LEON COUNTY, Fla. (WTXL) - Leon County officials gave an update on Hurricane Michael's aftermath Thursday. 

The city said it will continue to maintain shelters and begin the damage assessments.

95 percent of the Leon County grid is down. They are asking people to remain patient and stay out of the way of line workers Thursday, so recovery can go quickly.  

"If you don't have a reason to be on the streets today please keep your selves in your home, in your neighborhoods, in your respective community. We don't want to do anything to impede the progress of our utilities companies in other government workers being able to get out and do their job,"  

The county said about 1,500 people left their homes in Tallahassee.

They are proud that the city is helping each other out by cutting trees out of yards.
