Local group ‘takes off’ to assist in evacuating patients from damaged PCB hospital

COLUMBUS, GA (WTVM) - A group from the local area is lending a helping hand to patients at a damaged hospital in Panama City Beach.

Hurricane Michael was the strongest hurricane to hit the Panhandle of Florida and left a trail of disaster behind before it weakened to a tropical storm.

The eye of the storm ripped through Panama City Beach with winds over 150 MPH causing a trail of damage.

Many patients, family, and community members need assistance as emergency groups asses the damage.

The Life Saver 3 of Auburn/ Opelika left this morning to help with evacuating patients from a damaged hospital.

Lifesaver 3 is heading to Panama City Beach to assist in evacuating patients from a damaged hospital. Please remember these patients and crews in your prayers over the coming days. #hurricanemichael #weareontheway
