MEXICO BEACH, Fla. -- Google has updated its Street View images along Mexico Beach to show ground-level looks at the damages caused by Hurricane Michael earlier this month.

Michael made landfall near Mexico Beach on October 10th as the thirst-most intense Atlantic hurricane to make landfall in the United States.

The storm ravaged the beachside town , destroying the majority of structures in town.

The new images uploaded to Google Street View were taken from a vehicle driving along Highway 98 through the town shortly after the storm, and show piles of debris everywhere and crews working on cleanup details.
