Roadscapes Wednesday: Hurricane Michael Evacuations In Panama City


Hurricane Michael is a major hurricane and is about to be one of the strongest hurricanes to make landfall along the Florida Panhandle.  One thing that makes a evacuation harder is the lack of freeways connecting Panama City or Destin to Interstate 10.  So traffic wanting to evacuate must head north along 4-lane highways filled with numerous traffic signals.  This backs up traffic and makes it harder to evacuate.  I hope the DOT in Florida will start thinking about new highways after this storm is long gone.

Anyways, Live Storms Media recorded major traffic backups with a drone in Panama City.  Godspeed to people who stayed behind.
