Video: News4Jax crew captures Hurricane Michael roaring ashore

As Hurricane Michael roared ashore along the Panhandle, a News4Jax crew watched the brutal winds and rain whipping by in Panama City Beach.

Power and cellphone reception went down, and a three-story building under construction was ripped apart.

“It's the most intense storm I've ever seen,” said Vic Micolucci, a veteran reporter who's covered several hurricanes.

Vic's signal went down suddenly during a live report, but he found a line to call the station and say he and his photographer were safe.
