So that's up to 26 total, including the 13 deaths outside the US.
Now it’s up to 16 in the United States. I’ve read some of the Facebook pages of the most popular hangout spots in Panama City Beach. It looks like most had minor damage but nothing too serious. Even a few stores at Pier Park were open today according to their Facebook page.

Perhaps the highest winds speeds ever caught on video. Also downloaded level 2 data and found velocity bins of 211mph and 226mph, 2500-3000ft off the ground right around landfall. Also an absolute huge number of 155-164knt winds at 2500 or so feet really make me think this gets an upgrade.

TWC says the death toll in the US is up to 31. I think it's still at 15 in Central America so that's 46.

Where are those pictures from? They are some of the most impressive wind damage images I've seen yet. They are Andrew-like and ought to put to rest any notions that Michael was anything less than its operationally-assessed top-end Cat 4 at landfall.

Re-analysis will probably upgrade to Cat 5 if I have to bet money.

I want to say Patricia in 2015 had similar debarking, but I can't find the picture currently.

First two are screen grabs from chase videos and the last is from a news site. The first photo is from Tyndall AFB and the other two are from Mexico Beach.
