Hurricane Michael will go north of Florida for years to come, according to five farmers who update the damage given to the Seanad panel on Monday.

Michael just hit wood strands, tomatoes and cotton bars ready for autumn. Wind at 150 mph created a snow landscape of cotton debris. Hundreds of thousands of acres of trees, worth $ 1.2 billion, were doubled and crossed and left to decompose the storm when they dropped.

"Pine tree is about 15-20 years before it goes into market," Mr said. George Gainer, R-Panama City. "We've seen a long time the landscape we had for six months ago."

Destroy the torrential growth of grass, corn and vegetable. The wind, as described as a tornado, is 60 miles wide, shovels and hedgerows.
