Doors bursted through,” Thomas said.”I had a comforter and four pillows on me and my girlfriend. Then as soon as we got there,the bathroom roof, whoop! The roof was gone.”

The death toll was 50, and 60,000 are without food or water,hungry and homeless.The Governor, Ron Desantis of Florida, extended his emergency declaration to all 67 counties by gathering for what was going to come.
