TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (WTXL) - Now that Hurricane Michael has rolled through, many people are left to pick up the pieces.

WTXL ABC's Jada Williams was live early Thursday morning in Tallahassee and surveyed the damage.

Driving through Tallahassee on Thursday morning, Williams saw that most of the traffic lights were out and many businesses were pitch black.

But the real damage she saw was the debris from trees around town.

"I’m on Bradford road between north Monroe and Thomasville, and driving down this road, there are multiple large trees blocking it," she said. "Some have cones and barricades, but others are just down without much warning."

The blockages will definitely be a problem for people attempting to travel Thursday morning.

"It’s pitch black dark and if you’re not careful, you could miss this debris," Williams said. "I’ve seen officers and utility workers driving around this morning, so there are efforts to clear the debris and get power back up and running."
