‘Best Convoy’: Publix trucks heading to help Hurricane Michael victims lifts spirits

National

(NBC6) — A line of Publix trucks bringing supplies to the Hurricane Michael-ravaged Florida Panhandle was a welcome sight for some passersby.

Video posted to Facebook by Ralph Alspach on Sunday showed a large convoy of Publix trucks being led by police cruiser heading down U.S. 231 toward the area hit hardest by Michael, which came ashore with maximum sustained winds of 155 mph last week.

“Best convoy known to mankind is coming over the hill,” Alspach says in the video. “Publix is here.”

Publix is just one of many companies and organizations pitching in to help the survivors of the hurricane, which has claimed at least 20 lives in Florida alone.

“We were on the way to Panama City to help some friends clear trees and we saw some depressing damage, but this convoy lifted our spirits! #Publix #HurricaneMichael,” Alspach wrote in his post.
