If you have someone in the Florida Panhandle you still need to get in touch with or you need to let others know you're okay after Hurricane Michael we found some resources to help you out.

Getting in touch with your loved ones

If your family or friends did not evacuate before Hurricane Michael and you want to make sure they are okay there is a life safety report from the Florida National Guard you can fill out. By filling out the report with information about your loved one, your request will be sent from the State Emergency Operations Center to the relevant local agency already on the ground in that area.

Tell others you're okay

The American Red Cross provides a secure option that allows you to register yourself as "safe and well" and to search messages from your family and friends via their website. The website also gives you the option to choose a safe and well message that describes your status, such as "currently at friend/family member/neighbor's house" or "will make phone calls when able."
