Marianna moving forward after Hurricane Michael


JACKSON COUNTY, Fla. — Marianna is moving forward after Hurricane Michael swept through the city.

The devastation left trees on top of historical homes and many residents without power. Since the hurricane, the city has begun with its recovery process.

Christy Andreasen, of the Jackson County Tourist Council, tells WDHN that tourists have slowly started to come back in town. Many of the state parks are open and the council is currently working camping sites reopened.

“Our hotels are starting to see more vacationers instead of the workers and of course, our shopping and dining have been pretty good since the storm. I think it’s getting back to the swing of regular and of course, the tourist base is coming through,” Andreasen said.

The city is making massive strides to get back to its normal way of life.
