    As Panama City residents struggle to survive the horrible conditions in the storm's aftermath, many are concerned about looters. 

    "This hit so hard and so fast that a different aspect of human nature is going to come out and people are going to do anything to survive," said one Florida resident.

    Two men were caught on camera ransacking a Panama City convenience store, officials say.
