One journalist managed to tunnel through downed trees and infrastructure like telephone poles and power lines early Thursday to get to Mexico Beach, only to find dwellings that “looked like doll houses” ripped in half, with toilets and refrigerators strewn about, having been torn from homes in what authorities are calling the largest Hurricane to hit Florida this century.
