In stricken Panama City, relief effort battles dark, debris

Clip: 10/16/2018 | 3m 58s

Almost a week after Hurricane Michael devastated the Florida Panhandle, electricity remains off in Panama City, and debris is so widespread that a curfew prohibits travel after dark. Only a small proportion of residents evacuated before the storm hit; the rest are now in need of food and hydration. Amna Nawaz speaks with the Salvation Army's Alvin Migues for more on the damage and relief effort.
