Five Lives claimed by the deadly Hurricane Florence in North Carolina

The deadly storm, whose destructive power was unlike any the area has seen in a generation, had already caused at least five fatalities. All five deaths were reported in North Carolina. Winds of up to 70mph (110km/h) are also expected for several days as the weather system slowly grinds over. Almost 800,000 people are reported to be without power already in North Carolina, and officials have warned restoring electricity could take days or even weeks.
A mother and her infant were killed in Wilmington when a tree fell on their home on Friday. Officials say the child’s father was also transported to hospital for injuries.
