Former South Florida resident now living near Hurricane Michael's path

Posted at 7:35 PM, Oct 10, 2018

Kay Randoja is speaking by phone about Hurricane Michael. She did not evacuate. She lives 25 miles inland between Panama City and Pensacola.

"My husband went to the store and it was pretty busy. He got the last package of water and we've been freezing ice cubes and water jugs and stuff like that," said Randoja.

She has weathered many storms during her years when she lived in South Florida. She's learned to respect the power of hurricanes, but she said some may not realize what the storm is capable of doing.

"A few people on TV and they didn't seem as if they were alarmed. I thought people need to understand what you are facing I don't think people realize just how bad it could be," said Randoja. "Depending on how much damage is done, it's going to be difficult to get everything back the way you expected it to be."
