Northern Michigan “Snowbirds” Worry About the Damage to Come from Hurricane Michael

As the seasons change here in Northern Michigan many of us know people planning to head south to places like Florida for the colder months.

9&10 News caught up with Evelyn Flynn who spends her summers in the Topinabee area, but goes to her home southeast of the panhandle in Bonita Springs every winter.

Last year a storm tore off her roof.

Seeing it firsthand has her worried about the damage Hurricane Michael can bring to the pan-handle, an area she frequently visits.

“It was overwhelming for them, because they were left behind to clean up so much of the devastation that had happened. It’s alarming how much damage one can cause and for those who stay, they shouldn’t stay.

Evelyn says she heads to her Florida home in December.
