After making landfall Wednesday as the most powerful hurricane on record to hit Florida's Panhandle, Hurricane Michael has left a trail of disaster across multiple states.

Although Michael weakened Thursday to a tropical storm, it has killed at least seven people and impacted Florida, Georgia, the Carolinas and Virginia. The damage has been astonishing, with entire neighborhoods wiped out in some locations.

The storm made history as the third strongest to hit the United States mainland in recorded history after making landfall Wednesday as a Category 4.
