Damage to agriculture industry in Georgia because of Hurricane Michael

From Florida to Virginia, states are recovering from multiple punches thrown at them by Hurricane Michael. Meteorologically, Michael had the third-lowest pressure reading of any storm to strike the United States mainland. At 919 millibars, it ranks behind an unnamed Labor Day hurricane (1935) and Hurricane Camille (1969). The jaw-dropping images coming from Mexico Beach, Florida and Panama City Beach, Florida are indicative of what meteorologists like me would expect from a storm with 150+ mph winds striking a populated area.
