(WTXL) - It's been one week since Hurricane Michael ripped through Florida's Panhandle.

It is not immediately known how the people died.

But sheriff's deputies say they're finding more victims as the water recedes.

They also say people who did not evacuate could be buried beneath piles of concrete, wood, and metal.

The exact number of missing persons is not known.

The Florida Department of Health has provided an online form to help get a count of those unaccounted for.
