Hurricane Michael:

Memories in rearview mirror are closer than they appear

As if you needed reminding, one year ago Hurricane Michael rocked the communities of Chattahoochee, Sneads and numerous others across Florida, Georgia and Alabama. Since that time, downtown is back to its vibrant old self – almost all of the damage repaired, like plastic surgery hiding deep, painful scars. Granted, for survivors, there is much to be thankful for. But it doesn’t negate the fact that scores of our friends, relatives and neighbors still struggle with a tough new day-to-day reality, wrought by this historic natural disaster. How has life changed for you since Hurricane Michael? Does the storm feel like a distant memory, all but forgotten, or do you face daily reminders of Michael’s landscape-altering wrath? Whether grateful for progress or angry at the lack thereof since October 2018, we want to hear your stories. So, please, take a moment to share your thoughts: email editor@prioritynews.net.
