Evacuated residents of Mexico Beach, Fla., are returning to pick through the remnants of their homes after Hurricane Michael, searching for any piece of their lives the storm didn’t destroy. In many cases, it’s not much. Nancy and Taylor Register returned Wednesday to find the camper they had lived in completely gone, with only a small stool, a hose, and one memento from a friend left behind. Nancy Register wept over the loss of an old, black-and-white photo of her mother, who died of cancer. Similar scenes played out throughout the devastated community.
