CHATTAHOOCHEE, Fla. (WTXL) - Many in the Panhandle and the Big Bend are rebuilding following Hurricane Michael. 

Neighbors are helping other neighbors clean their yards and many are driving in from other parts of town, just to provide hot meals and cold drinks to those who have nothing left.

One family in Chattahoochee says that they never expected the storm to hit their little town so hard. The family didn't prepare well enough, saying they never stocked up on food and water. 

"We wasn't looking for it to hit us little small communities but there's a first time for everything," said resident Clifford Jackson. "We weren't prepared for it, but I'm pretty sure the next time they holler out a storm coming, everybody running to the store to get canned goods and water first." 

Jackson says he and his family are currently relying on food and water from shelters and good Samaritans.
