Tony Thompson runs The Progressive Pub over at The Orbit. He lives about 24 miles from Mexico Beach, FL which is where the eye of Hurricane Michael made landfall. He posted this update on his Facebook page:
Our home lost power, but no substantial damage (other than tiles from the roof and panels from the side). We also have no running water. Electricity may be up and running around the 20th. Hopefully.
We do have a generator with a supply of canned food and other dry goods.
We are not in dire need of anything at the moment. Money will be an issue when this is more or less done, but thats a later concern.
If you want to help him out, you can send your donations to his PayPal account. You can also donate to one of these charities to help out in general. Hopefully, he, along with the other residents of the Florida Panhandle will recover quickly from this disaster.
