Nakon što je poharao Haiti, pri čemu je prema najnovijim procjenama poginulo oko 900 ljudi, uragan Matthew je udario savezne države Floridu, Sjevernu Karolinu i Virginiju. U najsnažnijoj oluji s Atlantika kakva nije zabilježena od 2007. godine poginulo je najmanje 11 osoba, javlja Reuters.

Uragan je prvo prošao istočnom obalom Floride i u međuvremenu oslabio s četvrte na prvu kategoriju, no udari vjetra od 120 km/h koji su pogodili Sjevernu Karolinu i Virginiju uzrokovali su nestanak struje, velike poplave i golemu materijalnu štetu. Na tisuće ljudi je evakuirano, a bez struje je ostalo više od 2,2 milijuna kućanstava, javlja CNN.

Pet ljudi poginulo je u Floridi, troje u Sjevernoj Karolini i troje u Georgiji, od čega je dvoje poginulo jer su se na njihove kuće srušila stabla.

Hurricane Matthew weakened to a Category 1 storm Saturday as it neared the end of a four-day rampage that left a trail of death and destruction across the Caribbean and up the US Atlantic coast. The full scale of the devastation in hurricane-hit rural Haiti became clear as the death toll surged past 400, three days after Hurricane Matthew leveled huge swaths of the country's south. / AFP PHOTO / Jewel SAMAD
