfire conditions increase", said Jim Karels, State Forester and Director of the Florida Forest Service. Pulp mills, sawmills and other production facilities were damaged in 11 of the top timber-producing counties in state, Putnam said. The day the hurricane weakened to a tropical storm.

For residents of the hurricane-ravaged Florida Panhandle, everyday life is rife with fears, frustrations and the troubles of just trying to get by. He says those lines could become deadly as service is restored.
