On October 10, 2018, a category 5 hurricane hit the panhandle of Florida. Left in its wake are thousands of damaged buildings. Some will be rebuilt or repaired, and some will be torn down; however, many are left exactly as they were over a year ago and may possibly remain that way forever. These are not your usual abandoned buildings. They are the remains of people's homes, businesses, boats, and livelihoods. This book is a respectful representation of the destruction that Hurricane Michael left and the bittersweet beauty of the abandoned buildings still standing. In Abandoned After the Storm: Hurricane Michael, photographer Kim Hill allows a glimpse into the remains of what was left in hopes of drawing attention to the struggle that the people of the panhandle are still dealing with.
