GADSDEN COUNTY, Fla. – A Florida Panhandle man was killed by a falling tree as Hurricane Michael tore through the state Wednesday, authorities said. 
  
Gadsden County Sheriff's Office spokeswoman Anglie Hightower said they received a call around 6 p.m. Wednesday, saying a tree had crashed through the roof of the man's Greensboro home and trapped him.

Emergency crews were heading to the home, but downed power lines and blocked roads were making the trip difficult.
