Hurricane Michael has come and gone, but the devastation left behind will be around for a while.
For the most part, Pensacola dodged the storm’s wrath. Now, our neighbors to the east are picking up the pieces and the City of Pensacola will be helping in that effort.
“We were very fortunate to be spared by Hurricane Michael and can’t help but to think how close this storm came to us,” Mayor Ashton Hayward said. “Now it’s time for us to start helping our neighbors to the east of us. Pensacola is known for its compassion and volunteerism and we all want to help, but we need to make sure we're providing them with the right relief.”
