Hurricane Michael's startling savagery has so far resulted in six confirmed dead, and the devastation will be hard to forget.
The big picture: The post-storm footage is so awful that it would be astonishing for the toll to remain so low. Drone footage showed entire city blocks leveled, reminiscent of Tornado Alley towns after an F-4 or F-5. Roads are closed and power is out for more than a million in the southeast.
The N.Y. Times from the scene: "Ted Carranza could only watch with horror and wonder as Hurricane Michael lifted the houses all around him in the small town of Mexico Beach, Fla., then spun them around and dropped them."
Between the lines, per the AP:
The Dow fell another 545 points today, after closing down more than 800 yesterday. The NASDAQ was in correction territory for part of today.
Between the lines, from Axios' Courtenay Brown: This bull market has spoiled us. Pullbacks are normal (healthy, even), but they don't feel good because we haven't seen too many of them like this. Sure this could be the beginning of THE pullback, but that's not the sense I'm getting from a lot of strategists.
