LYNN HAVEN, Fla. (AP) - For people without a lot of money, the destruction caused by Hurricane Michael on the Florida Panhandle is especially devastating.
  
Seventy-two-year-old Mary Frances Parrish is expecting to be without electricity for weeks, roughly the same time the terminally ill son she's caring for is expected to live.
  
She's one of many in the area around Panama City, Florida, whose homes were damaged or destroyed when the powerful hurricane blew ashore on Wednesday.
  
Their damaged homes have no power and no running water, and it could be weeks before utilities are restored.
  
Other people lost their livelihoods in the storm because the businesses they worked for were destroyed.
