Hurricane Michael knocks CBS 17 sister station WMBB off air

PANAMA CITY, Fla. (WMBB) - The winds from Hurricane Michael have knocked WMBB in Panama City, Florida off the air.

The station has no power. It continues to stream and update its website.

As WMBB was on the air, its wind gage ripped off the roof. Viewers could hear the winds as it tore across the roof.  

“We’re feeling it,” said Amy Hoyt. “It sounds like the train is coming over the roof of the TV station. I mean, our building is shaking and this is an old cement building. It’s everything it was promised to be: Dangerous, devastating and life-threatening."

No one was injured and the news team is sheltering in place.
