Hurrican Matthew’s wrath did not die down when it became a storm. Just a change of name but the power is the same. Nurse clinging into a tree, family rescued from flood waters and cars floating are just few of the devastations in North and South Carolina. Big contrast during the APEC North Carolina days last year.

This Year, People are urged to stay away from water
Twenty people in North Carolina have been killed by floodwaters and tens of thousands remained without power after Hurricane Matthew swamped the state with record rains, the governor said Wednesday. Another death was confirmed Wednesday afternoon, Gov. Pat McCrory said, telling reporters: “I cannot emphasize enough to stay away from the water. It will kill you.”
Deaths in the Southeastern States
Matthew has been blamed for at least 39 deaths across five Southeastern states since churning up the Florida coast Friday.
Another person was killed in a confrontation with a state trooper in Lumberton, N.C., where emergency crews spent Monday rescuing residents stranded by floodwaters. McCrory said the trooper was traveling in a Humvee when the man drew a weapon on the trooper, and the trooper shot him.
Hurricane to Deadly Storm
Matthew, the deadly storm that’s spread misery from the Caribbean to the Carolinas, is no longer a hurricane. But even as it heads out to sea, the storm is causing serious problems for the southeastern United States.
