Michael kills six and leaves Florida cities in ruins

Tropical storm Michael has claimed a life in North Carolina, bringing the total death toll from the storm to at least six.

Michael's trail of devastation stretches from the Florida Panhandle, where it wiped out one coastal city and left others swimming in debris, to the Carolinas and Virginia, where flash floods are turning roads into rivers.

Along the way, nearly 1.1 million customers in six states have been left without power.

The dead include four people in Florida, a child in Georgia and a man in North Carolina -- and authorities fear the death toll could climb as search-and-rescue efforts continue.
